Easy dinner recipe are always trending here on One Sweet Appetite. This spring I wanted to create a fresh recipe that really showcased some of the amazing produce you can find in your local grocer.

The first veggie to catch my eye? Asparagus! The vibrant green stood out in the crowd and I just couldn’t help myself. 

Typically, we like to saute asparagus with a little butter and garlic or bake it with some olive oil, salt and pepper. It is a great spring vegetable that will really compliment any meal. BUT this time I wanted to do something special. Enter the:

Cheesy Asparagus Chicken Dinner

This vegetable is so versatile. It pairs amazingly well with the chicken and cheese which makes it a TOP recipe here at One Sweet Appetite.

It even has the stamp of approval from my very picky 9 year old. Which means it is permanently in our rotation as an easy weeknight dinner recipe!

Ingredients for this recipe:

  • Mayonnaise- Regular ol’ mayo. Try not to substitute with Miracle Whip for this specific recipe. 
  • Dijon mustard- Surprisingly one of our favorite toppings for baked chicken. It always adds a wonderful punch of flavor. 
  • Italian seasoning- Alternatively, you could make your own with 1/4 teaspoon each of dried basil, thyme, rosemary, and oregano. 
  • Lemon- You want to buy an actual lemon so you can take advantage of both the zest and juice.
  • Chicken breast- Trimmed and pounded to 1/4 inch thickness. 
  • Cheese- Provolone!! 
  • Ham – I always reach for Boars Head ham, sliced at the deli counter. Not sponsored. Just one of our go-to brands that tastes incredible. 
  • Asparagus- Fresh, not frozen! 
  • Breadcrumbs- Regular or Italian seasoned both taste good with this chicken dinner.

The dish turned out so much better then I had hoped. I was worried about the creamy sauce getting a little too brown and the cheese leaking out of the side. While there was a little bit of escaped cheese, a majority stayed in place.

Not only was this simple to whip up but it looked pretty impressive as well! I like to think of it as a more fancy version of a chicken cordon blue. The sauce gives it such a nice tang. I will be whipping this up the next time we have company for sure!

How to make asparagus stuffed chicken:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees and line a baking dish with foil. Set that aside for later.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise, dijon, seasoning, zest, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. To flatten your chicken simply place in a large Ziploc bag and pound with the bottom of a large pan. Layer the chicken, cheese, ham, and asparagus. Roll tightly and place on your prepared baking dish. Brush a generous amount of the sauce onto your chicken and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until you chicken is cooked through.
