  1. Can I make this with chicken breast instead of thighs?

  2. Looks delicious. I would personally wait until the last 5-10 minutes of cooking to add the asparagus, depending on the size.

    You’re so cute! I enjoy watching you and I have tried several of your recipes and loved them!!

  4. Love this recipe! I used chicken breasts instead since the store didn’t have thighs but it still turned out great. I also didn’t put the asparagus in until I flipped the chicken because we like ours a little crispier.
