One Pan Chicken Dinner
Mix up your marinade ingredients. Feel free to experiment using items from your kitchen pantry.
Is it just me, or are chicken breasts in the grocery store crazy huge? I mean, what planet are these chickens from? For this recipe, I fed my entire family with 2 (yes 2) chicken breasts. Depending on which planet your chickens come from, you may have to use 4.
Slice the breasts lengthwise into cutlet or strip sized pieces. Place in marinade, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
While the breasts are soaking up the yummy marinade, chop up your potatoes. Place them on a shallow baking pan with a rim, and toss with oil and seasoning.
Place the marinated chicken cutlets on top of the potatoes, and bake for 30 minutes.
Prepare the asparagus by washing, drying, and break the woody ends off. I just grab a small handful, and wrap my hand around the main stem, and gently bend the hard ends until they snap. (They will snap at the right place.)
After 30 minutes, place the asparagus on pan. Tilt the pan and toss the asparagus in the oil and cooking juices. Add more oil if needed and add salt and pepper.
Return to oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the asparagus is crisp-tender, the potatoes are cooked and the chicken juices run clear.
Let rest for a few minutes then time to eat! One Pan Chicken Dinner is done.
