Heat the garlic on medium low in the sesame oil just for a minute, until it is golden and fragrant, but not burnt. Add the broccoli florets and asparagus spears and the vegetable broth and cover.
Cook for about 5 minutes, to allow to steam.
Meanwhile, whisk together the soy sauce, honey and scallions. Remove the lid of the pot and put the vegetables in a bowl. Add the remaining sesame oil, chicken, scallions, soy sauce, ginger, and honey to the pot. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently, for 3- 5 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink. Add in the vegetables and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle on the sesame seeds just prior to serving, if using. Serve with brown rice, if desired.
