  • Line a large steamer basket with the lime slices. Add the chicken breasts in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Steam the chicken until white throughout, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the balsamic vinegar and sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the asparagus and water and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the asparagus to plates. Spoon the sauce over the top. Thickly slice the chicken breasts crosswise, arrange on the asparagus and serve.

    The asparagus was good (although I used just over a tablespoon of butter and substitued home made chicken broth for water) but the chicken not so much. I love lime but this just didn't do it for me or my husband or kids.

    Mmmm, a must for lime-lovers! I steamed chicken breast tenders in my microwave steamer for about 8 minutes, this allowed me to have the whole thing ready in pretty quickly. The asparagus was pleasantly sweet and paired well with the tangy chicken. I cut back the butter to 2T and it seemed like plenty. One note, the ingredients mention 2T of fresh lime juice but the directions don't mention where/when to add it... Made for ZWT5.

    Excellent dinner - not to mention quick, easy, and healthy. I served the asparagus and chicken over a bed of whole grain noodles.

    Chicken came out very dry and tough when cooked this way. Other than that, it was ok, not great.
