  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Spread asparagus onto rimmed baking sheet; drizzle with dressing.
  • Place chicken in single layer in shallow pan sprayed with cooking spray. Blend salsa and cream cheese in blender until smooth; pour over chicken. Cover.
  • Bake 25 min. or until chicken is done (165°F), adding asparagus to the oven for the last 15 min. and baking just until crisp-tender, turning every 5 min.
  • Place chicken on platter; sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve with asparagus.

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

Cool, then refrigerate any leftovers. Serve as a filling for warmed flour tortillas.
