Asparagus is a great veggie for one-pan meals because it cooks quickly.

DO I HAVE TO USE ALL THE BUTTER?

Ever since I’ve done the Keto diet I’m not afraid of fat like butter. If you want, you can definitely cut the butter down for this recipe.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS?

This is a full meal in itself but if you want to spread it out serve over rice or cauliflower rice for a low-carb option.

One-Pan Garlic Butter Chicken

prep time:5 MIN Scook time:15 MINS

INGREDIENTS

CHICKEN SEASONING:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, minced

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place chicken in a medium bowl and toss with the spices (salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper).
  2. In a large skillet, melt over medium low heat half of the butter (1/4 cup) and 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
  3. Cook the chicken in the butter until all sides are golden brown being careful not to burn the butter. Add 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and Italian seasoning and cook for about 30 seconds. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet increase heat to medium high, add the remaining 1 teaspoon minced garlic then add the chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Add the remaining 1/4 cup butter, lemon juice, sriracha, and parsley.
  5. Add the asparagus and cook to desired tenderness. Add the chicken back to the pan and stir for another minute to reheat. Garnish the chicken and asparagus with more parsley and lemon slices. Serve.

RECIPE NOTES

If you’re substituting fine salt or table salt for the kosher salt in the recipe, use only 3/4 teaspoon or it will be too salty. Table salt is “saltier” than kosher salt or coarse sea salt. Table salt has smaller individual crystals, so more crystals of table salt than kosher or sea salt will fit into a measuring spoon.
