How to Make Asparagus & Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees

    Grease an 8x8” baking dish
  2. lace each chicken breast between 2 sheets of heavy plastic on a level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even thickness of 1/4”. Sprinkle each side with salt & pepper.
  3. Place 4 spears of asparagus down the center of the chicken breast and spread about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese over the asparagus. Repeat with the other chicken breast, and roll the chicken around the asparagus and cheese to make a tidy compact rol. Place the rolls seam side down in the prepared baking dish and sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear when pricked with a fork about 25 minutes. An instant read thermometer inserted should read 165 degrees
