1. To prepare the baked chicken bites: preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Start to slice chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks and season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, red crushed chili pepper flakes, paprika, and onion powder. Marinate in a bowl while you prepare the asparagus and the sauce.

2. Wash and trim the ends of the asparagus. Drain and arrange on one side of the baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, olive oil, minced garlic, hot sauce, chicken broth (or soy sauce), and lemon juice.

4. Arrange chicken bites next to the asparagus in the sheet pan, then drizzle the chicken bites and asparagus with the lemon butter sauce.

5. Transfer to the oven and bake at 400ºF (200ºC) for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside. Remove from oven, garnish the chicken bites and asparagus with parsley, crushed chili pepper, and lemon slices and serve your garlic butter baked chicken bites and asparagus immediately. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the baked chicken bites and asparagus recipe

  • If your asparagus is thick, you can blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes, then soak in ice water to stop the cooking process. This way, asparagus will roast faster and evenly in the sheet pan. You can skip this step if you have skinny asparagus.
  • Make sure to dice chicken breast to regular size to ensure even baking.
  • One good trick is to freeze the chicken for 45 minutes to make cutting the chicken bites easier and less messy, but make sure to bring it to room temperature before baking.
  • You can customize the seasoning to your liking: try honey and mustard, taco seasoning, Indian spices, etc.

What to serve with the baked chicken bites and asparagus?

The baked chicken bites and asparagus are a complete meal on their own, but if you’re extra hungry, it goes very well over cauliflower rice. It is also excellent over regular rice, broccoli, zucchini noodles, or on top of a salad.

How and how long to keep the baked chicken bites leftovers?

These baked chicken bites and asparagus keep well in an airtight container for 2 days in the refrigerator. Reheat gently in the microwave, in the oven, or on the stove with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce. You can also freeze the baked chicken bites and asparagus for up to two months.

    This was a hit with the whole family. The baby loved the chicken and asparagus! There was plenty of lemon garlic butter left in the pan we used it as a vinaigrette for our salad. THIS IS FOREVER ON THE HOUSE MENU!
