Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pounds (680 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter

  4. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) dry white wine
  5. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice
  6. Salt and pepper
  7. 4 ounces (115 g) gruyere, thinly sliced

Cooking Instructions

First, pound the chicken breasts until they're inch (6 mm) thick all over.

Cut into 4 portions.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and start browning the chicken.

While that's happening, snap the ends off the asparagus where they break naturally.

Put the asparagus in a microwaveable casserole dish or lay it in a glass pie plate.

Add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water and cover.

(Use plastic wrap or a plate to cover if you're using a pie plate.

) Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes.

When the chicken is golden on both sides, add the wine and the lemon juice to the skillet and turn the chicken breasts to coat both sides.

Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Turn the heat to medium-low and let the chicken continue to cook until the asparagus is done micro Remove the asparagus from the microwave and drain.

Lay the asparagus spears over the chicken, dividing equally between the portions.

Cover each with gruyere and cover the skillet with a tilted lid.

Continue cooking a few minutes just until the cheese is melted.

Serve.
