Classy Chicken

This is a really easy recipe and definitely a Bridge favourite! It’s called,  “Classy” because it features asparagus and when we created this recipe many years ago,  asparagus was really  hard to find, not to mention expensive

    • Hi Jeri-Lou,
      Because this recipe was created for the oven only, it doesn’t contain the right ratio of liquids to solid ingredients for the slow cooker. Chicken by it’s very nature can dry out very quickly so we’d have to do some experimenting in the test kitchen before we’d feel comfortable giving you slow cooker instructions.

  3. I’ve been making this for 35 years, and it’s amazing every time! Making it tonight for dinner, about the 3,000 th time! Love love love this!

  4. Great recipe! So easy! Make ahead, make a salad, and set the table. All that’s left is to cook the rice or noodles. Meantime, socialize with your company over a glass of wine. Everyone loves this one!!!

  5. I have had this exact recipe since I think 1990 or so. I can’t remember the cookbook I got it from, it was similar to company’s coming books, cerlox bound I can see it but I can’t remember the name of the cook book there was s series of them.
    Thx
