Don’t forget your veggies. An elegant side to your chicken is asparagus. Asparagus is easy to prepare, no matter what style you like. But I recommend keeping it simple.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh asparagus
  • Good olive oil
  • Kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Methods/steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Break off the tough ends of the asparagus and, if they’re thick, peel them.
  3. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then toss to coat the asparagus completely.
  4. Spread the asparagus in a single layer and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  5. Roast the asparagus for 25 minutes, until tender but still crisp.
