These chicken and asparagus recipes combine two of my favorite savory foods.
When it comes to protein, I’ll choose chicken over other meats 9 times out of 10.
I also love asparagus. There’s nothing tastier than crisp, fresh asparagus. Grill or bake it with garlic and parmesan, and… *chef’s kiss,* it’s perfect.
So yes, chicken and asparagus recipes are well-loved in my house. I could eat something off this list six days a week and never get bored.
If you’re looking for nutritious, delicious dinner options, this is the list for you, too! Let’s check it out!
1. Creamy Lemon Garlic Chicken with Asparagus
Succulent, well-seasoned chicken. Crisp, garlicky asparagus. And a rich, creamy, zesty sauce to cover it all. What more could you want out of dinner?
Oh, you need something low-carb, too? Well, guess what? This dish has just seven net carbs per serving, as well!
I’m not going to say it’s the perfect meal, but if the shoe fits…
2. Garlic Butter Chicken Bites with Lemon Asparagus
This chicken and asparagus meal is similar to the one above. It’s bright, earthy, and just a little spicy. However, you won’t cover it in a thick sauce.
Instead, you use fragrant and flavorful garlic butter. It infuses every bite with a rich, garlicky flavor that’s out of this world.
3. Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken Breast
The first time I tried this dish, I was in a tiny hole-in-the-wall diner in Alabama. I saw it on the menu, and I had to have it.
After a single bite, I knew I’d be searching for the recipe when I returned home.
I did, and here it is. The chicken is juicy and tender, but that’s not all.
You’ll stuff it with gooey mozzarella and crunchy asparagus.
Add the spices and seasonings, and you have a little taste of heaven on your hands.
4. One-Pan Honey Lemon Chicken Asparagus
This sweet-n-tangy one-pot meal is the ideal choice for dinner.
You simply season everything and throw it on a pan. Top everything with the honey-lemon sauce and bake it.
It doesn’t get much more convenient and mess-free than that. I like to serve this with a side of garlic mashed potatoes.
However, it’s a pretty complete meal all by itself.
5. 5-Ingredient Lemon Chicken with Asparagus
Looking for something brighter and zestier?
Give this delightful lemon chicken a try. It’s light, bright, and full of flavor. Plus, it smells as good as it tastes.
It’s saucy, succulent, and spectacular. You’ll love it!
6. Crispy Garlic Chicken with Asparagus
Are you the kind of person who prefers crispy chicken? This crunchy, golden-skinned bird is the one for you! It’s buttery, garlicky, and herb-flavored.
And the only thing better than the asparagus’ crunch is the chicken’s crispy skin.
You can whip this one up with fewer than ten ingredients in just 25 minutes.
It’s delicious, southern-style fried chicken, only better.
7. Chicken Asparagus Stir-Fry
Other than the sauce, this stir-fry uses just three ingredients. Asparagus, chicken, and oil.
Most of the work goes into making the sweet and savory stir-fry sauce.
And luckily, that’s simple to do, too. It uses five ingredients and features the robust flavors of honey, garlic, and soy sauce.
Serve it over a bed of rice for a complete meal. You can use cauliflower rice to keep it low-carb.
8. Creamy Chicken and Asparagus Pasta
This 30-minute pasta dish is way too decadent to be so simple. The chunky pieces of chicken and creamy sauce are incredible.
Add in spices, asparagus, and the rest, and you’ve got a five-star meal! It’s creamy, cheesy, and insanely filling.
Not to steal a catchphrase, but it’s truly good til the last bite.
9. Creamy Lemon Chicken and Asparagus Soup
Chicken and asparagus even taste great in soup. This thick, creamy soup is wonderfully flavorful.
Additionally, it’s perfect for the cooler months of the year.
It’s a comforting, stick-to-your-ribs soup that everyone will appreciate. It’s also quick and easy to make.
Unlike some soups and stews, you won’t leave this one in a Crockpot all day.
Instead, you’ll whip it up on the stove in 30 minutes flat. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
10. Grilled Chicken Asparagus Salad
This salad is a great option if you’re looking for a filling, nutrient-packed lunch.
It takes a little time to pull together (45 minutes), but it’s well worth it.
You’ll start with a bed of asparagus and shallots. To that, you add tender chicken, various herbs, and tangy goat cheese.
Top it off with the zesty homemade dressing, and you’re all set.
11. Grilled Chicken and Asparagus White Pizza
Look. I’m going to put this simply. I am here for white pizza. I know it’s not everyone’s slice of pie, but I think it’s heavenly.
It’s so gooey and cheesy, rich and indulgent. White pizza is the stuff. Usually, I top mine with spinach and mushrooms.
However, this one uses chicken, asparagus, and mushrooms instead. I have to say, it’s every bit as good as the spinach variety. (Maybe even better.)
12. Creamy Asparagus and Chicken Sandwich
This chunky, hearty sandwich is downright Italian! Between the parmesan and ricotta, it doesn’t have much choice.
It’s a delectable sandwich with plenty of cheese and garden-fresh flavors. Plus, it takes just 30 minutes to pull together.
Enjoy this refreshing lunch on a hot summer day.
13. One-Pot Creamy Spinach and Asparagus Casserole
This creamy, cheesy one-pot meal is comfort food at its finest.
It’s a savory masterpiece featuring three different cheeses, veggies, herbs, and more.
The gooey mess will practically melt in your mouth. You barely need to chew!
And you can have the whole thing ready in half an hour from start to finish.
It’s quick to make, quicker to eat, and cleanup is a breeze. You’ll want to make this one part of your regular weekly rotation.
14. Chicken Asparagus Pasta Bake
This herb pasta bake is creamy and cheesy, with a crispy panko topping.
Between the pasta, chicken, and asparagus, it’s hard to know where to start.
Everything about this dish is scrumptious, and it looks as good as it tastes. It’ll also make your whole house smell amazing while cooking it.
Serve it with some buttery garlic bread. Your whole family will thank you for it. They’ll probably even come back for seconds.
15. Sheet Pan Chicken and Asparagus
This tasty, well-seasoned meal is a study in simplicity. If you want a dinner that takes practically no hands-on work, this recipe is for you.
You’ll simply season everything, throw it on a pan, and add your toppings.
Then, bake the sheet pan for about 20 minutes until everything’s ready.
Who knew easy dinners could taste so good?
16. Lemon Chicken and Asparagus Foil Packs
These foil packs are similar to the sheet pan recipe above. The difference, of course, is that you’ll wrap each serving in individual foil packs.
My grandma used to call these “lazy man’s dinners.”
Simply season, wrap, and bake (or grill). You’ll have a complete, nutritious meal in just 30 minutes.
17. Chez LA Chicken and Asparagus Lasagna
This lasagna probably looks slightly different from what you’re used to eating. Fortunately, it tastes just as fantastic as the “typical” version.
It’s full of delicious chicken and cheese. However, there are also veggies and a robust, flavorful sauce.
If you need a hearty dinner the whole family will love, give this one a try.
