Directions

  1. In a large saucepan cook asparagus in boiling water for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Immediately plunge asparagus in ice water to stop cooking. Set aside.
  2. In a very large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Drain all but 1 tablespoon drippings from the skillet.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in hot drippings over medium-high heat for 12 minutes or until brown, turning once. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
  4. Add squash to skillet and cook 3 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together broth, flour and lemon peel. Add to skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened and bubbly. Add chicken and asparagus back to skillet. Cook 6 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink. Chop bacon and sprinkle on top. Serve with lemon wedges.
