Ingredients
4 PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (1.5 lbs.)
Cooking Spray
1/2 pound fresh asparagus
Salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter (4 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
3 tablespoons lemon juice + thin lemon slices to garnish
2 tablespoons half and half
Instructions
1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place breasts on baking sheet, and bake 15 minutes, or until juices run clear and a thermometer inserted into the center of a breast reads 170°F.

TIP: This recipe may easily serve 2 people instead of 4 people by using half the quantity of all ingredients (remember that 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon). To serve 6 people, use 6 breasts, ¾ pound asparagus, 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1½ tablespoons Dijon-style mustard, 4½ tablespoons lemon juice, and 3 tablespoons half and half.
2 Meanwhile, wash asparagus and trim about 2 inches off bottom of stem. In a large skillet, bring about 1/2 inch of water to a boil. Season the water with salt and add the asparagus. Cook the asparagus for about 3 minutes or until bright green and tender. Remove asparagus and water from skillet and reduce heat to low.
3 Melt butter in skillet over low heat and add mustard, lemon juice and half and half while stirring with a whisk for about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
4 Place asparagus and a baked chicken breast on each plate, drizzle chicken with lemon-butter sauce and garnish with thin slices of lemon. Serve.
