BBQ Chicken-Wrapped Asparagus
Hands down, this is one of my favorite meals. It’s a super easy way to get your daily dose of veggies, and it’s easily customizable so you can really make the meal your own. Go seasonal with your farmer’s market faves or put a new spin on flavor by mixing in different spices.
