Saturday Recipe.

Chicken recipes always come in handy. Always have chicken in the freezer.

Chicken and Asparagus with Melted Gruyere

8 oz asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tsp plus 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1-1 1/4 pounds), trimmed
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbs canola oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white wine
1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 Tbs chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tsp lemon juice
2/3 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

1. Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan, add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Add asparagus; cover and steam for 3 minutes. Uncover, remove from the heat and set aside.

2. Whisk broth and 2 teaspoons flour in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

3. Place the remaining 1/4 cup flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and dredge both sides in the flour, shaking off any excess.

4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side, adjusting heat as needed to prevent scorching. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

5. Add shallot, wine and the reserved broth mixture to the pan; cook over medium heat, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in sour cream, tarragon, lemon juice and the reserved asparagus until combined. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle cheese on top of each piece of chicken, cover and continue cooking until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.

Have a great weekend


  1. Jo, I have taken the liberty of awarding you a 'Mystery Blogger Award'. It's a fun meme designed to get people reading more blogs! Check out my latest post and se if you'd like to join in.

  2. Sounds yummy - always on the lookout for new chicken recipes - although I think I'd miss out the asparagus or substitute something else for it - had a real sickener of it in Germany last year.

    1. That's a shame Fil. Were you eating white asparagus? They eat a lot of that in Germany I'm told. Now me I eat the green stuff every day in season.

  3. That looks so incredibly delicious!

    1. It does JoJo, haven't tried it yet, must do so.
