Every now and then, I have the urge to cook up a fancy meal. It can be hard to change up the dinner menu or add new dishes when you are cooking for a little kid. Especially one who wants to live off mac and cheese. But this past weekend I made asparagus and cheese stuffed chicken breasts and they were AMAZING.
Prep time was under 10 minutes and only took about 15 minutes to cook. Yay for under 30 minutes dinners! Served with brown rice and you are set for a delicious meal.
How to make asparagus stuffed chicken breasts:
3 large chicken breasts
3 slices cheddar cheese
9 asparagus stalks, trimmed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
minced red bell peppers
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Cut the chicken breast in half to create a pocket.
Add the asparagus and cheese, fold over.
Add all season together in bowl and then sprinkle mixture over the chicken breast.
Place in over and bake for 20 minutes.
