Try This Delicious Lemon Chicken With Asparagus Recipe

What you will need:

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • Plastic wrap
  • ½ c. flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • Lemon pepper
  • 2 c. chopped asparagus
  • 2 lemons, sliced


  1. Cover chicken breasts with plastic wrap, and pound until each piece is about ¾ of an inch thick.
  1. Place the flour — and salt and pepper to taste — in a shallow dish, and mix together.
  1. Use a fork to dip each of the chicken breasts into the flour mixture, gently tossing each breast to thoroughly coat all sides.
  1. Melt 2 tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium high heat, add the chicken, and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes (or until golden brown) while sprinkling each side of the chicken breasts with lemon pepper directly into the skillet. Once cooked thoroughly, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  1. In the same large skillet, sauté chopped asparagus for a few minutes until bright green and tender crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  1. Add 1 tbsp. of butter to the skillet. Lay lemon slices flat on the bottom, and cook for a few minutes on each side without stirring until each slice is caramelized and browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  1. To serve, layer asparagus, chicken, and lemon slices onto a plate. Enjoy!
