Reviews for Cheesy Chicken and Asparagus
"Yes I will make this again and again and again. So easy to throw together during the week night and to have such great flavor. My family has beg me not to lose this recipe so it's on the calendar to make again in four weeks."
"I've made this twice so far. The second time I added a little salt to the chicken when I sautéed it. (this was in addition to the salt that is called for in the recipe) It made a world of difference. No more bland chicken. I omit thyme in any recipe that I come across simply because I can't stomach the taste of thyme. This recipe is a keeper and I will make it often. Very easy and quick."
