We added fresh spring asparagus, vibrant cherry tomatoes, chunks of purple onion and chicken tenders to a skillet for a one-pan meal that’s big on flavor and easy on clean-up. Cook this one pan meal up in a large non-stick sauté pan or a cast iron skillet. The GoodCook® Everyday Sauté Pan is roomy enough for this whole meal and has a non-stick interior that cleans up easily. 

To get started on this simple dinner, prep the veggies using a GoodCook® Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife. Follow the instructions below to trim the ends off the asparagus:

How to trim asparagus

The ends of your asparagus will need to be trimmed before adding to this recipe. The ends of the stalks are woody and tough. Either cut off the ends with a GoodCook® Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife or gently bend each asparagus stalk and the woody part will snap off. 

Steps to make chicken and veggie spring skillet

  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.
  • Add the garlic and onion, sautéing for 3-5 minutes or until the liquids release. 
  • Add the chicken tenders and cook for another 5 minutes, until browned. 
  • Add the Italian seasoning, balsamic vinegar, and basil.
  • Add in all of the veggies, cooking for another 5 minutes or until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Use a GoodCook® Digital Thermometer to measure the internal temperature.
  • Serve the chicken and veggies as is or with a side of crusty bread or brown rice.

Tips for cooking

  • If you love dark chicken meat, swap out the chicken tenders for chicken thighs. Remember, it takes longer for the thighs to cook through. Use a GoodCook® Digital Thermometer to measure the internal temperature.
  • The asparagus does not need to be blanched first. Keep an eye on the tenderness, since it can go from bite tender to mushy very quickly.
  • If basil isn’t your thing, sub in flat leaf Italian parsley instead.
