Summer Cooking | Sheet Pan Meal

Well my libations series is done so I thought I would add some meals that are easy to prepare + and light for summer.  Some of these I’ve tried and some are already in que for some tasty Sunday dinners.  The Garlic Butter with Chicken + Asparagus recipe comes from Eatwell 101 and it just can’t get any easier.

INGREDIENTS LIST FOR THE GARLIC BUTTER SHEET PAN CHICKENGarlic-Butter-Chicken-asparagus-recipes

  • 6 to 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 to 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 coffeespoon Italian herbs (dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Slices of lemon, for garnish
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, lemon juice, garlic, honey, Italian herbs; season with salt and pepper, to taste and set aside.
  3. In a skillet over medium fire, brown chicken thighs on both sides for 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Arrange browned chicken thighs and asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Drizzle and brush the butter mixture over the chicken and asparagus and arrange lemon slices on top of chicken.
  6. Bake into the oven until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

IMG_5569I tried this meal last month + and it was fantastic.  Simple ingredients + not too many steps and overall a great meal.

I think we had it with rice pilaf [I can’t remember] but it was so tasty and for two people + this stretched out for about 3 days … I hope you give it a try … if so let me know in the comments … and if you like this post + show some love by following.
