5 Easy Ingredient Lemon Chicken With Asparagus

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1–2 cups chopped asparagus
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 2 tablespoons honey + 2 tablespoons butter (optional)
  • parsley for topping (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Chicken: Cover the chicken breasts with plastic wrap and pound until each pieces is about a 3/4 of an inch thick. (NOTE: If your chicken breasts are really thick you can just cut them in half horizontally to make thinner pieces rather than pounding. Works like a charm.) Place the flour and salt and pepper in a shallow dish and gently toss each chicken breast in the dish to coat. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat; add the chicken and saute for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown sprinkling each side with the lemon pepper directly in the pan. When the chicken is golden brown and cooked through transfer to a plate.
  2. Asparagus and Lemons: Add the chopped asparagus to the pan. Saute for a few minutes until bright green and tender crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside. Lay the lemon slices flat on the bottom of the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side without stirring so that they caramelize and pick up the browned bits left in the pan from the chicken and butter. (NOTE: adding a tiny pat of butter in with the lemons also helps prevent sticking and promote browning.) Remove the lemons from the pan and set aside.
  3. Assembly: Layer all the ingredients back into the skillet – asparagus chicken and lemon slices on top.
