We are big time fans of chicken recipes at my house. I had some asparagus that was waiting to be used and whipped this little number up. If you aren’t an asparagus fan (what?!!), this probably won’t be for you. It’s chicken-y and asparagus-y and cheesy.
One note- it’s best straight out of the oven.
