What Is The Best Chicken To Use

Honestly you can use any chicken you would like. The key is to make sure you fully cook your chicken. Bone-in chicken will take longer than a boneless piece of chicken.

Use a meat thermometer to ensure you reach 165 degrees internal temperature. Make sure if you have bone-in chicken your thermometer doesn’t touch a bone. Or it can give you a false reading.

Can I Change Up Vegetables In The Ingredients

I used asparagus but you could easily swap with say broccoli, sweet potatoes or any other heartier vegetable. Feel free to do root vegetables as well.

How to Make

mixing up your garlic lemon sauce

Start by spraying or lining your baking sheet. Then in a bowl you will mix up your garlic, honey Italian seasonings, butter, and salt and pepper.

Place your partially cooked chicken on a baking sheet with asparagus. Then coat with the butter mixture, toss and add lemons and cook as directed.

Meal Prepping

If you want to meal prep with leftovers go right ahead. Just save back what you don’t eat. Place in single serve containers and then take for your lunch or make for an easy dinner later in the week.

Freezing can work but your vegetables will become mushy. So if you freeze I recommend just freezing the leftover chicken. Freeze for up to 3 months.
