As I embark on my new professional endeavor, Freed Fit, I am constantly creating meals that hit three marks
- Can be made in 30 minutes or less
- Nutrient dense
As a bonus, I try to create meals with one pot or one pan, so cleanup is just as easy as the pre-work! Check out this sample weekly meal plan I created for a client, including this super simple dinner recipe!
SHEET PAN CHICKEN, ASPARAGUS, AND CHERRY TOMATOES
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- Seasonings to taste – Himalayan sea salt, garlic powder, and chili powder
- 1 tbsp. Manuka honey
- 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
- 1 bunch of asparagus; washed and woody stems removed
- ½ container sliced cherry tomatoes
- 1 lemon, cut into thin slices
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place the chicken breasts evenly on the baking sheet and set aside.
- Whisk together the EVOO, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice and seasonings and pour half the mixture over the chicken
- Place the pan in the oven and cook until the chicken is almost done about 20 minutes. Add the remaining mixture.
- When the chicken is almost done, remove it from the oven, and set the oven to broil. Place the asparagus around the edges. Pour any of the remaining sauce from the asparagus over the pan. Place a few lemon slices in and around the chicken and asparagus.
- Broil the chicken and asparagus until the asparagus is crisp-tender and the chicken golden brown and no longer pink
in the center, (about 10 minutes).
