My family LOVED this recipe. I used Olive Oil instead of Canola and Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. Yum! We ran out of sauce, though, so I had to make another batch. I'll probably make twice as much sauce next time. One thing, though, I didn't realize the calories were so high (Thanks, Ellen!); however, I did wonder how this recipe could have such a low calorie count. I wonder if the wine reduction is also a reduction in calories???
Chicken & Asparagus with Melted Gruyere
From EatingWell: May/June 2007
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.

Excellent dish, very flavorous and best of all sooo light! We used olive oil, extra Shallots, Prosecco Wine, Whole Wheat Flour as ingredients, when served we sprinkle a very little bit of Oregano so wake all the flavours... Delicioso! 5 Stars!
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.
