Chicken Asparagus Casserole

Back at the time that asparagus entered my realm of edibles I found this recipe http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,168,147183-235197,00.html which has brought me to the dinner table very pleased.  When I was walking in the produce section I found my favorite size asparagus (super thin) and grabbed a moderately sized bundle for a mere $2.99 a lb.  My brain fought over the possibilities in which this casserole won (minus 2 dozen spears for my roasted asparagus recipe).  I thought I would share it with you so that I can pin this as a reminder of one more of my favorite dishes that doesn’t currently have a picture to pin.  So with out much ado, here is the recipe as I do it, to check out the original go to the link.

2 lbs chicken breasts (I prefer tenderloins)
3/4 lb of fresh Asparagus
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
1 c. chicken broth (low sodium if you have it)
1 c. milk
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded (sharp is amazing!)
2 tsp. mayonnaise
2 tsp. prepared mustard
Salt & pepper to taste (I leave this out and let individuals add it at the table if needed)
Fry the chicken with some season salt. Melt butter and stir in flour.  Stir constantly for 2-3 minutes to “cook” the flour. Add in additional ingredients except the chicken and asparagus into saucepan and heat until cheese melts. (You can substitute the chicken drippings for the butter if you wish.) Lay long asparagus spears in bottom of casserole dish. Place chicken over asparagus and pour sauce over top. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Serve with rice.
This is an amazing meal.  White or brown rice compliments this well.  Even my younger boys love this meal.
