Chicken with Asparagus & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Good morning y’all!  It was a plentiful weekend for asparagus at the market, so I was sure to grab a few bunches knowing that there were several new recipes I’d been wanting to try.  After the refreshing soup, I thought this recipe would be perfect for a quick but healthy week night dinner.  It was exactly that! The flavors were perfect together…the earthiness of the mushrooms.  The tart/sweet flavor of the sundried tomatoes and the crispness of the asparagus all blended together brilliantly.  This is perfect on it’s own or in our case served over a few wild mushroom ravioli.  I even saved some for leftovers the next day for lunch and added fresh spinach and roasted beets.  Yumm!  Enjoy y’all!
