GETTING READY:

1. Clean and prepare the chicken pieces. Season to taste. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

MAKING:

3. Preheat a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat with 3 tablespoons of oil.

4. Brown the chicken on each side, about 4 to 6 minutes, until it’s completely cooked. Once done, set aside to rest.

5. Still over medium-high heat, add 2 to 3 more tablespoons of oil and sauté the mushrooms and onions until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.

6. Add the seasoning to taste, asparagus and garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Remove and place the vegetables on a plate.

7. Melt the butter and add the flour to the skillet. Stir and lightly brown for about 3 to 5 minutes.

8. Whisk in the chicken stock and half & half. Turn the heat down to medium, season to taste, and simmer for 5 minutes.

9. Add the balsamic vinegar. The sauce will thicken. Turn off the heat.

10. Chop the chicken.

11. Bring another large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of salt to the boiling water.

12. Cook the pasta for about half of the recommended cooking time on the package.

13. Stir in the vegetables, chicken, parsley and pasta into the sauce.

14. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or just until the cheese is melted.

SERVING:

15 Serve hot. Enjoy.
