Saucy Chicken and Asparagus Recipe

You won't believe how delicious, yet how easy this dish is. We tasted it for the first time when our son's godparents made it for us. Even my grandmother—who's 95 years old—likes to serve this creamy dish for luncheons with friends! —Vicki Schlechter, Davis, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 25, 2014

"I have used this dish when I was feeling exceptionally tired from working all day or I had after-work commitments that narrowed my time window for cooking. If you like both chicken and asparagus, you're almost guaranteed to like this recipe! Folks who prefer uncomplicated, basic flavors will appreciate the dish as is. I have found that over time (this recipe was submitted over 10 years ago!), I have needed to make the seasonings more contemporary to maintain my interest; therefore, I add about 1 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle powder as well as 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning to the sauce mix. I also add the chicken drippings from the fry pan. If you don't happen to have the cheese, it's perfectly acceptable."
