"Since we can hardly wait for asparagus to appear in the spring, this recipe is a real family favorite," confides Lois Crissman of Mansfield, Ohio. "If you get too impatient waiting for garden-fresh spears, you can substitute canned or frozen instead, which will also lessen the cooking time."

"This was delicious. I cut up my chicken into medallions to save a little on cooking time and we used frozen asparagus since it's not in season right now. This tasted wonderful and was a comforting and satisfying meal."

"Delicious and very tender chicken. I didn't have dill so I used tarragon. Also served it with white rice. Will definitely make it again."
