Marinated Chicken & Grilled Asparagus Ingredients:

• 1 whole chicken

• 1 bunch asparagus

• ¼ cup fresh sage

• 2 lemons

• 1 cup olive oil

• 1 T smoked paprika

• 1 tsp mustard seeds

• 2 T brandy

• Salt

• Mixed salad greens


Marinated Chicken & Grilled Asparagus Instructions:

• Cut whole chicken by removing both legs, cutting off both breasts leaving wings attached, and slice crown into thick slices cutting through the spine. Add chicken to a mixing bowl.

• Marinate the chicken by adding to the bowl: 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, ¼ cup sage leaves, ¼ cup olive oil, juice of one lemon, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoon brandy. Let marinate 30 minutes, and then roast in 450 degree oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

• Trim 1 pound asparagus by slicing off the bottom inch of the stalk. Get a large cast iron pan or flat griddle onto high heat, and once hot, add asparagus directly into pan. After 20 seconds, add 2 tablespoons olive oil into the pan and season with ½ teaspoon salt.

• Let asparagus cook 2 minutes on one side, and then flip over to brown on other side. Add juice of ½ lemon into the pan and cook until lightly browned but still retains some crunch.


• Serve over salad greens.
