I got this recipe from my mom who got it from Cooking Light Oct. 2007. Very good and pretty easy to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle chicken breasts evenly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chichen in flour. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chichen from pan; keep warm. Add wine, broth, and garlic to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 2 minutes. Add asparagus; cover and cook 3 minutes or until asparagus is crisp tender. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and juice. Serve asparagus and sauce with chicken.

I really enjoyed this meal. I prepared it with ingredients as listed- I used two chicken breasts and included a side of small roasted potatoes and a simple salad with parmesan cheese, avocado and balsamic oil. It was really good - and comforting - good for cold weather.
I was especially happy since Im not a good pan sauce maker - yet this came out zesty and had a nice taste. I used a white wine from Fairways supermarket (a $6.99 pinot grigio).
Will definitely prepare again.

This was great! I had to substitute a lot of dried seasoning for the fresh (i.e. garlic powder, dried parsley, etc.) but it still turned out good. I'm sure it would be even better if I had used the real ingredients (which I intend to try)! I just moved back in with my parents and I cook for them a lot and my dad said he would start giving me an allowance if I cooked like this all the time! haha

I totally agree with Pixie - quick, easy and delish!!!! I also skipped the butter and flour and used cooking spray
