Reviews forChicken/Asparagus Roll-Ups
"The combination of asparagus, cooked onions, tomato and chicken is fantastic!"
"A coworker gave me some fresh asparagus from their garden, so I decided to try this recipe. I liked that it was easy to make, healthy, and my husband said it "looked fancy"! Next time I make it I will probably add more garlic and add more pepper and seasonings and just skip the dipping in flour part."
