Serves: Serves 4
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, cut into 8 slices
  • 2 lemons, sliced thin
  • 12 basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1½ pounds of asparagus
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Loosen the skin from each chicken breast, but be sure to not detach it. Gently nestle the goat cheese slices under the chicken. Lay 3 basil leaves on top. Gently lay 2-3 slices of lemon on top.
  3. Brush chicken with a little bit of the olive oil. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
  4. Place chicken on a large, rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven for 25 minutes.
  5. Toss the asparagus with the remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove from oven and reduce the temperature to 375 degrees. Scatter the asparagus around the chicken. Place back in the oven and cook until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about another 15-20 minutes.
