All I can say about this recipe is amazing. It was easy to make and it was full flavor. After making this recipe I craved it for day after but sadly never had asparagus after. This recipe is healthy and its a must try! I would also suggest replacing rice with quinoa which I think would also taste good.

Ingredients

Serves 4

4 (4-oz each) skinless, boneless, chicken breasts (You can also use 4 (4-oz) skinless fish fillets instead of chicken in this recipe.)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp poultry seasoning

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 red bell pepper, stem removed, seeded, and diced

1/2 lb asparagus, cut into 1-in pieces

1 tsp lemon zest

1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock or water

2 cups cooked brown rice or whole wheat couscous

Directions

Rinse the chicken under cold water. Pat the pieces dry with food-safe paper towels. Season the chicken with the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.

In a large, non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet. Cook the chicken about 5 minutes. If you are using fish, adjust the cooking time to 3 to 4 minutes per side. Turn the pieces over and cook for another 5 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in the garlic and the red pepper. Add the asparagus and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the zest and the chicken stock or water and turn the heat to low. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately over hot rice or couscous
