Reviews for Chicken and Asparagus
"This was good. I liked it, but my husband loved it. Will make it again."
"Very good. Doubled the sauce"
"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!"
"I added one small variant, we wrapped these with prosciutto! Excellent dish!!!!"
"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."
