Asparagus stuffed Chicken breast!
Asparagus is one vegetable which I have read a lot about and seen a lot but never really tried. Recently I finally tried it and decided to start slow and incorporate it in a main dish and I was so happy I did it coz it was really nice.
4 chicken breast pound thin.
4 stems asparagus steamed
1/2 red bell pepper sliced thin and steamed
1/2 yellow bell pepper sliced thin and steamed
2/3 cup goat cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tbsp EVOO
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Start by pounding the chicken breast thin and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Cook the veggies by steaming them al dente.If the asparagus spears are too long divide them into two halves.
Place the halved asparagus, pepper and about a tbsp of goat cheese, roll and tie it with a kitchen twine.
Bake in the oven on a pan with non stick cooking spray for about 30- 40 minutes.
Serve it with a white sauce, this is actually just a rue but I made it with whole wheat flour with the remaining goat cheese,about 2 tbsp of dry white wine and red chilli flakes.
The Asparagus on top of the chicken is my mom's addition.It was sauted with S & P with garlic.
Since this was my first try with asparagus I would be glad to hear about any suggestions!
