Ingredients

Cooking Spray

1/2 poundfresh asparagus

Salt

1/4 cupunsalted butter (4 tablespoons)

1 tablespoonDijon-style mustard

3 tablespoonslemon juice + thin lemon slices to garnish

2 tablespoonshalf and half


Step 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 TIP

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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.
