For this elegant dish, boneless chicken breast and asparagus are smothered in a luxurious white-wine sauce with just the right amount of melted Gruyère cheese. Tarragon and lemon add a delicious light flavor that is perfect with asparagus.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This was excellent! Used a good quality gorgonzola instead of gruyere which made the chicken breast look beautiful on the plate and gave it a wonderful flavor. "

This was very delicious. I will definitely be making this often. I doubled the asparagus and substituted olive oil for the canola. I calculated the calories on caloriecount.about.com and they totaled over 450 per serving. Way more than the 306 shown here. Just FYI.

This was a delicious meal. The sauce is excellent and you could easily make it without the cheese and it would be equally as good. I made twice the asparagus and there was plenty of sauce,

We made this last night and quite enjoyed it. Instead of using shallots, we used onion. Did not have gruyere cheese, so used smoked gouda and ti gave the dish another depth of flavor. Added more lemon juice than specified, along with lemon zest, as we love anything lemony. We are always looking for new chicken recipes, which don't add tons of fat. This felt indulgent, while being still being pretty healthy. This recipe seems pretty versatile. We used asparagus, as it is on sale this week, but won't be using it when it is expensive. Muschrooms and artichoke hearts seem like they would work well, in place of asparagus.

My family thought this was just average. A little bland for us. Probably won't add this to my permanent recipe file. :)

This dish tasted wonderful. I did everything as specified, except I used garlic instead of shallots. It was nice enough for a dinner party or just a dinner at home.
