Chicken Teriyaki with Asparagus Recipe


3/4 cup honey teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup white wine
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
16 spears fresh asparagus
4 slices Swiss cheese


In a large bowl, mix the honey teriyaki sauce and wine. Place chicken in the bowl, and coat with the marinade. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour (it is best if you can marinate overnight).

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Discard marinade, and arrange chicken breasts in a baking dish. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until almost done.

Place the asparagus in a pot fitted with a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water, and steam 5 minutes, until tender.

Place 4 asparagus spears on each chicken breast, and top each breast with a slice of Swiss cheese. Return to oven, and continue baking 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear.
