New recipe, trying asparagus! "kitchen diva's lemon chicken with asparagus"

We tried this recipe for lunch today and I have to say it was absolutely delicious. Believe it or not I have never tried asparagus before and neither have the children, and we loved it, in this recipe. Here it is

The Kitchen Diva’s Lemon Chicken with Asparagus

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 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

4 garlic cloves, chopped

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

1/2 pound asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock or water

2 cups cooked brown rice or whole wheat couscous


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.

It has been a hard year:(

Today marks the one year mark of finding out our little baby Haven Joy was not longer alive at almost 5 months pregnant. It has been so hard, but God is helping me through this. I know when God is ready I will have another baby and everything I have gone through will be worth it(not that losing a baby is something I would ever want to happen again). I am very blessed though, I have 3 healthy children that I am very thankful that God has blessed me with:)

On another note my sweet little boy broke his nose on Superbowl Sunday. He was trying to get his hat from Haley and she hit him in the nose with the back of her head. Poor little boy, but we went to the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor and they said every thing would be okay. I hope everyone has a blessed week, and I hope to blog more!!!!!!!
