Lemon Chicken Asparagus Recipe

Step 1

In med. bowl, combine chicken, lemon juice, 1/2 of the salt, pepper and lemon zest. Toss to mix. On a large flat plate, coat the chicken with the seasoned bread crumbs. Spray Pam on a non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown outside and white throughout (but still juicy--about 5-7 minutes). Place chicken on a serving platter.

Step 2

Meanwhile, steam the fresh asparagus for approx. 5-7 minutes. When done, season the asparagus with the remaining lemon zest and salt and pepper. Divide asparagus into 4 bundles. Wrap each asparagus bundle with a slice of the turkey "ham" and place on top of chicken. Garnish with lemon slices.
