Thank god it’s Friday! And what’s on the agenda for dinner this evening? If you’re not sure, than look no further! This easy to make one pan dinner is a new favorite for sure. Don’t know about you, but it’s been a long week, and I could use an easy to make dinner right about now. And a chicken dinner is just what the doctor ordered.
All the lemony flavors in this meal are delicious and refreshing, perfect for the spring and summer time weather we have been experiencing lately. If you have read some of our blogs, you may notice I often talk about the weather. I have this fascination for it that goes all the way back to my childhood. One of my favorite channels is the weather channel, of course; something I don’t admit often, so if you can’t tell, this is me baring my soul. Growing up in Los Angeles, crazy weather is not something we experience very often, and I am oddly excited when we do! Weird? Yes, but it makes sense. We all want something we don’t have, and I want WEATHER! Ok, I am done geeking out, thanks for listening.
Currently we are experiencing a mix of clouds and sun and that is typical springtime in LA. It’s no wonder we’ve all been craving less hearty, and more summery recipes. And this is certainly a rave worthy recipe. The first time I made it, and this is easily done, I slightly overcooked the chicken. Something I improved upon when making it the second time around, and finally I got the time down just right. I find chicken is the one thing I tend to overcook and that’s over the fear of eating raw chicken, NOT A FUN EXPERIENCE! Please be sure to thoroughly cook your chicken, even if it means removing the asparagus and cooking the chicken for longer. I totally did that, but I have a thing for halfway cooked vegetables. The crunchier the better I say. Hope you all have a great weekend, and happy eating!
