Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Asparagus

grilled lemon chicken and asparagus

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch asparagus

 

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your grill or pan to medium-high heat.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the juice and zest of the lemon, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper.

  3. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow bowl dish and pour the marinade over them. Let them marinate for about 10-15 minutes.

  4. While the chicken is marinating, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Trim the base ends of the asparagus. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss to coat. Place them on a baking sheet. 

  5. Place the asparagus in the preheated oven and roast for about 12-15 minutes until tender but still crisp.

  6. While the asparagus is roasting, remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the preheated grill. Cook for about 6-8 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center.

  7. Once the chicken is done, remove from the grill and set aside to rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it into thin strips.

  8. Serve the grilled lemon herb chicken alongside the roasted asparagus. You can squeeze some additional fresh lemon juice over the chicken for extra flavor if desired.
