Chicken & Asparagus with Melted Gruyere

May/June 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (94 votes)

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. "

Nice meal

I've made this recipe twice now. Each time I've replaced the gruyere with swiss, as I haven't yet acquired the taste for strong and/or pungent cheeses.

The first I made it I followed the recipe exactly and was able to feed four people with it. The second time, I only split one chicken breast for a personal meal and leftovers, but kept most the other ingredients at their existing measurements. This time around I forgot to add the white wine, but I added poultry seasoning to the chicken breasts before flouring and to the pan near the end of the final simmer. This added a nice savoriness to the dish, which perhaps made it so that I did not miss the wine, but is also perhaps a solution to those of us who aren't using stronger cheeses.

Lovely recipe.

Flavorful, simple, fast, inexpensive

Quick and delicious

Ive been making this quite regularly, i think it tastes really great and indulgent, particularly since its a low cal dinner. I dont dredge the chicken in flour, and i use white cheddar as gruyere is a little strong for my SO. He happens to like this dish too and he's a very fussy eater!

Quick, easy, tasty
