One Pan Lemon Parmesan Chicken and Asparagus
Whenever you find a recipe that can be done in one dish then give it a try. The fact that you only need one pan is a great thing. It makes washing easier and makes cooking that much simpler. This can most definitely be added to your easy chicken breast recipes list. Chicken breast recipes are as plentiful as the rain in April. The one dish meal aspect is also crucial since we don’t have the time in the kitchen like days gone by. Anytime you can add to your easy chicken breast
recipe folder is a good time. Chelsea will blend the flavors of lemon, asparagus and panko-crusted chicken.
One dish meals are also great since you can have all the necessary food items in one place. You can have your protein, veggie and fruit all in one recipe. That is a good thing especially in times that you are rushed to make nutritious meal for you and your fellow diners. Chelsea gives you the one delicious addition to your chicken breast recipes list that now has asparagus included. Asparagus is a great and nutritious veggie that is low in fat and high in protein. It also contains a small amount of many different vitamins too long a list to mention. It is great when lightly blanched and barbequed.
Chicken breast is one of the healthiest cuts of meat due to the fact that it is very low in fat content and is a great addition to many different recipes. This one calls for the breasts to be coated with panko crumbs, that are Japanese breadcrumbs, that are different to regular breadcrumbs since they are from bread without any crust. They are crunchy in texture and even stay that way after frying or baking. Chelsea puts this whole meal onto a baking sheet and lovingly cooks them in the oven and keeps frying at bay. The beauty about this dish is in the one pan approach. Since the asparagus and chicken take the same amount of baking time this works great when needing time for other things since you only have to watch one tray and not cook everything separately. Anytime you can find a recipe like this one then try to add it to your favorites file since it doesn’t get much easier than one pan.
Whenever you decide to cook any part of the chicken always make sure you are cleaning well after your prep since chicken is a nasty bird that carries many mean and long living bacteria. Never touch another foodstuff after touching raw chicken unless you have washed your hands with soap. The most feared thing in most kitchens is cross contamination. This is when you carry a bacterium from one food to another and this can be very dangerous.If you practice great cleaning regimens then you will keep yourself and your diners safe.
