Better Bites: Chicken Asparagus Bake
I like dishes that have several elements in the same dish. This is especially true of healthy dishes. When you have several components coming together it just makes the flavor pop!
This dish takes chicken breasts, pairs them with onion, herbs and asparagus to give you a healthy, yet hearty dish, that tastes superb! It also comes together very quickly and takes less than an hour to bake. (I like to bake it in my toaster oven!) Quick, healthy and delicious...You can't get better than that!
What You'll Need:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 small onion, chopped
1 bunch of asparagus, chopped
2 sprigs of rosemary, stripped from the stem
2 springs of thyme, stripped from the stem
Freshly ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Place chicken breasts in an 8 X 8 inch dish. Top with onions and asparagus. Sprinkle the dish with sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until chicken is done through and vegetables are tender.
Makes 2 servings.
Notes: You can use other herbs if you like. You can also add in other vegetables. Squash and zucchini would be good this time of year. Or how about some mushrooms? The possibilities are endless.

You could, but I don't. It cooks so quickly that you don't have to unless you just want to.
