Lemon Thyme Chicken w/ Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

This meal is low carb and guess what else, it's keto-friendly! You can’t go wrong with this recipe. You probably already have all the ingredients at home, yep, go check your freezer before you go out and buy more chicken. I always find packs of chicken in the freezer that I completely forgot about, grab it out the freezer early so you can get it thawed out. This is definitely a delicious and easy meal.

What you'll need:

  • 6 to 8 pieces of bone-in chicken thighs

  • 2 tsp of dried thyme

  • 1/2 tsp of garlic salt

  • Black pepper

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2-3 tablespoons butter

  • 4-5 fresh thyme sprigs

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1-2 lemons, thinly sliced

  • 1-3 bunches of asparagus (about 18-24 spears), cut off the woody ends

  • 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese

  • 21 Seasoning salute (Trader Joe's)


  • Preheat your oven to 400. Season chicken thighs with garlic salt, dried thyme, sea salt and black pepper.

  • Heat a large oven safe skillet or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the olive oil. Sear the thighs, skin-side down until skin is golden brown and crisp (about 3-5 minutes). Flip chicken over and sear on the other side for about 4 to 5 minutes (chicken will finish cooking in the oven.

  • Add butter to pan then add the garlic until fragrant (about 20-30 seconds). Squeeze juice from lemon over chicken, then sprinkle thyme (2-3 sprigs) over chicken.Place another a few sprigs around the chicken.

  • Transfer your skillet to the oven and allow to cook for about 25-30 minutes (until completely cooked through). On a cookie sheet toss asparagus in olive oil, 21 Salute seasoning or salt & pepper, put the asparagus in the oven during the last 15 minutes of the chicken cooking.

  • Remove chicken from oven and garnish with lemon slices.

  • Remove asparagus from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheeses.

  • Enjoy!
