- 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and each cut lengthwise into two pieces
- 2 – 3 tsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
- salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 1 lb. fresh asparagus
- 1 cup chicken stock simmered to reduce to 3/4 cup
- 1/2 cup sour cream regular or light, but not fat-free
- 3 oz. soft goat cheese
- 3 T Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup finely grated sharp cheddar I used white cheddar
Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
Spray a rectangular casserole dish with non-stick spray or olive oil.
Trim all visible fat and membrane from chicken breasts and cut each one in half lengthwise.
Season chicken with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper, then heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and brown the chicken until it’s lightly browned on both sides. (The chicken will cook more in the oven so it doesn’t need to be cooked completely through at this point; don’t overcook.)
Put the browned chicken pieces into the casserole dish.
While chicken browns, cut off woody ends of asparagus. (Snap one piece to see how much to cut off, it will break off right where the woody part starts.)
Cut asparagus diagonally into 2 – 3 inch pieces.
Bring a pan of lightly salted water to a gentle boil, and prepare a dish with water and ice cubes.
Put asparagus into the boiling water and cook exactly three minutes, drain, then put asparagus in ice water to stop cooking and drain again.
Let it drain well, then blot the asparagus on both sides with paper towels.
Layer asparagus pieces over the chicken in the casserole dish.
