Chicken breast fillets with creamy polenta and roasted asparagus

Asparagus is the queen of the spring kitchen – rich in nutrients, and at the same time extremely tasty and versatile in preparation.

There are three types of asparagus – white, green, and purple. White asparagus grows underground and is often associated with French cuisine. They have a very delicate and sensitive taste and are often more expensive than green asparagus, which grows above ground. Green asparagus has a slightly stronger taste and texture and is usually prepared on the grill or in a pan. Purple asparagus is the rarest and most expensive, and their peculiarity is in the color that disappears when cooked.

Preparing asparagus is very simple, they can be served with sauces, side dishes, or as a standalone dish. Besides being delicious, asparagus is also very healthy. They are low in calories and contain many nutrients such as fiber, folic acid, vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium. Also, asparagus contains numerous antioxidants and is considered an excellent food in the fight against inflammation and oxidative stress.

With this green queen of spring, Perfektno pile and I decided to combine #MeđimurskoPile as a quality choice for this spring snack because, in addition to the “Antibiotic-free” certificate, Perutnina Ptuj PIPO Čakovec has received another mark “Proven Quality – Croatia” with which it guarantees the highest quality standards and confirms its commitment to high production standards.
