Hawaiian Chicken with Potatoes and Garlic Asparagus

Tasty Tuesday

It’s our second week of Tasty Tuesday and I have to tell you that this recipe is one of my husband’s absolute favorites, and I am totally okay with that because it is so easy to make! The asparagus you can make with plenty of other dinners as well, and this vegetable is in season and beautiful this time of year!

Ingredients:

1 Chicken Breast

1/2 bottle of Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade

Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper

1 tbsp Butter

Mashed Potatoes

1 Bundle of Asparagus

3-4 Cloves of Garlic, minced

3 Tbsp Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. Cut the chicken breast down the middle to make 2 thinner pieces, and then cut each piece into smaller tenders.

2. Season both sides of each piece with salt, pepper, and a light sprinkle of garlic powder (don’t over use the garlic but just add a very light amount).
