Crunchy crust, cheesy moist chicken, and tender asparagus. Ingredients for a great recipe. My family loves these. I have also taken them to potluck and they were very well received.

You can also switch the cheese to whatever you prefer. I have also added a slice of deli ham to these. Sooo good!

I hope you try them.
