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!
