    An impressive main dish you can serve for a romantic dinner for two. Increase the serving size and wow friends and family with your culinary talents.

    Preparation Time: 25 mins
    Cook Time: 20 mins
    Servings: 2

    2 c water
    1/2 t salt
    10 thin asparagus spears, trimmed
    2 T flour
    1/4 t salt
    1/8 t black pepper
    2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (see note)
    1 T oil
    1/2 small chopped red onion
    1/2 medium chopped tomato
    3 oz. lump crab meat
    1 recipe lemon-chive sauce (recipe follows)

    Bring water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to boil in medium saucepan; add asparagus and cook until tender about 3 minutes. Drain. Set aside.

    Lay chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Blend flour, salt and pepper in shallow dish; dredge chicken to coat, patting off any excess.

    Add vegetable oil to medium, non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Sauté chicken breasts on both sides until browned and firm, about 3 minutes per side or until thermometer inserted into the thickest part measures 160°F. Remove chicken; keep warm until ready to serve. Add onion to skillet and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes. Increase heat to high, add tomato and sauté until most of the moisture has evaporated. Decrease heat to low and add crab meat; toss gently, cooking just until hot.

    To serve, set one chicken breast on each plate; arrange 5 asparagus spears on top of each. Spoon some of crab mixture over asparagus and drizzle with Lemon Chive Sauce. Garnish with cherry tomatoes, if desired.

    Lemon Chive Sauce:
    In small saucepan over low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter with lemon juice to make sauce. Whisk in cream cheese, milk and chives until smooth.

    1 T butter
    2 T lemon juice
    5 T whipped cream cheese
    1 T milk
    1 T chopped fresh chives

    **note: this recieved 5/5 stars from reviewers. One reviewer mentioned they tried it using filet mignon instead of chicken and that it was exceptional.**
