Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts (about 5 oz each)
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 1 fresh lemon, sliced
  • 1 bunch of fresh rosemary
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • sea salt, if desired

Instructions

  • For each serving:  Season both sides of chicken breast with lemon pepper seasoning.  Place one breast onto a 12" by 12" sheet of foil that has been lightly coated with olive oil or coconut oil.
  • Add 5-6 asparagus spears next to each chicken breast.  Then add a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon.  Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
  • Fold the edges of the foil over the chicken and asparagus to tightly seal. Repeat for each serving. Place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and reaches 160 degrees.  Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes before opening. Carefully open foil packet as contents will be hot!

Notes

(A) Larger chicken breasts will require longer baking time so please keep in mind and use a cooking thermometer. (B) This recipe calls for asparagus but you can also use green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, or whatever your favorite vegetable is
