Honey Lemon Chicken & Asparagus: The Recipe that Hooked me onto Pampered Chef

I know I have shared a million times about how I have a little chef in the house! So when a friend threw a Pampered Chef Party on Facebook for a former mutual customer of ours and I saw their SUPER CUTE kid cooking sets, I thought “I know someone who would love this for Christmas!” Well, that someone was looking over my shoulder and flipped out! He was so excited for a kid’s cooking set, that we wound up ordering all 3… and they, of course, were opened way before Christmas. What can you do?

Before we even had a chance to open anything, my wheels were turning. I mean, I knew the products were good from the rave reviews I’d heard over the years, we needed new kitchen stuff anyway (especially if I was featuring recipes on my blog), and if I was going to feature a product, it may as well be something I could get behind and offer to my readers! So, I signed up!

Luke and I went for a relatively easy recipe for our first dinner using the products, but one that would allow us to use multiple pieces! I also had several lemons that were on their last leg, so figured we had better make some kind of a lemon dish before they went to waste. Luckily it was delicious, and for sure one we will be making in the future. We were able to throw it together in a jiffy!

Getting Ready to Cook with Pampered Chef
The little chef was so excited to try our new Pampered Chef Kitchen items!

Oh my gosh, do you see the mess behind him, yall??? Seriously, this is NOT one of those blogs with the perfectly white, clean kitchen! Most of that is what we unboxed from the starter set and hadn’t put away!

I didn’t mention that I was in the throws of helping head up our PTA Carnival & Auction last week, so going to the grocery store was out of the question! Who has time for that when you’re trying to coordinate a $20,000 event?!?!? We used Prime Fresh to order all of our ingredients for the recipe the night before while I was watching “This is Us.” Prime Fresh is so convenient for busy weeks; just order when you have time, set it up for the delivery time you want, and presto! Shopping is over!

I have come to the realization that I cannot multi-task in the kitchen. Luke and I do as much of our prep work as possible before we actually put anything in the oven or stove. If we don’t, we will burn something while we are chopping something else.

Pampered Chef Juicer
Juice your lemons.

The first item you’ll prep is your fresh squeezed lemon juice. The recipe calls for 1/3 of a cup which was about 2ish lemons. Luke was so excited to open up this juicer! We have a hand press to juice lemons and limes with but it’s just too hard for his little hands! With the Pampered Chef Juicer, he was able to juice two lemons so easily!

Chop up about a tablespoon or so of fresh parsley! You’ll use half in the sauce and half for garnish. We always use a little extra than the recipe calls for since we like the fresh taste! We used the 5″ Santoku Knife to chop the parsley and were shocked and how quickly and easily we were able to chop everything up. That knife is SHARP! After the picture, Luke handed it to me to finish up our chopping, and he went back to using his little knife.

We used the Flexible Mat Set to cut on, and loved them! They have a no-slide surface on the back side, and have measurements and other cooking tips on them! Super cute!

Next, we got out our new mixing bowl and used the new Garlic Press to prep about 1 tablespoon of fresh garlic. In the bowl, we then combined our lemon juice, 1/4 cup of honey, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and half the parsley we chopped up.  Mix it all up really well and set aside.

During the prep, we chopped up 3 chicken breasts. The recipe calls for whole chicken breasts, but going ahead and cutting them into strips helps me when it is time to serve everyone. The boys usually eat enough to split one breast together.  We used our new White Large Round Pan that I had ordered from the party to cook on! Simply salt & pepper your chicken, oil the bottom, add half of your lemon sauce mixture, and then cover with foil. Cook the chicken at 400 deg for 20 minutes.

The recipe suggests cooking with sliced lemons on top of the chicken. If you really LOVE lemon, add some more. We were out of lemons so didn’t add more, but did not feel like anything was missing by not adding it.

Once 20 minutes have passed, you’ll take the foil off and add your chopped asparagus & the other half of your sauce. Place it back in the oven, uncovered, for another 15-20 minutes.

When you take it out of the oven, your home will smell of savory lemons! I probably could have let it go a few more minutes to get that golden brown on top but the boys were starving and the chicken was cooked through so we went with it!

Serve over pasta

There are a ton of sides that would be great with this dish. When I asked Luke what he wanted, he said pasta! We made a side of penne pasta and served it tossed simply in olive oil, and parmesan cheese! Garnish the top with some of that leftover parsley, and you’re good to go!

The kids ate the entire dish, asparagus and all, and I LOVED my new Pampered Chef kitchen items! Could your kitchen supplies use a refresh like mine?

    That sounds SO good! Sadly, I had to toss my asparagus yesterday, since we didn’t use it fast enough and it started molding ☹️☹️ otherwise I would totally be trying this recipe right away.

    My daughter is 11, and loves to cook. I don’t know why I didn’t think of Pampered Chef before to get her started with her own cooking set. It’ll make such an amazing gift idea. She’ll love using it to make yummy recipes (and I am all about asparagus so it’s a win for me too).
