This Chicken Asparagus skillet dinner is one of those meals that requires only a little bit of preparation and a single skillet. Most of the ingredients are likely items you have on hand and the addition of asparagus makes it perfect for the season.
I made this the other evening after a day of watching football. Even though it is still preseason, football feels like fall to me. We do not get the beautiful fall colors on trees like our friends on the east coast will see. But it does bring cooler temperatures which mean football, and comforting casseroles. This was the perfect excuse to make one.
The natural lemon and garlic flavors in the dressing make for a wonderful and easy casserole recipe. With just a few ingredients, you can have dinner in the oven in no time.
I love using an Italian salad dressing to add zest to chicken., I loved how it complimented the flavors of the chicken and asparagus.
