"Really really liked this recipe. Will be making it again soon. It was easy and very yummy. I just put my extra asparagus on top and baked it right along with the chicken rolls. It was all fabulous!"

"Amazing! I have not made a lot of recipes with asparagus, but the ones I have, I did not care for. My husband was very happy that I found one that tastes great! My chicken did turn out a little dry, but I think it is because I forgot to cover the dish for the first 25 minutes. I will definitely make this again. Quick, simple and delicious. Next time, I think I will double the sauce and try marinating the chicken in half of the sauce before cooking it."
