  • Melt the butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the chicken breasts about 3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from the skillet, and set aside.

Pour soup over chicken.

  • Cover the skillet, and bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cover, sprinkle with almonds, and bake for another 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine water and rice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve chicken and asparagus over rice.

Okay sorry this is not good. I love chicken I love asparagus almonds tarragon everything in the ingredients... but it had no flavor. I might has well have just boiled up some chicken and asparagus. If you like bland food (like something from a cafeteria or buffet) then go for it. I hate to be a meanie but it just wasn't that yummy! How did it get these reviews? I put two cans of soup added some milk- the consistency was nice. I added mushrooms as well and served it over rice. It needs something else though. Perhaps sour cream or melted cream cheese? Maybe some lemon juice? Something that compliments the tarragon I don't know what. Maybe just needs more tarragon. Definitely needs salt and pepper. Read More

We enjoyed this recipe but I would make a few changes if I were to make it again. The condnsed chicken soup really stayed quite lumpy. I think I would add some milk to the condensed soup and mix really well before pouring it over the dish. Also I added some red peppers to the dish for some color and because I had them! It wasn't too kid friendly in our house because of the asparagus but I made it because of the asparagus! Read More

I did as the other person suggested and added some milk to the cream of chicken soup before pouring over the top. It turned out great. I think it would have been too thick without it. Other than that I think the recipe is very good...especially over rice. Read More

I love this recipe. It is quick and easy. My 6 year old loves asparagus so it has proven to be very kid-friendly around my house. I always get clean plate results. Read More

I used chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts. We love asparagus so I used 1-1/2 lbs. instead of 1 lb. It was good but I think next time I'll use 2 cans of cream of chicken to have more sauce. Read More

I love it! It's a nice change from the "same old chicken" we usually have. My husband's favorite vegetable is asparagus so this recipe was well received. Read More

This recipe was great! I didn't have any almonds on hand but it still turned out super. My family loved it. It definitely had flavor. I am even thinking of adding some fresh mushrooms to the mix. To boot it was very easy and quick - my favorite kind of dinner. Read More
