Pesto Chicken and Asparagus

I don't know what happened to my kids... The first few times that I served them asparagus, they were all over it! They loved the taste and gobbled it up like nobody's business. Now all of a sudden they are boycotting it.. I don't know, but I still like it and they are stuck with eating at least a little of it every time that I serve it! :) I liked that this meal and it was once again a quick one that only used 1 pan - that is definitely a plus when I am chief cook AND bottle washer since Josh has been gone so much lately!!

Pesto Chicken and Asparagus
(recipe found in Taste of Home)

1 pound cubed boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound cut asparagus (1" pieces)
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup prepared pesto
1/8 teaspoon pepper

In a large skillet, saute chicken in oil until no longer pink. Remove and set aside. In the same skillet, saute asparagus until crisp tender. Stir in whipping cream, pesto and pepper. Return chicken to pan; heat through. Serve over cooked couscous.
