Mmm, Chicken and Asparagus

One of my favorite easy, healthy recipes is Asparagus and Lemon Chicken with Rice. It is all healthy, basic ingredients and literally takes about 25 minutes.

Ingredients:

Olive oil
1 package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped
Salt and pepper
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 red pepper, minced
1 lb asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 cup white wine
3 cups cooked rice

Preparation:

Cook chicken in skillet with olive oil over medium high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown. Add the garlic and red pepper. Add the asparagus and cook for 1 minutes. Stir in zest and wine and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Serve over rice.

  2. When you cook with white wine, what kind do you use? I love cooking with wine,but I just use a basic one because I don’t drink wine..so any advice on that? They say “use what you would drink”..hehe..doesn’t work on me..
