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.

  1. Heat oil in lg skillet over medium heat.

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.

My family loves this recipe which I first found in Good Housekeeping Cookbook. I cook the asparagus in the micro separately for consistency. Still good when you spoon sauce over it. Chicken Rice A Roni is a great easy side.

I've made this one before - it's also in the Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook. The bleu cheese is worth trying - I didn't think I would like it the first time I had it, but it makes it special - festive even :)
