“This has become my favorite chicken dish. You can change the flavor by experimenting with different herbs and spices. My favorite combination is minced garlic, crumbled dried basil leaves, fresh ground coarse black pepper and fine sea salt.”
1 stuffed breast

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place breast between two sheets of wax paper and gently pound with the side of a glass until it is at least 1 1/2 times its original size
  2. Lay a few strings of the cheese across the center of the breast, then place asparagus tips on the cheese. Lay a few more strings of cheese over the asparagus.
  3. Roll the chicken breast up around the cheese and asparagus. I usually skewer the ends with a toothpick - just remember to pull it out before serving.
  4. Lay remaining cheese strings in a crisscross pattern across the top. Sprinkle with herbs and spices.
  5. Lightly spray baking dish with olive oil and place the stuffed breast in the center of the dish. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Serve with a side salad and enjoy!
