  1. The combination of the buttermilk and those wonderful herbs make this a delicious recipe. It just looks awesome and one that we would really enjoy! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday, have a great week end and come back soon!

    1. I cooked the asparagus on the grill drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice just after the chicken was done for about 5 minutes 🙂

  2. I’m new at the whole cooking thing so: – if I’m freezing them, I freeze them uncooked and then cook them? Is
    there a way to freeze them after cooking them instead? (I’m thinking of the toddler chicken bites from the May 2012 baby menu). – approximately how long will these take to cook?Thanks!

    1. Yes you freeze them uncooked and thaw and then cook. You can freeze them after cooking if you’d like then just reheat. See directions for cooking time.

  3. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try this recipe tonight!Quick question – Why do you say “So in this recipe you’d use 1/2 tablespoon with 1/2 cup milk” when the ingredient list calls for 1 cup of buttermilk.Unfortunately, I don’t have any buttermilk on hand, so I wanted to double-check with you if I should use 1/2 or 1 cup of buttermilk substitute.Thank you,

      1. Thanks Kelly!
        Just wanted to make sure I didn’t mess anything up…. which I do quite frequently when it comes to recipes!
        I can’t wait to try it!
        Thanks again!

  4. I like the premise of making one-serving meals for seniors. The problem with the recipes is that there are no directions for thawing/cooking in one step like a TV dinner.We must assume that the senior is not a cook and/or is not capable of multi-step preparations. They need to thaw/warm by throwing the meal in the microwave, setting the time (hopefully not a combination of times and cooking levels), and having it be ready. Saying “thaw” and then “warm up” doesn’t help them. Please consider adding microwave thaw/warm instructions to the recipes so they truly are ready to go when the senior gets them out of the freezer.Thanks,Malcolm
