GARLIC BUTTER CHICKEN BITES WITH LEMON ASPARAGUS

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized
    chunks
  • 2 bunch of asparagus, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or Herbes de Provence
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce, optional (we used Sriracha)
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) low-sodium chicken broth
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • Crushed red chili pepper flakes, optional
  • Slices of lemon, for garnish

For the chicken seasoning: 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

DIRECTIONS 

  1.  To prepare the chicken bites recipe and asparagus in the
    garlic butter sauce: Start to slice chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks and
    season with salt, pepper, and onion powder. Let sit in a shallow plate while
    you prepare the asparagus.
  2.  

     Wash and trim the ends of the asparagus, then blanch them
    in boiling water for 2 minutes then soak in ice water to stop the cooking
    asparagus. This way they will cook asparagus faster and evenly in the skillet.
    You can skip this step if you have very thin asparagus. Drain and set aside.

  3.  

     Heat half butter and olive oil in a large cast-iron
    skillet over medium-low heat. Gently stir-fry the chicken bites on all sides
    until golden brown. Lower the heat, add 1 teaspoon minced garlic and Italian
    seasoning and stir and cook with chicken bites until fragrant. Remove the
    chicken bites from the skillet and set aside to a plate. You might have to work
    in batches to avoid crowding the pan and have steamed chicken bites instead of
    browned.

  4.  

     In the same skillet over medium-high, add minced garlic
    then deglaze with chicken broth (or wine). Bring to a simmer and allow to
    reduce to half the volume. Add remaining butter, lemon juice, hot sauce,
    parsley. Give a quick stir to combine.

  5.  

     Add the blanched asparagus and toss for 2 minutes to cook
    it up. Add the sauteed chicken bites back to the pan and stir for another
    minute to reheat. Garnish the chicken and asparagus with more parsley, crushed
    chili pepper, and lemon slices and serve your garlic butter chicken bites and
    asparagus immediately. Enjoy!
