Chicken Asparagus Bake

Tender chicken breasts are mixed with fresh asparagus, onions, cheese, and more to create an appetizing and super easy creamy chicken asparagus bake. This casserole is easily one of my favorite asparagus recipes! 

Chicken Asparagus Bake - Easily one of my favourite casserole dishes! It's loaded with asparagus, chicken, creamy curry sauce and smothered in cheese and sliced almonds.

This chicken and asparagus bake is loaded with comforting, cheesy, and savoury flavours that create the ultimate creamy chicken casserole. A little healthier than most due to the sliced almonds, this baked chicken and asparagus is a great way to satisfy the craving for a hearty casserole.

I love this recipe because it is an incredibly easy way to introduce a little bit of asparagus to your kids without it being too asparagus-heavy. Shredded cheddar cheese, chicken, and the yummy sauce coat the asparagus to make it like it is not even there!

    • Asparagus: I steam my fresh bushel of asparagus and chop it into small one-inch pieces for this casserole. The asparagus adds the perfect amount of crunch.
    • Onions: Either a yellow or white onion can be used for this recipe in the base. You will also need green onions for the topping! 
    • Chicken: Cooked boneless, skinless, chicken breasts are cut into smaller pieces and mixed throughout the yummy creamy sauce. Leftover cooked chicken will also work for this asparagus and chicken bake, too.
    • Flour: All-purpose flour is used to mix with the sauce. 
    • Chicken Broth: Savory chicken broth adds richness and plenty of flavor to this recipe. You can also use vegetable broth. 
    • Italian Dressing: Your favorite type of Italian salad dressing is great for this recipe and adds total brightness that is well worth it. 
    • Lemon Juice: Fresh citrus is a must for this recipe to make it truly stand out. Asparagus and lemon are perfect together!
    • Curry Powder: Rich and warm curry powder adds just enough spice to this bake to make it filled with aromatic comforting flavors. 
    • Salt: Sea salt is all you need! 
    • Cheese: Cheddar cheese allows this asparagus bake to be cheesy and delicious. Grate your own cheddar cheese for the best flavors.
      Almonds: Sliced almonds are used in place of breadcrumbs or crushed crackers to give this recipe a healthier twist.

    • Saucepan with Cover: This one quart saucepan is the perfect size for making bases and sauces. I love it because it is nonstick and great for a variety of different recipes.
    • Measuring Cups and Spoons: I love these stainless steel measuring cups and spoons because they are easy to clean, use, and create the best results every time.

    How To Make It

    1. First, spread the cooked chopped asparagus to the bottom of a 9×13 casserole pan. Top the asparagus with chopped onions and spread the cooked chicken cubes over the asparagus and onions making sure everything is evenly dispersed.
    2. In a saucepan on the stovetop, mix the flour with a little bit of chicken broth to create a roux. Whisk until no more lumps remain in the mixture.
    3. Next, add the rest of the chicken broth, Italian dressing, lemon juice, curry powder, and salt. Heat everything until the mixture boils and thickens.
    4. Pour the sauce over the chicken and asparagus making sure the entire surface is covered.
    5. Top the mixture with the shredded cheese and sliced almonds. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for twenty minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    6. Remove the foil and bake the asparagus bake for ten more minutes. Top the baked casserole with sliced green onions if desired.

    • Shredded rotisserie chicken will work in place of the chicken breasts.
