    I was very nervous about preparing this dish because I was worried that the steamed asparagus wouldn't turn out but my guests loved it. Fairly easy recipe and I will definitely serve it again. I made a spinach salad with cranberries and mandarin oranges and I made oven roasted potatoes using Lipton Onion Mix and olive oil. My dinner party was a success and I will definitely make this recipe again!  -  08 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this twice; once the original way and it was good; once my way and it was fantastic (for me). My Way: I marinated the chicken for 1 hour in the wine and herbs but added 1/2 lemon for greater acidity. Dipped them in an egg bath and then dusted them with a mixture of 30/70 Flour/Parmesean Cheese (grated not shreded) and pan fried it. I was suprised the sauce went so well over the crusted chicken breast. Also I blanched my Asparagus instead of steaming them; but that is just a personal prefrence. Great Recipe!!  -  29 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wouldn't change a thing. This is quite a tasty recipe. With so few ingredients, I was skeptical; assuming it would be bland. On the contrary. It's super easy, creamy and scrumptious. A perfect mid-week meal for the family that looks like a gourmet dish. My 8-year-old son and my wife loved it. I will make it again.  -  21 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
