  • lb Boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even 1⁄2 inch thickness and cut in half
  • 1 lb Asparagus ends trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil divided
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 Lemon juice and zest
  • ¼ Cup Low sodium chicken broth
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh chopped parsley to garnish
  • lemon slices to garnish


  • In a mixing bowl add chicken, garlic, and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and stir well to coat.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5 minutes, or until almost cooked through. (will finish it together with the rest of the ingredients.)
  • Stir in asparagus, cherry tomatoes, broth, lemon juice, and zest. Lower the heat, place a lid on and cook, for 4-6 minutes or until chicken is tender cooked through and no longer pink on the inside.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and lemon slices. Serve immediately or divide among 4 glass containers and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
