Boil chicken breasts in water seasoned with salt, poultry seasoning, onion, and celery until tender. Cool, de-bone and tear into bite-size pieces. Set aside. Saut onion in butter and add remaining ingredients, except asparagus, chicken and almonds. Simmer sauce until the cheese melts. To assemble, place a layer of chicken in a large casserole, a layer of asparagus and a layer of sauce. Repeat layers, ending with sauce. Top with almonds. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Do not add liquid even if it looks dry. If large breasts are used, this will serve 8-10.
This is a wonderful company recipe. Delicious and impressive.
jamiethiele 2y agoGood, but rich. A showcase recipe that I would make for company.
audrella 2y agoThis was a great recipe, fast and easy. Even got my 16 year old niece to eat asparagus. I added some bisquick and butter to the top for a sort of crust and it was delicious. I will definitely be making this often, the boyfriend hasn't stopped saying how much he liked it :D
elaineg1113 2y agoThis had great flavor..but mine was a bit watery...think I'll leave out one of the cans of soup next time
jencon2004 3y agoMy family loved this recipe. I put French's onions on top which gave it great flavor and some crunch.
bonedi39 4y agoA real hit with the men in the family. Used fresh asparagus. Worked in onion soup base and water for the evaporated milk . Great added flavor.
mrssmith09 4y agoit didn't turn out right. will try & make one more time.
ddoiron411 5y agoThis was a delicious recipe. Would definately make it again. I would change how the chicken is cooked, as I felt the chicken was a little tough. I would suggest cooking the chicken in a pan and follow the rest of the recipe. Two thumbs up. Even my picky Aunt loved this one.
Card81 5y agoThis recipe is awesome!!!! I added a can of veg all (drained) and crumbled ritz crackers on top and drizzled butter on top too!!!! It's a good recipe and feeds a lot!!! Oh and added Tonys seasoning but I add it to everything :)
Qasandra 6y agoEverything except the almonds..but I was confused when it said celery at the beggining of the recipe but not ingredients... Smells great
Rmarieblack23 6y agoI did not like flavors at all. My boyfriend thought was so so without the almonds.
