Take advantage of in season produce with this AMAZING Asparagus Stuffed chicken Recipe! Tender, juicy, and packed with cheese – this is a great dinner recipe!
I wanted to create a fresh recipe that really showcased some of the amazing produce I had to chose from this last week.
The asparagus was just calling my name. It is so pretty and so simple to cook.
Typically, we like to saute 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.
Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Recipe
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!
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!
