skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds
fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
shredded Cheddar cheese
You MUST add water to the cream of chicken soup, mayonnaise and lemon juice mixture before poring it over the chicken and asparagus. The asparagus creates a liquid at the bottom of the baking dish during cooking so in order to make the dish edible, I had remove the chicken (scraping off most of the thick soup mixture and melted cheese) and asparagus from the baking dish before stirring in enough hot water to make a sauce.
I made this last night - appreciated the ease, and the sauce was good, but next time I will definitely bake the asparagus in a separate dish! Asparagus needs to be bright green and crispy!
9X9 dish is too small for this recipe. too much juice from the asparagus formed while cooking making the sauce watery in spots. Chicken was too dry after cooking twice. Would not make again.
My husband and I loved this! I used reduced fat cream of chicken, mayo and cheese to lighten it up a bit and it was delicious! So creamy!
My family loved this recipe! Easy, one (baking) dish dinner. Rich, flavorful, and delicious.
