    1. In a large bowl, mix the teriyaki sauce and wine. Place chicken in the bowl and coat with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour (it is best if you can marinate overnight).
    2. Preheat oven to 190C.
    3. Discard marinade and arrange chicken breasts in a baking dish. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven until almost done.
    4. Place the asparagus in a pot fitted with a steamer basket over 3cm boiling water and steam 5 minutes until tender.
    5. Place 4 asparagus spears on each chicken breast and top each breast with a slice of Swiss cheese. Return to oven and continue baking 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear.

    This is an instant hit that is sooo easy to prepare. I only changed it a little, adding a few chopped garlic cloves and a little lemon juice to the marinade. I also use thin sliced chicken breasts and drizzle warm Kikkoman's Teriyaki Baste and Glaze on top. Looks like it came out of a 5 star resturaunt!  -  18 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was sooo good. My husband really loved it. I added chopped garlic and a little soy sauce to the marinade. I also seasoned my chicken and asparagus. The key is to use a wine that you love and let it marinate as long as you can.  -  10 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Quite tasty and very easy. I did not have teriyaki sauce so made my own.  -  11 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
