Ingredients And Procedures

4 Boneless chicken breasts

1 tb Fresh lemon juice

1 ts Salt; optional

1/2 ts Pepper; fresh ground

1/2 ts Grated lemon zest

3/4 lb Fresh asparagus; trimmed

1 tb Olive oil

2 ts Seasoned dry bread crumbs

4 Slices low-fat turkey ham

8 Lemon slices; for garnish

In med. bowl, combine chicken, lemon juice, 1/2 of the salt, pepper and lemon zest. Toss to mix. On a large flat plate, coat the chicken with the seasoned bread crumbs. Spray Pam on a non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown outside and white throughout (but still juicy--about 5-7 minutes). Place chicken on a serving platter. Meanwhile, steam the fresh asparagus for approx. 5-7 minutes. When done, season the asparagus with the remaining lemon zest and salt and pepper. Divide asparagus into 4 bundles. Wrap each asparagus bundle with a slice of the turkey "ham" and place on top of chicken. Garnish with lemon slices.
