Quick and Easy: 5 Ingredient Lemon Chicken With Asparagus

Finding a quick and easy solution for tonight’s dinner menu may be as simple as looking at the existing items in your inventory. It is often said that simplicity is best; I certainly find this to be a profound truth when cooking is involved. What I love most about this recipe is that it requires so little preparation. It truly is as simple as coating the chicken with flour and seasoning and sautéing everything up to heavenly perfection. Once the chicken has reached a golden-brown state, put it on display on a lovely platter and enjoy the fruits of your not-so-much labor.
