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.

  1. Oops! Just read the “NOTES” about
    bone-in vs boneless! SO sorry to have bothered you!!!!

  2. Hi Tieghan! Quick question:
    Recipe says skinless, but not ‘boneless’ thighs or breasts. But, on the video, as you cut into the meat, it appears boneless! Before I shop for ingredients and because it bears on cooking time—with or without bones, please?
    Thanks so much, in advance, for your time(& patience!). This looks PHENOMENAL!!!
    Warm regards,

    1. Hi Marcie,
      This recipe will work with boneless or bone in chicken, totally up to you:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Friday! xT

    Amazing flavors! I couldn’t quite figure out what this was going to taste like when preparing everything, but after the first bite I was hooked! I didn’t have asparagus so I subbed for broccoli and it was great. Looking forward to having it again with the asparagus and olives. Thank you, Tieghan, for another delicious meal.

    So good and so easy. I used large potatoes because thats what I had and just cut them into small chunks. I used smoked paprika but would use sweet paprika or cut the smoked paprika to half. Both my boys and my husband loved it -my husband HATES balsamic vinegar and he loved it. I didn’t tell him of course. and I never will. I love these sheet pan meals. They make life so easy

    1. Hey Lee,
      Wonderful!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks a lot for making it! Have a great weekend:)

  6. would it be ok to prepare the potatoes and chicken ahead of time and just pop them in the oven when I’m ready?

    1. Hey Vanessa,
      Totally, that would work well for you! Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this dish! xT

    This recipe exceeded all expectations I had!! I used chicken breast because I didn’t thaw my thighs in time and had low expectations since I eat chicken nearly everyday. From the marinade to the honey drizzle and the easy to make dressing though, the perfectly balanced bite of an olive with some chicken, potato, and asparagus had me craving this meal all week until it was gone!! Will be making many more times with no alterations!!
