I had fejita chicken strips. I followed the recipe otherwise. The recipis simple, and inspiring. A good base recipe to build on. I definitely recommend trying it.
Chicken and Asparagus in White Wine Sauce
This tasty chicken and asparagus with white wine sauce is easy enough for a weeknight dinner but impressive enough for company.
This recipe works equally well with green beans or haricots verts in place of asparagus.
