Don't know where my original review went, but this is delicious & easy, and has been in my rotation for years now! We don't like asparagus so I used 1/2 bag green beans, and to save $ shredded 1 large carrot myself. Since 2014 I've been making double sauce because we like a gob on rice to go with it, too!

The chicken ended up being rubbery. The asparagus and carrots were amazing!

This looks delicious and was recommended by my daughter. I know ads support each persons blog, but there were so many popups I just gave up.

I find it almost impossible to read the actual recipe. All the ads detract so much that your readers can't even Find the Recipe. I realize that is how you pay the bills but it is completely frustrating because the page is SO cluttered. Clearly no one in the office looks at the finished product before it is posted to the internet.

Is it acceptable to use stolen shredded carrot or must it be purchased?

Just made this and I added asparagus, more chicken tenderloins, onion, carrots and instead of tomato I added sweet red peppers. I also double the sauce it cooked in and layered it over brown rice and spread some sauce over it when plated. It was so good, I think next time I'm going to add water chestnuts!!! Definitely a recipe to cook again :)

Very good.  I used string beans instead of asparagus since I didn't have any at the time, no problem.  Will be using the rest for lunches at work.  Also shredded my own carrots.

Quick, easy, healthy recipe. Doesn't make a whole lot, though. To help it stretch, serve over a bed of wild rice. Almond slices would be a great addition to this as well! Hubby & I thought it was a very good recipe.
