Crumbed chicken breast with asparagus

Ingredients

  • 4 Skinless boneless chicken breasts about 1 1/2 lb.
  • 1 Tsp Italian seasoning mix
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 12 Asparagus stalks end trimmed
  • 1 oz Sun-dried Tomatoes chopped
  • 4 slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Preparations

    step 1

    Preheat your oven to 400 F.

    step 2

    Place the chicken on a clean chopping board and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

    step 3

    Start cutting each one lengthwise to create the pockets. Be careful not to cut all the way through.

    step 4

    Add 3 sprigs of asparagus and a couple of pieces of sun-dried tomatoes to a mozzarella slice, then roll it to hold them inside. Stuff the chicken breasts with it.

    step 5

    Close the pocket with a toothpick. Heat oil in a large and cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

    step 6

    Add in the chicken and sear it until nicely golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side.

    step 7

    Bake the chicken for 15-20 minutes, or until it is cooked through and no longer pink in the inside. Enjoy!
