    This chicken was very moist and easy to prepare. The flavor was very bland.

    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.
