  • 1 bunch asparagus (chopped into thirds)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup half and half


  1. In a medium hot skillet, saute the asparagus in olive oil until it is soft and tender.
  2. Set the asparagus aside and cook the chicken in the skillet until the centers are no longer pink (I cut mine into strips)
  3. Set the chicken aside and saute the onions until tender and onions begin to go clear.
  4. In a small bowl, combine chicken broth, lemon juice, pepper flakes, and garlic.
  5. Pour the mixture over the onions and add the half and half.
  6. Place the chicken and asparagus back into the pan and continue mixing and rotating chicken breasts until they are fully covered and juicy.
  7. Serve warm!
