A wonderful recipe full of nutrients from the bed of spinach and protein from the chicken. This dish combines several flavors for a great tasting lunch or dinner. Adapted from a popular weight loss tracking website.

Delicious! I added both the asparagus tips and a bit of the stalk. I roasted the asparagus for about 10 minutes in a 400 degree oven rather than steaming. And I used "short-cuts" grilled chicken breast to make this an easy weeknight dinner. I also sprinkled the almonds on top. I can't wait to make this in the spring when both asparagus & cilantro will be overflowing in my vegetable garden. I will post a picture this weekend.
