  • 1 8oz chicken breast - cut to bite size pieces

  • 1 bundle (1 lb ish) asparagus spears

  • 1 cup sodium free chicken broth

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tsp each, rosemary, thyme, oregano, marjoram and savory.

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through (160°F internal temperature), about 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.

  2. Add garlic and spices to the pan. Cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.

  3. Deglaze the pan with broth. Bring to a simmer, then stir in remaining butter.

  4. Add asparagus and lemon juice. Toss to coat and cook for 5-7 minutes, until asparagus is tender-crisp.

  5. Return chicken to the pan. Toss to coat in the sauce and heat through for another minute.

  6. Serve immediately. Enjoy with rice, pasta, or your favorite side dish.


  • For a richer flavor, use ghee instead of butter.

  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a touch of heat.

  • Substitute chicken thighs for a more flavorful and slightly fattier option.

  • Serve with a sprinkle of fresh herbs like parsley or dill for added freshness.

This recipe is a great way to enjoy a delicious and healthy meal without sacrificing flavor or time. Give it a try and see for yourself!
