One Pan Creamy Lemon Chicken and Asparagus
So good you can bet there won't be any leftovers.
- 4 Eva All Natural Chicken Breasts
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 tsp Italian Herb Blend (If you prefer to make your own you can use ¼ teaspoon dried thyme, ¼ teaspoon dried parsley, ¼ teaspoon dried basil, ¼ teaspoon dried oregano)
- 4 tbsp Butter (Divided )

- 1 lb Asparagus (Ends Trimmed)
- 1 Lemon (Divided )

Coat chicken all over with oil, season with salt and pepper to taste and dried herbs.
Add 2 tablespoons butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Once melted, stir in honey.
Place chicken in the pan and cook 5-7 minutes on each side until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add asparagus to the pan, cook for 5-7 minutes, turning the asparagus every couple of minutes until fork tender. Transfer to the plate with the chicken, cover to keep warm.
Add butter and garlic to the pan and stir over medium heat 1-2 minutes until browned and fragrant.
Stir in broth and cream. Bring liquid to a boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Add chicken and asparagus back to the pan, cook 1-2 minutes until hot throughout. Spoon pan sauce over the chicken and asparagus and serve while hot.
