1. Arrange oven shelf to the middle of your oven. Preheat your oven to 425ºF (220ºC). Mix the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl or shallow plate.

2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or baking paper; lightly oil with olive oil or cooking spray. Arrange chicken upside-down on one side the baking sheet. Sprinkle with the seasoning on both sides, covering as much of the surface as you can.

3. Arrange the asparagus on the other side of the baking sheet and drizzle with lemon juice.

4. Place diced butter over chicken and asparagus. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is golden, with an internal temperature of 165ºF (75ºC) using a meat thermometer.

5. Remove from oven and garnish with lemon slices and fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Serve the oven baked chicken immediately. Enjoy!

Recipe notes:

  • You can also use chicken breasts for this recipe. If your breasts are quite large eg 8oz (250g) each, cut them in half horizontally to form 2 thin fillets. Season and use following the remaining of the recipe.
  • If you like your asparagus crunchier, bake chicken for 10 minutes, then add asparagus to the baking sheet and finish cooking until chicken is done.
