    This was very good. Next time I make it, I will cook the chicken first, remove it from the skillet, then cook the veggies so they get brown and caramelized. Super easy to make!

    I didn't have asparagus so I added grape tomatoes in the last few minutes of sauteing the veggies, plus I added a couple cloves of garlic to the mix. The tomatoes cooked down to give a nice tomato cream sauce. We thought it needed a little salt and pepper, but otherwise it was great. A definite keeper!
