- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- 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.

- 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.
- 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.
