Plated Moroccan Chicken and Asparagus

Finger lickin' good chicken.  I prepped this on Sunday (took about 5 minutes) and let it sit in my fridge until Wednesday.  Wednesday evening, I dumped it out on a sheet pan and stuck it in the oven; cooked while Stella and I played games. Voila, dinner was ready and I literally spend less than 10 minutes in the kitchen.  I served it with a side of asparagus, which I put on the lower shelf of the oven 15 minutes before the chicken was due to come out.

OMG, simple, good and good for you.

Enjoy!
