One pan meals are LIFE.

Can I get an amen here??

A protein and a veggie side dish all made in a single skillet is my kind of dinner. This chicken and asparagus thing is buttery herbed goodness you need this week. All you need is about 20 minutes and you’re set my friends.

This recipe has been incredibly popular for a couple of reasons and I’ll spell them out for you:

  1. Easy cleanup.   You just can’t go wrong with only having to clean up one single pan at the end of the meal, even after making essentially two dishes. Nobody likes to spend as much time on playing cleanup crew as they spent on preparation. This dish has your back!
  2. Flavor flavor flavor. The combination of a few simple herbs and seasonings, along with minced garlic and butter, is like a party in your mouth even the pickiest of eaters can’t refuse.
  3. 30 minutes.  Yeah I said it, thirty minutes. This dish comes together so quickly you might find yourself wondering if you missed a step or two.

The process is really simple, but let me walk you through it real quick. In your favorite skillet, melt some butter, stir in garlic and herbs, then add the chicken. Brown on the first side, then flip and a keep cooking a little longer.

Next you wanna scooooooot all the chicken to the side and let it keep cooking while you cook your asparagus in the empty part of the pan with a tad more butter (don’t worry, this dish is still lightened up, there’s only 3 tablespoons butter in the whole thing).  Cook that green asparagus til tender and your chicken is cooked through.

And that’s IT. Your whole dinner, ready to go, with a whole lot of flavor and hardly any work involved.

  • 3-6 chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breasts (breasts pounded to even 1/2 inch thickness)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh herbs for garnish (optional)


  • Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan/skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and herbs and cook another minute or so until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add chicken to pan, and cook for 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook another 5-7 minutes. (Chicken should be nearly, but not completely cooked through by this point)
  • Scoot the chicken over the sides and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the empty portion of the pan. Once the butter is melted, add asparagus. Season asparagus with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, rotating throughout, for 4-6 minutes until tender and chicken is completely cooked through.
  • Serve immediately garnished with freshly cracked black pepper and fresh herbs if desired.


In place of the dried basil, oregano, and thyme, you can use about 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning.

Yum, but should the asparagus be (quickly) blanched before adding it into the skillet w/ the chicken? What size skillet did you use, which accommodated 1 lb. of asparagus and 5 chicken thighs?
This is an easy and quick main dish to make on a busy day. Since we love asparagus (and also chicken)…. I’m sure that I’ll be serving it pretty often with an easy side dish…. such as a tossed salad and Hawaiian dinner rolls. BTW, I like to sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice over my asparagus when it’s already on the serving platter. It seems to add a little ‘brightness’ to it.

    I used a 11 inch stone ware pan and had plenty of room ….
    Did turn out great and like you will be fixing it often .

    On the Asperigus, you do not need to blanch it. If the skillet is hot enough to saute it, it will be very tasty and cooked with just a little crunch left in the stalks which is fine

    5 stars
    Thanks for the lemon tip! I made this for me and the hubby.
    Let’s just say I need get back to the store to get us some more chicken!
    The spices were wonderful, (I used the dried italian seasoning).
    This would have saved me on the nutricken diet back in the day!
    I think I saw my hubby tear up a bit, haha! Thank you so much Tiffany!

      That is so great! Super excited to hear that you and your husband were able to enjoy this recipe!

I made this for last night, and it was very good! I used green beans in place of the asparagus because it was what I had on hand, but that’s the only change I made, I will definitely be making this again!

    So enjoy one pan dinners and I like this simple recipe. I would have added a baked potato also. Thank you for sharing. I just finished up the last of 4 pasta dishes with chicken/asparagus and grape tomatoes in Alfredo Roasted Garlic Sauce last night. A dish YOU might be interested in also.

    How many green beans did you use?

I love one pan recipes. It makes things so much easier. Thank you!

5 stars
I just made this and it was amazing!!

4 stars
Love it. Think maybe add just a dash of sirrach to spice it up a little.

    I love that idea! Everything tastes better with a little heat!

      5 stars
      You can always add the siracha once it’s plated, that way people can make it as hot or not as they want.

4 stars
Delicious! I cooked the asparagus separately since it won’t fit in the pan.

    You could try cutting the asparagus smaller!

Trying this weekend

Pinterest button not working. 😢



Can you used green bean instead of asparagus

    Yes! If you use fresh green beans, I would recommend steaming them first so they are at least half-way cooked because they tend to take longer to cook than asparagus. 🙂

I’d like to try adding a few capers. Excited to try this dish!!

I am going to try this but use broccoli ..can’t wait! Looks yummy!

    I used broccoli and threw in some angel hair pasta. Yummy!

Is there anything you can use in place of all of that butter? That is a lot of fat for,the meal.

    There’s only 3 tablespoons of butter, that’s not very much for four portions, but you could substitute another kind of oil like canola or vegetable, or even coconut oil if that’s something you prefer. 🙂

    butter flavored coconut oil works great as a substitute for all butter..and its healthy!!

      When using Butter flavored coconut oil would you use the same amount as the recipe calls for?

I cannot have butter do you think I could make this with pam spray?

    I would recommend vegetable or canola oil in place of the butter. 🙂

      What about olive oil?

        Crazy thing is that I used a little butter and then a touch of extra virgin olive oil.

          That’s what I did too! Delicious!

      5 stars
      first time ever attempting a Receipe on my Own and it came iut delicious. I am on a health kick. Can i use olive Oil instead and how much oil wOuld I be UsinG? Thank you, im new to cooking

        Fantastic job, Maria! I haven’t tried switching out for olive oil yet because it will definitely alter the flavor! But if you give it a try, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how it went!

    4 stars
    You could always just use chicken broth, probably about a quarter of a cup in place of the butter if you can’t do butter.

With any chicken thighs I’ve gotten and used there is always a HUGE amount of fat I have to cut out, and it’s in the crevices. It takes a goodly amount of time to clean them up. I never use chicken thighs for a “quick” meal because of this, unfortunately!Any ideas on this?

    You can actually skip the chicken thighs and use chicken tenderloins instead! Generally littler to no cleaning needed and they cook quickly. 🙂

      It would definitely be easier, but I think that tenders are going to cook at LOT faster than the asparagus… so, you’ll have to adjust accordingly..

5 stars
I found this recipe today and made it. It was very delicious…even my picky hubby licked his plate. Served it with a rainbow salad and low calorie dressing. Great healthy dinner. Added to our weekly rotation. Thank you!!!

    What is “a rainbow salad?”

Okay this wil definitely be made again in the Davis household! Satisfies even the pickiest of eaters including my gluten-free husband! I only wish I could include a picture as it turned out just as beautiful as the ones that say here! Chicken was so tender

I am going to use this only cook in Air fryer

Does anyone know of this is Whole 30 approved? It looks delicious!

    If you use ghee vs butter it would be whole30 Approved

    As long as you use ghee or clarified butter it would be whole 30 approved.

    I don’t think the butter is whole 30 approved., Use ghee instead. Other than that it looks like it.

Made this for supper. It was so easy and delicious. My husband really liked it. Know I’ll be making it again

5 stars
This was so good! Saw the video on FB today and decided to make it for dinner. The only changes were using green beans instead and since they were frozen, I made them in a separate pan and began prepared the same as the chicken. Delicious and a keeper!

I made this for dinner tonight and it was very tasty. I used bone-in thighs and it took 20 minutes longer, next time boneless!

Made it tonight for my son and I. We both liked it, but it’s missing something. Next time I’ll play around with the ingredients.

It was delicious and easy just as promised! My asparagus was thin so no need to parboil. Will definitely make again. Might try a little lemon juice next time or a few capers, but actually not needed

5 stars
This was amazing! We just had it for dinner…
Nothing left!
I did not have onion powder. Did not substitute it.
No fresh herbs. Used mixed dried garden herbs.
In a word: A-May-Zing!
I made an extra German cucumber salad to complete the meal.
5 stars for 1-pan simplicity!

    I do not use onion powder, need to watch my sodium and prefer fresh onion. When I make this will use fresh onion.

      There is a difference between onion powder and onionsalt.

      4 stars
      The recipe calls for onion powder, not onion

5 stars
Really good. I used fresh herbs, since I have them growing outside, and a LOT more garlic. Served it with quinoa with some craisins and some chutney mixed in. Yummy!

I’d love to print the recipe, but the print option doesn’t seem to be working, just shows a blank page.

    Try copying and pasting recipe in word processor. Save and have on the computer or print of for your own recipe book. Have done several this way. Also can put into the cloud for easy acess when traveling to second home

I just made this for dinner tonight and am substituting green beans for the asparagus later…so easy and smells wonderful. I made it early so that the chicken can be kept on low and be tender.

5 stars
Just made this and it was delicious!!! So easy and tasty. Always on the look out for something simple, healthy, and flavorful. Will definitely make again! 🙂

    Hi Samantha! So glad to hear you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for the feedback!

5 stars
Next time I will steam the asparagus a little and then add them to the pan for finishing at the end. I used a big skillet but there just wasn’t enough room – the asparagus took too long to cook and wasn’t quite done enough. That being said, my BF – who loves chicken thighs – said this was one of the best things I’ve ever made. I will be making this often, and it would be a good dish to make for company.

This probably goes without saying unless you’re a dumbass like me: have the garlic and dry ingredients premeasured out and ready to stir in at once … I added in the garlic and starting measuring out the herbs one by one, and that did not work out too well, although I somehow managed to recover without overdoing the garlic.

    i stacked the thighs on one side, so there would be room – and i added a lid so it would help steam the asparagus and chicken – so good and worked perfectly. i’ve made it twice this way and both kids devour it. i think cooking the veggies seperate will change the flavor and i love it too much to change it

5 stars
Making this tonight and yay for butter! This makes a great Keto friendly meal. I’m also adding mushrooms because they are on hand. I have pencil thin asparagus — can not wait! Thanks for the dish!

I made this last night and my husband and I loved it! Very easy and delicious!

5 stars
I’ve made this twice now. Today was farm market fresh asparagus & shitake mushrooms. Sauteed the mushrooms a little. Added to pan when I added the asparagus. Covered & it basically steamed the asparagus until semi crispy. Made real wild rice to serve with. So yummy!!

I have no onion powder, have seen someone else didn’t and didn’t substitute so I’ll just do that. If I’m only doing 2 breasts – would I half all the butter and herbs and garlic?

    Hi! You don’t have to half any of the ingredients for only doing 2 chicken breasts. 🙂

Can this recipe be made in the oven instead of stovetop?

I made this last night. Needless to say there were no leftovers! I would say though you should transfer to plate as soon as done. I left it in the pan while I served the kids and the asparagus got soft and soggy. anyway it was still delicious. I do have a question.. Can you make this with pork chops too? Thank you

    Hi Janet! I’ve never made this recipe with pork chops, but I bet it would be delicious!

Will try this easy recipe for dinner tonight. Looks delish! Will add mushrooms for sure.

5 stars
I would love to try this tonight! Looks Delish! But, does anyone know the nutritional value of this meal? Calories, Protein, Carbs, Sodium, Etc.

    I don’t have the nutritional info on hand for this recipe, but MyFitnessPal has an awesome tool that calculates all that out for you! Here’s the link: It’s free and all you do it copy and paste the recipe URL into the Recipe Importer and it will tell you everything you need to know! 🙂

Made this tonight and it was easy to do and so good! We will be adding this to dishes we cook often. I will be looking at your other recipes!

Delicious!!! I added colorful baby potatoes along with the asparagus. My husband really likes this! He’s always asking for something different for dinner that is flavorful!! Can’t wait to make this again for a get together dinner with our friends.

5 stars
Just made this meal for dinner and it was a hit! Super delicious and full of flavor. I stayed true to the recipe and it was extremely simple. Thank you.

5 stars
I tried this tonight and it was delicious! It was quick, easy, and yummy. This was my first time cooking asparagus ever and I got many compliements. Thank you!!

I made this and it was great! I wanted to make egg noodles with it but I’m just not sure how I would do the sauce. I thought maybe the butter and the dry herbs that was used for the chicken and asparagus.. I don’t know please help:(

5 stars
Made this exactly per recipe and thought it was wonderful!!! I would like to make it again, but with chicken breasts (for 3 people). In terms of weight, how many lbs of skinless / boneless breasts would be comparable to the 6 thighs.

Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe.

I added fresh lemon juice to it yummy

5 stars
Amazing. Even my picky 2 year old and husband enjoyed this. I can’t do onion powder so I added fresh onion in with the garlic. So delicious!

5 stars
Delish! So yummy. It was very quick and easy. I put on some jasmine rice at the same time and it was ready together. Brilliant! ?

Oh my goodness. This recipe was so easy, so fresh, and so delicious. I loved how quickly the asparagus cooked and, I too, did add a little lemon juice. Thank you so much for another recipe that I will be cooking often.

4 stars
Great recipe! Made this tonight except substituted Green beans. Great flavor. My only question, it seems in the video you drizzled some of the juices over the chicken. I did not have any left over – did you make a sauce? Thanks for the recipe!

Hi! I live alone and work crazy hours and sometimes don’t get home till very late. Would this keep good for a few days in the fridge? I enjoy having 2-3 different meals already cooked and ready to pop in a microwave. That way I have something healthy to grab for lunch before work or dinner when I come home.

Was delish!!! Would great if you had nutritional info!

so glad you sheet-panned this, have a traditional recipe of this that takes 3 times the cookware and twice the time, so thank you!

this was Quick, easy and DELICIOUS!

The picture looks like it’s bone-in thighs. Is this the case? Or are they boneless? I picked up a pkg of boneless thighs and they look HUGE!! Thanks!

    Hi Mary Elizabeth – I used boneless thighs in the recipe and they turned out great! You could easily sub for a pretty much any other cut of chicken tho.

    Hi Athena- My Fitness Pal has a great tool that will provide nutritional information for any recipe on the internet.

it was a hit!! And I was told I can make it again and again..and was instructed I need to use skin-on thighs! I seasoned with s&p, italian seasoning and lots of garlic (preference).it was great being able to cook it in one skillet! I made garlic toast along with it and we were able to soak up some of the drippings left on the plate.Wonderful recipe!

    You had me salivating at garlic toast dipped in the extra drippings!

I never know when The chicken is done. 😤😤☹☹

    I recommend investing in a digital meat thermometer. They’re relatively inexpensive and take the guesswork out if the chicken being done. (I used to always end up with a bunch if cut pieces of chicken, so I know what you mean about not knowing!)

    This recipe is great! I don’t normally eat asparagus, but I cooked it for someone who loves it, and I really enjoyed everything about this. Made it with a side of garlic/parmesan mashed potatoes.

This Dish is Amazing!

Wow! I had two ingredients in the fridge—chicken and asparagus. After a long week, I just wanted to prepare something simple for my boyfriend and me so he wouldn’t suggest going out to eat. So, I googled those two ingredients and this delicious recipe pops up.

A couple of adjustments I made: I cook chicken every week, so I substituted ghee for butter to cook at a higher temperature without burning or losing flavor. I also used all dry seasonings and went easy on the salt for my palette. I sliced the asparagus down the center, lengthwise; they were huge! They cooked thoroughly and got coated in yummy ghee. Plus, they looked really pretty. If you have thin asparagus, keeping them whole is best.

I should have taken a picture, the dish turned out beautiful! Thank you for this great recipe! I’m definitely going to keep it in my mental recipe book 🙂

    Great idea to slice your thick asparagus! Thanks for sharing! So happy that you loved it!

Can you make this use canned asparagus in THIS and garlic powder instead of minced garlic?

    Hi Tamarrah- Yes, you can use those if that is what you have on hand! I do highly recommend fresh asparagus and minced garlic though. I hope that you love it with those adjustments! Definitely let me know! 🙂

thanks tiffany! My son and grandson loved it, so it will go in our regular rotation for dinner. I too used green beans because that’s what I had. I did add a little bit of chicken broth at the end. served it over egg noodles with a salad on the side.

Just let me know how we can accomplish this task. Let me go find hope for this life

Can this recIpe be Prepared in the oven and if so how?

    Sure! Bake it at 375 for 15-20 minutes for just the chicken, then add the asparagus and cook another 10-15 minutes until chicken is cooked through and asparagus is tender. I would cover for the first part of cooking the chicken then uncover it when you add the asparagus! I hope you love it!

Instead of onion powder, I added 1/4 chopped onion. I also added fresh rosemary, Cilantro, white wine and 1 fresh lemon. It was very simple, yet delicious

    Thanks for your input, Christa! Excited to hear that you enjoyed this recipe! It is a definite favorite here in our house!

There’s some humor which works, I guess many Eastwood movies have humor. In case anyone is curious about language, there isn’t a lot like Gran Torino. Cursing doesn’t bother me.

I need how to seasoned my food

Will tr y receipts

what is considered dried herbs?

    Any of the dried herbs it calls for would be fantastic fresh on top as a garnish! This recipe is so versatile that you could really use any fresh herb that you prefer!

I made this for the first time lastWeak and my family is already asking for it again it’s about time that a recipe is just as easy and just as delicious as it says it is it will definitely be a staple in our family now

I can’t believe how great this tastes compared to the effort and only One pan to clean. It’s a weeknight Savior for sure! Bonus is i almost always have everything needed to make it besides the asparagus.

I can’t believe how great this tastes compared to the effort…plus only One pan to clean. It’s a weeknight Savior for sure! Bonus is i almost always have everything needed to make it besides the asparagus. I Only cook the chicken about 4min each side then add the asparagus so they are a bit softer.

    I am super excited to hear that you loved this dish so much, Chris! I, too, usually have the ingredients on hand for this except for the asparagus… but often times have green beans on hand and use those instead!

This was SEriously one of the best meals I’ve had and it had Simple prep and ingredients. I followed the recipe, REmoved the CHIcken and veg, and then deglazed THe pan with white cooking wine and MIXed it with some heavy cream i had in the fridge. The meal had enough flavor without my sauce but it made the Rice to Die for. Restaurant quality meal at home for cheap. Thank you!

    Sounds like you did a fantastic job, Cam! Thanks for your input! Excited to hear that you enjoyed this recipe so much 🙂

Looking to make this for tomorrow nights dinner. Trying to do low carb, so out of curiosity do you know what the carb count would be if I skipped the potatoes? I think my math shows about 8-10g but wasn’t sure if you knew? If not I still plan to make it, shouldn’t be too high. Thanks!

    Hi Nova-I don’t know off the top of my head. You could try using MyFitnessPal tho.. they have a great tool where you can input a recipe URL into and it will calculate all of that for you… that way you can see what you need to do with the carb count!

Are you supposed to use boneless chicken thighs?

    I recommend using boneless!

    I used the boneless thighs. I also added baked sweet potatoS to our plates and this made for a fabulous meal for us newlyweds!!!

I made this toNight and my HUSBAND and i COULDN’T stop eating it. We have leftovers thank goodness TO ENJOY for tomOrrow, easy dinner and Clean up ESPECIALLY for our busy faMily; it makes it easier on me When dinner prep and cook is simple.

Great dinner! I wish. I could share picture, chicken came out a pretty golden brown, asparagus wasn’t hard or Chewie, the flavor PERMITRATED the asparagus AND THE ASPARAGUS WASNT greasy.
Simple and quick to Make and it’s a crowd pleaser. Picky eaters in my house didn’t hesitate eating it the second it was put on the table for VAN Y

I am making this on Thursday for my fiance and myself. I got brocolli to sub in for asparagus. and have some mushrooms on hand that I want to add. I also want to add in some cooked pasta for a starch. I am going to see how this turns out with those additions.

    Sounds fantastic! I hope it turns out great for you, Tara!

Bloody great recipe. Super easy and super tasty. I used fresh herbs rather than dried and served it with some risoni. 10/10!

    Great job!!! Fresh herbs always add that extra delicious kick!

Just made this tonight; it was excellent! My pan wasn’t big enough to move the chicken over, so I turned the chicken over one more time, put the asparagus on top and covered the pan to steam the asparagus and finish cooking the chicken. I also squeezed a full lemon on top as the asparagus cooked — added to the tenderness of the chicken and also brightened the asparagus. What a great recipe — thank you!

    Nice job, Elizabeth! Way to improvise 🙂

I USED CHICKEN BREASTS POUNDED TO A 1/2 INCH AND This was delicious! So nice to have such a quick dinner that turns out so well. It looks and tastes like I spent a lot of time on it!

And no cean up mess

    Happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe, Dean!

Hi! Would this recipe work in a crockpot (or Slowcooker?) What would I need to change? My husband, Dave absolutely loves chicken and veggies like this, but I cant stand long to cook–hence mostly crockpot recipes for me! Thank you for getting back to me via email!

    This is actually pretty quick to make on the stove top- it definitely gets the best flavor that way as well. I’m sure it’s possible to make it in the slow cooker.. unfortunately I don’t have much input on that right now because I’ve never prepared this recipe that way!

This sounds amazing (and almost suspiciously easy haha), however I have a couple questions: do the chicken thighs need to be boneless? (another of your one-pan recipes specified boneless so I wanted to be sure). And as for the pan, since the recipe uses butter, is it best to use a non-stick pan? And your use of the word “dried” for the seasoning, is that simply meant to say “the stuff you have in your seasoning cabinet is fine”? (haha.) finally, “rotating throughout”: does that refer to moving around both the asparagus and the chicken? If so, does that mean turn everything over or just stir it all around? I know, I must sound like a cooking neophyte, but I just don’t have the instincts my fiancé does when it comes to cooking so I like to know exactly what to do to get it right. Thanks for your help!

    oddly enough- it is THAT easy! Yes, just the typical dried seasonings in your spice cabinet work great! Rotating throughout, definitely turn your chicken over so it doesn’t burn. I personally think boneless turns out best for this recipe 🙂

Made it for dinner tonight with roast potatoes and love it!

Wow yummy

Mmm! This was a really good recipe. My family loved it, and we will definitely make again! We used a standard-sized pan and chicken breasts (not thighs) to make this recipe. Thank you!

    Happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed this recipe!

This article is great. I like it very much. Thank you!

I used my new dutch oven pan for this recipe and it turned out wonderfully. I loved that the asparagus still had some crunch to it and the chicken thighs were moist and tender. for ease used an italian blend spice grinder. Great weeknight meal that tastes like a weekend meal (know what I mean?). Thanks for sharing this.

    I totally know what you mean! YES!

Nice dish

This is really nice
