  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Spread the chicken breast tenderloins on the baking sheet and sprinkle with garlic salt and seasoned salt.
  4. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. Set aside; when cool enough to handle, cut tenderloins into bite-size pieces.
  5. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water, bring to a boil, and stir in penne. Cook pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until penne are cooked through but still slightly firm, about 11 minutes; drain.
  6. Transfer penne back to cooking pot and stir in butter and Parmesan cheese until pasta is coated.
  7. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; place asparagus into the hot oil and sprinkle with garlic salt. Cook and stir until asparagus are tender, about 7 minutes.
  8. Transfer penne pasta into a large serving bowl and top with asparagus and chicken tenderloin pieces. Lightly mix asparagus and chicken into the pasta to serve.

Save a step - cook your asparagus with your pasta. Just throw it in the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain and add butter, Parmesan, chicken (I used leftover from a rotisserie), and I also added a...

I made this dish and it was wonderful! I made it according to the recipe but added sauteed mushrooms and it also needed a little milk/cream to make a bit of sauce. It was wonderful.

As I write this review my husband is having his third serving. That definitely earns five stars. I chose to saute the chicken as it was already too warm in my kitchen to warrant turning on the ...

Delicious and easy! I did add a little more olive oil to the pasta- overall a gret easy healthy dish will make again!

This is such an easy and delicious recipe! I didn't have any asparagus handy, so I used green and yellow beans and cut them down to bite size. I had whole wheat rotini pasta, so I use that too. ...

This recipe sounds good, but I wasn't thrilled with the results. It was quick and easy though. Just slightly bland and a bit boring. I even added tomatoes and real garlic and it still lacked a l...
