Spring is in the air and what better way then to celebrate with a light and refreshing Lemon Chicken Asparagus Sheet Pan Dinner? Yes, an entire dinner created on one pan!

I'm all about simplicity and lessening the dish load. I've been making this meal at least every other week since my daughter was born.

It's easy to put together (about 10 minutes total) and an even easier cleanup. Bonus points, my toddler loves this dinner too.

One thing I've learned to do to really simplify this meal is to make the marinade a head of time. I'll buy a huge pack of chicken from my local wholesale club, and then I make my marinade in each bag, portion out the chicken and freeze!

Then all I have to do is thaw and bake when I'm ready to serve dinner! This method has been a lifesaver for me and I hope that my little secret tip helps you speed up the dinner process.

I incorporated a few boneless skinless chicken breast with baby potatoes that I quartered, and our favorite spring seasonal vegetable; asparagus, to make the ideal weeknight dinner. Best of all you can make the marinade the night prior and let your chicken soak up all the delicious flavor of the lemon, garlic and parsley.

Then the next day, just lop off the ends of the asparagus and quarter the baby potatoes. Place the marinated chicken breast on a sheet pan.

Then, mix the leftover marinade from the chicken on the potatoes and pour it on a large rimmed sheet pan. Strategically place the asparagus and let your dinner bake in the oven!

This entire meal is cooked in just 35 minutes! Potatoes are fork tender, and the chicken is juicy and full of flavor!

By using lots of lemon in this recipe you reduce the amount of salt you need to add to your meal. Lemon can trick your taste buds and make you think that the dish is salty--when in reality, it's not.

That's why I love cooking with it so much. I love salt, but try to limit my salt intake (as we all should).
