I intended to use vegetable broth instead of chicken, but I was out, so I added some vegetable soup, complete with carrots, potatoes, onions and peas. It made it really yummy! Also, I sauteed the aspragus with garlic first. I added turmeric, garlic pepper, shallot salt & fresh ground black pepper - 1/11/09
