Oh my, these are so yummy! The sesame ginger marinade really gave this chicken great flavor. We made sure to add it to the chicken while cooking like Paula suggested and basting it just added to the great flavor. The bacon had a nice smoked flavor and the asparagus is tender yet still had a nice crunch. Delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 5 stalk(s)
    asparagus per serving

  • 1 bottle
    sesame ginger marinade (or whatever you prefer)

How to Make Asparagus Chicken Wraps

Step-by-Step

  1. Pound chicken breasts to 1/4" thickness. Place in gallon ziploc bag and pour in marinade. Let sit in fridge at least 3 hours (or up to 24). Rinse and dry asparagus.
  2. A half hour before making wraps, set out bacon to soften for easier wrapping. Gather 5 springs of asparagus and wrap with chicken breast. Hold together and wrap 2 slices of bacon around chicken breast and asparagus, securing with a toothpick (once you get the hang of it, only one toothpick is needed). Place on indirect heat, lay down heavy foil or oven liner on grill. Cook over medium heat, turning carefully with tongs as not to unravel the wraps. Bacon will become crispy. Cook until asparagus is tender and chicken is done, about 45 minutes. I had an extra bottle of marinade, so I heated it and brushed them while cooking, saving the rest for extra sauce if anyone wanted it.
  3. When done, I've melted a piece of provolone cheese on the top!
