How to Cook Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

While there are many ways to prepare chicken, it does tend to become monotonous. This recipe takes only 10 minutes to prep but it’s presentation is striking and definitely inspired for company.

How to Make This

To make my Asparagus Stuffed Chicken:

  1. Season: Cut a slit lengthwise down the center of each chicken breast and season the chicken on both sides. 
  2. Stuff: Place two halves of provolone cheese into the pocket, top with monterey jack cheese, followed by asparagus spears.
  3. Sear & Bake: Sear the chicken breasts on each side, and then place them back face up in the skillet. Bake the chicken breasts in the skillet at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through. 

How Long to Cook Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

While the prep of Asparagus Stuffed Chicken is simple, it does take approximately 40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through to complete the dish. 

Why make Asparagus Stuffed Chicken?

Especially on weekends, I love a restaurant-quality dish that looks like it took a long time in prep but didn’t. I try to make weekends special and family and friend oriented. 

A restaurant-quality dishes can not only be expensive but I never really know what is in the dish. A recipe like this allows me to bring a top notch presentation and control the ingredients. 

This also makes a good meal prep dish for the week. I throw a couple extra on when cooking to help me have a couple of low-effort lunches during the upcoming week. I simply reheat and eat!
