Chicken breasts marinated in white wine and herbs, then grilled and served with steamed asparagus and hollandaise sauce. Had it once in a restaurant, tried to recreate it for my wife and this is what I got.

I was very nervous about preparing this dish because I was worried that the steamed asparagus wouldn't turn out but my guests loved it. Fairly easy recipe and I will definitely serve it again. I made a spinach salad with cranberries and mandarin oranges and I made oven roasted potatoes using Lipton Onion Mix and olive oil. My dinner party was a success and I will definitely make this recipe again! Read More

Be careful not to let the chicken marinate more than the 2 hours. I marinated for about 4 hours and it turned out horrible. All I could taste was the wine. Read More

I have made this twice; once the original way and it was good; once my way and it was fantastic (for me). My Way: I marinated the chicken for 1 hour in the wine and herbs but added 1/2 lemon for greater acidity. Dipped them in an egg bath and then dusted them with a mixture of 30/70 Flour/Parmesean Cheese (grated not shreded) and pan fried it. I was suprised the sauce went so well over the crusted chicken breast. Also I blanched my Asparagus instead of steaming them; but that is just a personal prefrence. Great Recipe!! Read More

Wouldn't change a thing. This is quite a tasty recipe. With so few ingredients I was skeptical; assuming it would be bland. On the contrary. It's super easy creamy and scrumptious. A perfect mid-week meal for the family that looks like a gourmet dish. My 8-year-old son and my wife loved it. I will make it again. Read More

We really enjoyed this recipe. For a simpler version bake the chicken directly in the prepared hollandaise sauce and top with asparagus. Read More

I prepared this recipe with the Chickpea Salad with Red Onion and Tomato recipe. While this was a fine combo I would prefer to make this with a mild rice dish next time. This was a very successful recipe. It is nice mild flavor and a good way to combine the veggies with the meat. I ended up cooking it in my oven at 375 on a broiling pan for 25 minutes. This is because I do not have a grill. It worked out fine and I would make this dish again. Read More

Great recipe. I used bernaise sauce instead of hollandaise and less cheese (we don't use much in any dish). Read More

This was pretty dang good. I was worried about what other reviewers said about marinating too long in the wine so I kept mine to two hours on the dot. The flavor was yummy. I didn't use packaged hollandaise. Instead I found "Blender Hollandaise Sauce" on all recipes. It was great! Between the two recipes you'll have a gourmet meal in much less time. Read More
