Kraft Fresh Take Southwestern chicken & asparagus with mushroom & garlic

This meal was so easy to make! It took me 10 minutes to prep, and 20 total to cook! I used the new Kraft Fresh Take Southwestern mix. It's a mix of cheddar cheese and breadcrumb with  Southwestern seasonings. All you have to do is toss & coat in the bag and bake. The asparagus were so yummy & crisp. Steamed them just right. Below is the recipe, I hope you enjoy!

3 boneless chicken breast
1 Kraft Fresh Take Southwest three cheese breadcrumb mix
1 Non stick cooking spray

1 lb Asparagus
1 lb white mushrooms sliced
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup of white cooking wine
4 cloves of garlic

When I said this was an easy meal to make, I was not kidding! The new Kraft Fresh Take mix comes in an easy to use zip bag. It make it's very convenient for the cook, and that is always a plus. Preheat your oven at 350 degrees.  I cut my chicken breast in form of chicken fingers, because the kids seem to enjoy it when they hear me say I made it into strips just for them. I took the chicken strips one by one and coated them well inside the zip bag. I sprayed my glass baking dish with Pam original cooking spray. Once I was done coating the chicken, I poured the remaining mix on top of it. I baked in the oven for about 20 minutes. While the chicken is baking I start preparing the asparagus. I had already bought the white mushrooms sliced, so that cut out some of the prep time. I brought a sauce pan with 4 cups of water to a boil. Now tie spears into a bundle. Cook for 2-3 minutes in boiling water with tips upward. Then just dip the tips briefly into the boiling water. This way the woody part of the asparagus cooks longer, while the tips are getting all the steam from the boiling water. Melt the butter in a cooking pan,, and saute your garlic & mushrooms for about 1 minute on high heat. Add your cooking wine, and bring it down to a medium heat for another minute. Remove asparagus from stove & place on a serving dish. Once your sauce is simmering pour over the asparagus. Check that your chicken is baked thoroughly and remove from oven. You are all done. Bon Appetit!!
