The asparagus stuffed chicken is one of my favorite easy-to-make meals.

Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s very easy to make and does not inquire many ingredients plus, its look is amazing!

How to Make Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast?

To make this amazing meal, we start first by butterflying our chicken breasts.

I was also impressed by this word when I first heard it. In other words, slice the chicken breast horizontally until it opens like a book.

The stuffing is made of cheese, and basically, you can choose any cheese you want, but I prefer mozzarella or cheddar cheese.

After that, we add stalks of asparagus. At first, we are going to cook it in the skillet and then take it to the oven.

For more flavor, you can wrap the chicken breasts with bacon.

What we love about chicken meals is that you have various options for the side dishes you can choose from.

It could be any basic salad, just the classic rice, and my favorite is garlicky parmesan sweet potatoes. Ah, such a delight!

How to Store Stuffed Chicken Breasts?

I know sometimes we just cook more than we usually eat because sometimes we are hungry or just want to store it for a meal the following day.

You can simply store the leftover in airtight containers and keep them in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days.

When you take it out, reheat it in 350F preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

You can also reheat it using a microwave, but I do not recommend that as the texture of the chicken becomes unpleasantly rubbery.

Tips:

  • To make the perfect cut of the chicken breast, place it on the cutting board, place one hand on top of it, and cut horizontally.
  • To ensure that the chicken breast won’t open while cooking, uses toothpicks to secure them.
  • To ensure the chicken is well-cooked, insert a knife in the thickest part and cut three-quarters of the way through the middle.

Now we will discover all the ingredients and steps you need to do to make this delicious healthy meal.
