 Throw this one into the trashy-eats category.  From "Betty Crocker's Cookbook, New and Revised Edition including Microwave recipes".  I made some of my own modifications, though.

CHICKEN-ASPARAGUS BAKE
1 package (10 ounces) frozen cut asparagus
1 package (3 ounces) smoked sliced chicken or turkey, cut up
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
1 cup shredded process american cheese
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Quick Cheese sauce (recipe below)

Cook asparagus as directed on package; drain.  Arrange asparagus in ungreased square baking dish, 8x8x2 inches.  Arrange chicken on asparagus; sprinkle with marjoram and sage.  Mix cheese, milk, and eggs.  Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; spread over chicken.  Cook uncovered in 350* oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.  Serve with Quick Cheese Sauce.  6 SERVINGS.

QUICK CHEESE SAUCE
1 can (11 ounces) condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Heat ingredients just to boiling, stirring frequently.

The modifications I made were: I used fresh asparagus instead of frozen.  9 oz of smoked turkey deli meat instead of 3 oz.  I omitted the marjoram and used a sprinkle of rosemary and garlic instead.  I omitted the dry mustard from the cheese sauce and used a lot of lemon pepper instead, and stirred a little of the grated cheese I had left and an egg into the cheese sauce.  

I had this for dinner last night and it was pretty good, though I'm sure quite fattening.
