Asparagus Stuffed Chicken
4
20 minutes
25 minutes
45 minutes
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
12 asparagus stalks, trimmed
2 teaspoons salt, divided
2 teaspoons ground black pepper, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
One by one, place the chicken breasts inside a large resealable bag. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound the chicken breast until it's an even thickness of about 1/4-inch thick. Remove and set aside on a plate or other work surface.
Once you've pounded all the chicken breasts, place four stalks of asparagus along the edge of each. Using one teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of ground black pepper, sprinkle the asparagus and the inside of each chicken breast with seasoning.
Tightly roll the chicken breasts around the asparagus and place seam-side down on the baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil over each chicken breast. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper.
Place chicken breasts in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, until the asparagus is tender and the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
