I first came across this recipe at a restaurant while living in New York City many years ago. This makes a delectable dish for lunch or dinner served with a simple tossed salad. —Jeanne Koelsch, San Rafael, California
No one will be able to resist these lovely open-faced sandwiches that definitely say "spring". Served on toasted English muffins, slices of chicken and tomato are topped with fresh asparagus spears, then draped with a creamy lemon sauce. "This is a great way to use leftover chicken or turkey," says Anca Cretan of Hagerstown, Maryland.
Layers of crunchy Triscuits sandwich a chicken and vegetable filling in this down-home casserole shared by Margaret Carlson of Amery, Wisconsin. "A friend served this deliciously different dish for an evening meal and I couldn't resist asking for the recipe," she says.
It makes me feel great to prepare a delicious soup like this one and set it on the table in my favorite soup tureen. Even my three children love it. The next day, we scramble for the leftovers...if there are any.

This cool, colorful salad is a palate-pleaser. Apples and asparagus seem an unlikely match, but they form a terrific trio with chicken. I make this salad quite often while asparagus is in season.

I found this recipe several years ago while looking for something unusual but simple I could prepare for company. I could prepare for company. It's a dish that I've served many times since then—with a salad and rolls, it makes a complete meal.
My husband and I both grew up in the country. We're living in a suburb of a big city now, but we hope to move to a rural area. Meanwhile, two small children, home improvement projects, sewing and needlework keep me busy.
