Are you a team boneless chicken breast or chicken thigh? Honestly, I love both of them. I mean if know the right way of cooking it, both taste great. Many might disagree with me and tell chicken thigh is always better. It is absolutely true, but with a good marination and right cooking time, chicken breast can also be juicy and tender. My preference differs, depending on the recipe.
Coming to this Lemon Herb Chicken, Asparagus, & Mushroom Skillet, both chicken breast and thighs will work here. All you have to do is adjust the cooking time. You can also bake the chicken one you have seared the meat. All that juice released from the chicken will make a delicious butter herb sauce.

The lemony herb butter sauce goes well with asparagus by retaining its natural taste. Not only Asparagus is a delicious vegetable, it is high in fibre and loaded with nutrients too.
