When choosing asparagus, the skinnier the stalks, the more tender they will be.
Steam asparagus until tender. Preheat oven to 375˚, cook chicken for 25-30 or until 165˚. Combine the asparagus and chicken and pulse a couple of times in a blender, food processor or finely chop together.
For cheese sauce: Melt butter, quickly whisk in flour and slowly add the milk while continuing to whisk. Bring to a boil and continue to stir until sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in cheese and any seasoning. Mix with the chicken asparagus blend.
