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.

How to Make Chicken / Asparagus Bundles

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Flatten the chicken breasts with a meat mallet between plastic wrap to 1/4 inch thickness. Salt and pepper the chicken.
  2. In the following order, dredge each chicken breast: melted butter, flour, egg, then bread crumbs.
  3. Place asparagus spears in the center of the chicken, add about 2 tbsp shredded cheese.

    Wrap chicken around filling and hold together with toothpick. Place them in a glass baking dish.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160.
  5. For the sauce:


    While the chicken is baking, melt the butter in a small sauce pan. When melted, add flour and whisk making sure you don't have any lumps.
    Add the cream and cook until sauce thickens and lumps are worked out.

    Reduce the heat and add the tarragon. If the sauce becomes too thick, just add a little more cream.
