Delectable, with plenty left over for lunch at work tomorrow, and a sure crowd pleaser so try this Chicken with Mushrooms and Asparagus.


  • Vegetable oil, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan
  • ±800g thinly sliced mushrooms
  • ±200-300g asparagus (but use whatever amount you feel like)
  • 1 very thinly sliced onion
  • ± 1kg boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat, and add the oil. Wipe out the excess with a paper towel.
  2. Add mushrooms, and cook for ±5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Add onion, and cook till brown, ± 5 minutes.
  4. Add chicken, and cook ± 6 minutes till brown
  5. Add asparagus, cooked mushrooms, lemon juice, parsley, and salt and pepper.
  6. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for ±10 minutes till the chicken is done.  We prefer our vegetables still crisp (not soggy) so be careful not to overcook.
  7. Serve immediately.

Chicken with Mushrooms and Asparagus


Wally Paul Well here it is Es, with just a couple of variations.
Firstly I cut the recipe down to just 2 thin cut breasts since we are only two.
I did add: 2 small chopped cloves of garlic, a family favorite, and pre sautéed the asparagus tips not to overcook, and then added them for the last two minutes, to the pan.
Did not have enough liquid for the side of rice, so served that with my multi-flavored gravy saved in my fridge.
