Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 2
Asparagus (about 10 spears), trimmed and cut in half ½ bunch

Reduced-fat mayonnaise 2 tablespoons
Fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon
Curry powder, depending on taste 1/8-¼ teaspoon

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way full with water and bring to a boil. Boil chicken until tender, about 20 minutes. Let chicken cool and shred by hand. Set aside.
  3. While chicken is boiling, mix together soup, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and curry powder, then set aside.
  4. Spread asparagus on the bottom of a 1.5-quart casserole dish. Arrange chicken on top of asparagus, and pour the soup mixture over the top.
  5. Sprinkle the casserole with cheese and bread crumbs, drizzle melted butter over the top, and bake at 350ºF for 30-35 minutes, until crisp and bubbly. Cover with foil if it starts to get too brown.
