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

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.


15 Serve hot. Enjoy.
