I invented this chicken and veggie dish to use up extra mushrooms and asparagus. My husband suggested I write it down because it's a keeper. —Rebekah Beyer, Sabetha, Kansas

"When I saw this , I thought it would be a good way to use up the last of some leftover turkey, so I used that instead of the chicken. I also used the end of the frozen asparagus from last years garden. It was really tasty! I will definitely make this again when I have more fresh in the garden."

"Didn't think this had much flavor. Maybe it was because I also used a non-stick pan. Maybe next time I would add some fresh thyme with the mushrooms and finish the dish with some fresh parsley."

"I made this recipe and it was very good. I used a non-stick skillet and I had some liquid in the pan after sauteing the chicken, which I kept and added back to the skillet with the chicken mixture as directed in step 3. It made the sauce runny so next time I will try discarding that liquid."
