For the skewers

  • 2 chicken breasts

  • ½ tsp dried thyme

For the roasted asparagus

  • 800 g green asparagus
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized chunks.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the dry rub und marinate the chicken bites with it. Cover and refrigirate for at least 30 minutes for up to 24 hours.
  • Divide the chicken chunks between your skewers (I used 6 wooden skewers).
  • Heat two griddle pans over medium high heat and brush both with olive oil.
  • Add the asparagus to one griddle pan and the skewers to the other.
  • After 5 minutes add the chopped garlic and salt and pepper to taste to the asparagus.
  • Rotate the asparagus and the skewers frequently until the aspargus have softened and are slightly charred and the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  • Serve immidiately.


In the ingredients I stated, that I used green asparagus for this dish. This might be confusing for my US readers, because I believe that white asparagus is not something that's common in the United States, whereas in Germany green asparagus is only slowly on the rise. I don't really like white asparagus, to be honest, it tastes too sweet and bitter for me, so you will probably just find the green variety here on my blog.
