    Yummmeee! I substituted a roasted garlic olive oil for the butter. I forgot to tell my husband there were lemons/rind in there.....lol!

    Yummy!!! This is such a unique combo of flavors! I love the tang of the lemon with the potatoes. I think you could easily make it without the asparagus and it would still be yummy- but I love asparagus, so I would only try it that way if I was desperate.

    my mom made this for dinner the other day, but instead of a whole cut up chicken, she used skinless, boneless chicken breast pieces and it worked just fine. I really liked this, the lemon and thyme make such a good flavor. I love asparagus!
