One Pan Honey Lemon Chicken Asparagus

After being out of town this past weekend, my lunch meal prepping for the week didn’t happen until Monday night. So I wanted something simple and easy to throw together. As you might know, one sheet pan (or pot) meals are one of my favorite things. It makes meal prepping so much easier, and at the end of it all you don’t have a ton of dishes leftover to clean.

This was another Pinterest find, and comes from the blog Cafe Delites. Check out the original recipe here!

Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 bunches asparagus (37-40 spears), ends removed
  • Salt and pepper to season
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange chicken on the sheet and season with salt (I split the breasts in half to make them a little thinner) Set pan aside.

  2. Combine together the lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Pour about three quarters of the mixture over the chicken.
  3. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked thru. Once cooking is complete, remove the pan and uncover the chicken. Next, arrange the asparagus around the chicken and pour the remaining honey lemon mixture over the asparagus. Season the asparagus with salt and pepper.
  4. Return the pan to the oven and set on broil until the chicken is golden and the asparagus is cooked.
  5. Serve it up!
