  • sheet pan
  • measuring spoons
  • aluminum foil


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5 oz each) No more than 1-inch thick
  • 4 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning (adjust amount per your own preference) 1 teaspoon per chicken breast
  • trace olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 1 bunch of fresh rosemary
  • 1 fresh lemon, sliced
  • sea salt, if desired (adjust amount per your own preference)


  • Preheat oven to 400F.  If using thick chicken breasts, pound to ½” to 1″ thickness.
  • For each serving:  Measure 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning and season both sides of chicken breast (use more or less seasoning, as desired).  Place one breast onto a 12″ by 12″ sheet of foil that has been lightly coated with olive oil or coconut oil.
  • Add 5-6 asparagus spears next to each chicken breast.  Then add a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon.  Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
  • Fold the edges of the foil over the chicken and asparagus to tightly seal. Repeat for each serving. Place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and reaches 160 degrees.  Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes before opening. Carefully open foil packet as contents will be hot!
