Recipe: Sheet Pan Garlic Lemon Chicken + Asparagus

This recipe is a sneak peek of a recipe from The Supermama Society, my online group coaching membership. Each month I feature a brand-new family-friendly recipe (plus 50+ more in the recipe library) along with a monthly masterclass designed to help you become a more balanced eater. This month's masterclass is all about Balancing Hunger, Fullness + Cravings. Registration is open for a limited time only. Learn more + sign up today.

I LOVE finding alternatives to foods I love, but might not be *the* most nutrient dense. And where we are ALL about the balance around here, we're also about upping the nutrient ante whenever you can- as long as it's just as satisfying. If the 'real thing' is more satisfying, go with that mama- but when you can, it's always nice to swap in some nutrient-dense foods. Breaded chicken is one of those favorites for me!

This one-pan chicken and asparagus is easy and delicious- and it features a delicious almond flour breading that is super tasty, and the whole family devoured. Win-win!
