READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by winkki

Easy to make but nice enough for company, from the "Touched by a Rainbow" Kansas cookbook. Dh doesn't like bleu cheese so I leave it out. Serve with rice or noodles.

An old favorite from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook I received for a graduation present 25 years ago. Now a kid favorite. Prefer to make with thighs, and use reduced sodium cream of chicken soup (Campbells has a heart healthy version). Sides include couscous, quinoa and watermelon. Kids love it, as do the adults. Can also substitute green beans for the asparagus.
