"Came up with this one night a few years ago when I was trying to come up with something new for dinner. My husband discovered that asparagus wasn't so bad with this meal."

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (1 ounce) package
dry ranch dressing mix
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cheddar cheese soup
fresh asparagus, trimmed
This was ok. I didn't find the chicken to have enough flavor. I was surprised the ranch packet didn't add more flavor. I think it might be helpful to rub the seasoning on the chicken in advance to really let the flavors combine. I also think cooking chicken breasts for 45 minutes is way too long. I initially cooked the chicken for 20 minutes, so it was still underdone. I then added the cheese soup, asparagus and Swiss and put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Total cook time of 35 minutes. It was cooked perfectly at that point and juicy. I also had to turn up the temperature on the oven in the last 5 minutes to get the asparagus cooked and the cheese bubbling. I did like that the chicken and asparagus were cooked together, so when you're pressed for time, that is helpful.
