Ingredients

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

Jacoubs Herbs & Garlic Seasoning

Preparation

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.
