AJ does NOT like asparagus at all. He was not buying they were similar to broccoli. Nope, he wanted nothing to do with it…but ate some chicken. 

I LOVED the asparagus and chicken and was all too happy to eat whatever asparagus AJ did not want. 


Yes, buying organic/NON-GMO is expensive. Until there is a big change in food production and what consumers buy, healthy choices will always be more expensive. If you want to start small with organic…here are some great tips.

  1. That sounds delicious to me, Karen. We love roasted asparagus, but I’ve pretty much just used grapes oil, salt and pepper. This is a fun new twist… I would gobble it!

  2. I never thought to combine Italian and BBQ seasonings together! Sounds delicious! Asparagus is also hit or miss in our house. Don’t know if AJ thinks these things would be funny…but you could tell him about the, um, latent bathroom side effects of eating asparagus. It seems like the kind of thing a 6 year old boy would like.

  3. That looks truly delicious!! I love asparagus. My son? Trying to get him to eat anything green is really difficult so I can relate.

  4. Hi Karen,
    I just bought organic GMO & soy free chicken yesterday from an Amish family and this sounds like a great recipe to try. I love chicken almost any way I can make it and the asparagus sounds great with it. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & twitted.

  5. Great asparagus recipe. I’m a vegetarian so no chicken here… but I am a HUGE fan of asparagus. I have all the ingredients in my cupboard to make the sesame seasoning. Sounds delicious!
