Please read my disclosure policy. One Pan Lemon Parmesan Chicken and Asparagus: lightly breaded garlicky lemon parmesan chicken and asparagus all cooked on one pan. We had this parmesan asparagus for about a week straight after I bought all the asparagus when it went on a local sale. After that all I wanted was more asparagus and when the husband asked for it, I knew it was time to make some more meals with asparagus. Enter this delicious and ONE PAN lemon parmesan chicken & asparagus. This meal is incredibly easy to make and there are so many amazing flavors. It is sure to be a favorite meal this Spring and Summer! The actual idea for this dish is based off a couple of things. First off this amazing salmon dish by Cooking Classy. I loved the look of the dish and the ease of her instructions! I still haven’t tried her recipe, but it’s absolutely happening soon. Next week? I think yes. And second were these coconut chicken tenders. I did all the testing/video making/photos for those tenders while the husband was out of town. When he came back I made them once more for him and he seriously raved about them for days. I wish I had waited to do all the testing when he was home since he loved it so much. So in attempts to make another rave-worthy meal I made a similar breaded chicken with the requested asparagus. #wifewin This dinner is so easy to make and bursting with fresh Spring flavors. The chicken gets lightly breaded in a Parmesan + seasonings + Panko (Panko is generally used in Japanese cooking and it can be found in the grocery store in the Asian foods aisle. I definitely prefer panko to regular breadcrumbs because of its lighter and more delicate texture. It results in a more crispy and crunchy end product than breadcrumbs. Especially when you are baking chicken instead of frying; the panko makes a huge difference!). Before it’s coated, it’s dredged in a lemon garlic butter to infuse it with plenty of lemony garlic flavor. That same sauce is also poured over the asparagus (easy effort, double the reward!) which gives it a fresh lemony garlic flavor. And finally, there is a simple lemon glaze that is optional but really amps up the lemon flavor. Olive oil + lemon juice & zest + butter + honey. It takes a couple of minutes to whip together and gives the chicken a burst of delicious flavor. I really think you’ll love it!
