Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Grease an 8x8 (or larger) baking dish.
  3. Place each breast in a 1 gallon storage bag on a solid, flat surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even thickness of about 1/4" to 3/8". Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.
  4. Wrap 4-6 asparagus spears with Prosciutto, then carefully wrap that with Provolone. Wrap the chicken breast around the asparagus, provolone, prosciutto roll to make a compact roll. Place the rolls, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle each with a generous amount of the bread crumbs. Cover asparagus tips with a small piece of tin foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear (about 50 minutes). Place one additional piece of prosciutto and 2-3 pieces of provolone on top of the chicken. Continue to bake for 10 additional minutes.
  6. You now have a beautifully presented piece of gorgeously tasting art. This completed work will serve 2-4, depending on your appetite.
  7. Serve with cannellini bean, tomato side dish (1 can cannellini, 1 can petite diced tomatoes, 1 tsp sage, 1 tsp oregano, and 1/2 onion) slow cooked for 30 minutes.
  8. Delicious - I hope you enjoy.
