Got this recipe from Real Simple Magazine. I used green beans instead of asparagus. I was a bit weird to poach the chicked but it gave it a very unique flavor.

really easy to do and makes a really great meal in very little time. Also quite healthy. I love the idea of substituting green beans and will do that next time. Thanks for posting!
