Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp. Country Crock® Spreadable Butter With Canola Oil, divided
  • 1 large shallot [or small onion], finely chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Chicken
  • 6 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch-thick diagonal slices (about 1 cup)*

Directions

  • Combine flour with pepper in shallow dish. Dip chicken in eggs, then flour mixture; set aside.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons Spreadable Butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken, turning once, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon Spreadable Butter in same skillet over medium heat and cook shallots, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in water and Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Chicken until Stock is melted. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Add asparagus and return chicken to skillet. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked and asparagus is tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and serve, if desired, with hot cooked rice.
  • *TIP: Try using green beans, broccoli florets, green peas or sliced mushrooms instead of asparagus!
