Horseradish. The perfect sinus opener. I love the spicy kick.
However in this dish the horseradish is very mild and balanced by the honey, not to worry.
This is an easy, 30-ish minute sheet pan recipe and cleanup is as easy as tossing away a sheet of foil. Plan ahead because if you can marinate your chicken it will be so much more tender, juicy, and flavorful.
The chicken marinates in a mixture of olive oil, horseradish, honey, salt, and pepper. Simple ingredients that deliver loads of flavor.
I timed this recipe to coincide with Passover approaching. Traditionally both horseradish and honey are foods commonly served at a Passover seder.
Since asparagus is in season now it’s an easy choice for a vegetable although you could swap it out for Brussels sprouts, broccoli, carrots, or another favorite. Tip – Use average-sized asparagus; thick asparagus tends to be tough and the thin asparagus cooks too quickly and gets mushy. I used two pounds to make sure there was an ample amount but if you’re not a total asparagus fiend you could probably get away with one pound.
If you like the honey and horseradish combo as much as I do, whisk a little together and drizzle it over the chicken before serving. The more sauce the merrier.
