The flavors of the asparagus, chicken, ham and cheese all blend together so well in this unique main dish. This recipe also provides a creative use for leftover holiday turkey! I like to serve it with garlic bread and a salad.

"Just made it November 1st. What a great entree to serve on a chilly November day. I used fresh asparagus; boneless chicken thigh meat and sauteed onion and garlic in the butter (instead of the dried onion and garlic powder). Served this w/canned cranberries, garlic bread and cabbage salad."
