I love Spring! After months of dark Winter days and root vegetable meals, the bright greens of Spring are so refreshing. One of my favorite Spring produce items is Asparagus. It is easy to cook and even easier to eat - with just a little butter you have a delicious Spring side dish.
We've been enjoying simple buttered Asparagus at dinner for over week now, so when I found another big bunch of it at the market on Saturday I decided to dress it up a little. I remembered that when I was younger my mom used to make a Chicken Asparagus wrap that the whole family used to love. These Chicken Asparagus Wraps might not be exactly like what mom used to make, but they're pretty darn close.
The star of this show is the asparagus, of course. But the Basil Cream Sauce that I added for a punch of flavor is a really good supporting actor here. These are light, flavorful, but still filling. You can bet we'll have Chicken Asparagus Wraps on our menu all season long!
These Chicken Asparagus Wraps, with their creamy basil sauce, make a perfect quick lunch or dinner. To make it even easier, use rotisserie or canned chicken and you can have a hearty, fresh Spring meal in about 15 minutes. Oh, how I love Spring produce!
