The recipe is from a Betty Crocker cookbook, 1954, and I use it frequently. I've tried it with ham instead of chicken and other green vegetables but it was not good. Use fresh asparagus--I steam pieces for about 2 min. I always make a double batch and freeze one. For color, I like to serve with Harvard beets, or in summer with sliced tomatoes.
