Few things go together as well as chicken and asparagus, so we thought, “Why keep them apart at all?!” Instead, we’re stuffing that asparagus into some chicken breasts – along with some provolone cheese and spices – for a dish that’s a whole meal in and of itself.
Of course, that doesn’t stop us from adding some additional sides— and it shouldn’t stop you, either! Make it a feast and serve up this Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken with roasted potatoes and cherry tomatoes, like we did, or with your favorite chicken-complementing veggie sides.
We first sear the stuffed chicken quickly to seal in that flavor and give it a perfect golden-brown color. Then it goes into the oven for a quick roast for perfectly-cooked, juicy meat, melty cheese, and lovely asparagus. Use a oven-safe pan to cut down on dishes, or transfer to a baking dish after searing if your pans won’t survive your oven.
Don’t be scared, either; this dish is surely impressive, but it’s also totally easy. (It’s ready in only 30 minutes, after all!) You can also make it easier on yourself by securing your stuffed chicken with toothpicks before you sear. Just remember to take them out before you eat!
