Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6-8 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 4 slices of provolone or Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 1 lemon, sliced for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Place each chicken breast between plastic wrap and gently pound them to an even thickness.
    • Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
  3. Assemble the Chicken:
    • Lay 2 slices of cheese on each chicken breast.
    • Place 3-4 asparagus spears on top of the cheese.
    • Carefully roll up each chicken breast, securing with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. Sear the Chicken:
    • In an oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
    • Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown.
  5. Bake in the Oven:
    • If your skillet is oven-safe, transfer it directly to the preheated oven. Otherwise, transfer the chicken to a baking dish.
    • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the juices run clear.
  6. Optional: Broil for Crispy Top (Optional):
    • If you’d like a crispy top, you can broil the chicken for an additional 2-3 minutes, watching closely to prevent burning.
  7. Serve:
    • Remove the toothpicks before serving.
    • Optionally, sprinkle Italian seasoning over the top and garnish with lemon slices.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Serve your asparagus-stuffed chicken breasts with your favorite side dishes and enjoy!
