asparagus chicken

I keep forgetting to post this when I make it but remembered to do so tonight. This is a perfect dish for this time of year when asparagus is abundant and inexpensive.

for 4-6 servings:

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 # fresh asparagus
6-8 slices provolone cheese
Olive oil, garlic, course salt

In pan, drizzle olive oil. Rinse and pat chicken dry and place in pan. Top with garlic and salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until ¾ of the way cooked. Crisscross asparagus stocks on top of chicken and drizzle with more olive oil. Bake another 15-20 minutes. Top with cheese until melted, about 5 minutes. Serve with rice, long grain and wild rice, or baked potatoes. Yumm!

    Thanks! Hubby LOVES asparagus. We had some delish asparagus the other night–lightly sauteed w/ butter until just crisp-tender, with almonds added in at the end.

    Thank you so much for the very kind comment you left. I love hearing from readers and hope you will visit often.
    You have a wonderful and inspiring site here! I must copy the chicken and aspargus recipe ~ my dad always has lots of homegrown asparagus for us from his garden, so I will save it for then.
