Special Equipment Needed

Trimming Fresh Asparagus

Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.

Creative Leftovers

Shred any remaining chicken and serve with warm corn tortillas.
