Chicken, Asparagus, and Bacon Skillet

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan cook asparagus in a small amount of boiling water about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Immediately plunge asparagus into ice water to stop cooking.
  2. In an extra-large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in the reserved drippings over medium-high heat about 12 minutes or until brown, turning once. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
  4. Add squash to skillet; cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a medium bowl whisk together broth, flour, and lemon peel; add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add asparagus and chicken to skillet. Cook about 6 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F). Sprinkle with bacon. Serve with lemon wedges.
