Asparagus and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken

Sometimes I go to the grocery store and buy vegetables that I have no idea how to cook.

This week, that vegetable was asparagus.

I’ve eaten asparagus before, but never prepared it myself.

Those pointy tops can be intimidating…

I decided the best thing to do was to steam it and then stuff it inside some chicken with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella.

Asparagus and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

One bunch asparagus (some for stuffing, some for eating on the side)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Prosciutto (I used Applegate Farms brand)

fresh mozzarella (I used 2 small balls, sliced in half¬† in each piece of chicken…)

The directions are pretty easy.¬† Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly steam the asparagus–you want it bright green, but not mushy.

Butterfly each chicken breast and fill with a slice of prosciutto, some asparagus and mozzarella.

Close the chicken breast and secure with a toothpick or two. Place the stuffed chicks in a baking dish and cook for 35 to 40 minutes.

We ate ours with a side of asparagus. Delicious.

Have you ever bought a veggie or food item at the store without knowing how to cook it? Please do share…
