1/4 cup butter, divided
2 whole chicken breasts (skinned, boned and cut into thin strips)

1 cup cooked asparagus pieces
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1 teaspoon dried tarragon (or 1-tablespoon fresh, minced)

Over low heat, melt 2-tablespoons butter in large skillet. Saute chicken pieces until cooked throughout.
