Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

Simple lemon chicken & asparagus foil packs are an easy and incredibly delicious 30-minute meal you can either grill, or bake any time of the year.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness, OR 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (see note)
  • 1 large bundle of asparagus spears (about 1 pound)
  • 1 lemon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Instructions

  • Lay four 12×12 inch squares of foil out on a flat surface. Place one chicken breasts (or 1-2 thighs) in the middle of each piece of foil.
  • Trim the flat end of the asparagus at 1-2 inches from the end and discard. Cut the remaining spears in half and divided them between the foil packs.
  • Thinly slice one of the lemons and divide the slices between the foil packs, tucking the slices in, around, and between the chicken and asparagus.
  • Stir together butter, garlic, juice of the remaining lemon, and Italian seasoning. Brush over chicken and asparagus. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Fold the foil over the chicken and asparagus to close off the pack, pinch the ends together so the pack stays closed.
  • Grill over medium-high heat for 7-9 minutes on each side OR bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and asparagus is tender. Serve immediately.
