Ingredients

-about 12 thin asparagus spears
-2 chicken breasts (skinless/boneless) boiled, broiled, grilled or roasted, chop them up into bite size pieces.
-chopped mushrooms (about 3/4 of a cup)
-1 cup of mixed grated cheeses of your liking (I personally love to use mozzarella, provolone, and jack cheese for this dish)

FOR THE SAUCE:

-2 Tbs. Flour
-2 Tbs. butter
-1 1/2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
-1/2 cup heavy cream (you can substitute the chicken broth and heavy cream with 2 cups of whole milk)
-1/4 tsp. of white pepper (salt to taste)
-about a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg


-Melt the butter on low to medium heat and slowly whisk in the flour for about 2 minutes or until fragrant. (constantly whisk the butter & flour together to prevent them from forming lumps)


-slowly and gradually whisk in the whole milk (or the chicken broth & the heavy cream)


-keep whisking until thickened


-add the nutmeg/pepper/salt (blend them all evenly) set aside and cool.


-cut the asparagus spears into small bite size pieces, leaving about 6 spears uncut to use for decoration


-spray the bottom of a baking dish (preferably a round one) with cooking spray


-line the bottom of the dish with the chicken, mushrooms, & asparagus pieces (salt to taste)


-top with half of the cheese mixture and spread the white sauce (bechamel sauce) over the chicken & cheese mixture.


-top it again with the 2nd half of the cheese mix and decorate (flowershape) the top with the six asparagus spears left behind :-)

This looks really yummy, but there's no time or temp.
