      In a large sheet pan, spread the asparagus out and drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of the olive oil to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

      Next, place the almonds on the pan, add 1 teaspoon of oil to coat then roast in at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.

      In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil until very hot.

    6. 6
      Toss in half of the almonds and place the hot rice on a warm platter.

      First, about the time: the start to finish time for this meal is 30-40 mins with washing and trimming the asparagus, squeezing the lime juice and grating the zest, minceing the onion and garlic, then dealing with the mint leaves. That said, this is delicious and 30 or so mins is still a quick dinner prep. The flavors of the chicken, lime and mint are lovely and the almond crunch with it are so good! I added some garlic and a splash of the lime juice to the rice while cooking, yum. All of this for just 300 calories with only 3 g's of sugars! This has to be a keeper in my book.
