Every spring, like clockwork, and usually around Easter, I always want to make recipes my Nonnie might have made. As a kid, my family would spend Easter with my grandparents at their home in south Florida. They moved around a bit, but I spent most of my time in Jupiter, which is one of my favorite places.

I’m always missing my grandma, but especially around holidays like Easter when we’d usually spend time with them. When it came to Easter entertaining, and serving my family in general, Nonnie kept meals simple yet still delicious. And played up all the extras. She would even dress up as the easter bunny!

The thing to know about Nonnie is that she loved to cook, but only simple dishes that she just knew everyone would love.

The first night we would spend with them over spring break, she’d usually make, chicken and rice with asparagus. Or maybe a nice piece of beef with potatoes and asparagus.

She used to love to use that honey balsamic dressing they sell at the store. She would bake up the chicken in the dressing, and at the same time, she’d be roasting potatoes and asparagus.

Oh, and warming bread too. Nonnie ALWAYS served warm bread with salted butter for every single meal. It was her favorite…we always knew we would love my Nonnie’s meals.

Anyway, she inspires me every spring to cook some kind of chicken and asparagus dinner. And wow, I just adore this year’s recipe. It’s just what she would love. I know it!

Now the details

The first thing I like to do is roast the potatoes since they take longer to cook than the chicken. Simply olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then throw on the asparagus too.

For the chicken, I like to use a mix of skinless, boneless, chicken thighs and breasts. Most of the people I feed regularly prefer chicken breasts, but I like to toss in a couple of boneless thighs for added flavor. Plus, Creighton loves them. Use what you like best, all thighs, all breasts, or a mix.

The seasoning is simple, lots of dried or fresh thyme, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, sesame seeds, a touch of paprika, chili flakes, and then of course, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Once the potatoes have cooked a bit, add the chicken to the sheet pan. If the asparagus is looking cooked, pull it off the pan to avoid overcooking it. If it’s not ready just yet, keep an eye on it towards the end.

The dressing

A simple mix of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon, honey, chili flakes, and salt. I add lots of fresh basil and a pinch of fresh thyme too.

Then add the olives, which give this a yummy saltiness. Trust me, the olives make the chicken.

To finish, grab a block of feta cheese and break it over the chicken, then take the dressing and spoon it over the entire sheet pan. So delicious you guys!

I love to serve this with buttered bread on the side. Just as Nonnie would! It’s perfect for scooping and soaking up all the yummy sauce and flavor on the pan.

    This came together nicely for a weeknight dinner but I can see making it for a dinner party as well because the flavours are amazing and it looks beautiful too.

    1. Hey Caroline,
      Wonderful!! I appreciate you giving this recipe a try and your comment, so glad to hear it turned out nicely for you! xT

    1. Hi Shelley,

    This was so flavorful and easy! This will be added on regular rotation! I love recipes with olives! Delish!

  3. When I go to print this recipe, the platform your website uses takes it to 4 pages with VERY wide margins. Is this just me?

    1. Hey Jill,
      I just gave this a try…if you press print on the recipe card and then print on the Jupiter page, it should only print on 2 pages with normal margins. I hope this helps! xT

    Your creative approach to cooking is truly inspiring! And this recipe is no different. Normally, I would think that this recipe would not be my husband’s taste. But he loves asparagus and is trying to eat mostly lean meat, so I gave it a try. It is now a staple that appears on our table once a month. We aren’t olive eaters, so I don’t add those. But the rest of the ingredients provide a zesty and delicious meal that mirror something you would order at a fine restaurant. Kudos for doing it once more, Tieghan!

    1. Aww, thank you so much for your kind message Nikki, this really means so much to me! I am so glad to hear this dish turned out well for you, thanks for making it! xT

    This was incredible! It fed 3 adults with second helpings and we have plenty of left overs which, is perfect! The dressing at the end put it over the top. Thank you Tieghan!

    Wow!! I made this tonight for my son (20 yr old) and me and we both loved it! I sadly didn’t have any fresh herbs so I used dried but it was still so unbelievably flavorful and delicious! We can’t wait to get some fresh herbs and make it again! Thank you so much!!

    I recently made this easy, delicious chicken dish. It’s definitely a “do-over” as my hubby says. I’ll make it for guests too. It’s now one of our favorites!

    I just made this recipe tonight and it’s absolutely incredible!! I unfortunately did not have asparagus or green olives so I used broccoli and black olives and still did the trick! This dish was so flavorful and will most definitely be making again!

    Did this last night and its a keeper! So easy! And SO much flavor! I used broccoli and tomatoes instead of the asparagus and regular potatoes cut up in pieces as that was what I had on hand. I added a few extra seasonings to the veggies. I would cook veggies and chicken separate next time as my chicken got a little burnt while waiting on the veggies to finish roasting I think it may be because they were thin but cooking it separately would give me more control with cooking times and keeping the chicken juicy. The marinade by itself is a keeper and the dressing also works for other stuff! I would use it again over a salmon for example! Thanks for another amazing recipe 🙂

    1. Thank you so so much for giving this recipe a try! And thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a great day! xT
