Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers


I recently made this recipe for Tim and we loved it! I was feeling bored with the recipes I had, so I typed in the ingredients I had (chicken, roasted red peppers, and asparagus) into Allrecipes.com. Among others, it spit this recipe out for me. It was so delicious, I will most certainly make it again! And it's healthy too! You should definitely give it a try, it was super easy! I adjusted it for just two because Tim hates leftovers :) But you can double it if you want more (and you might!)

julie- i tried this tonight and it was FABULOUS! nathan loved the chicken. i knew he wouldn't like the asparagus so i steamed up some carrots for him and the little man. and for the life of me i couldn't find roasted red peppers in the store, so i just roasted my own. turned out great.
thanks for expanding my menu! i've been waiting to try some asparagus and it was on sale for $1/lb today. can't beat that! :)
