Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Servings: 4 people
An easy recipe for chicken breast stuffed with asparagus. It's a healthy dish that's low carb and AIP paleo friendly.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt. Set aside.
Pound each chicken breast with a mallet to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste.
Place 3 asparagus spears in the middle of each flattened chicken breast. Wrap chicken meat around the asparagus and secure with toothpicks. Arrange stuffed chicken in a baking pan then olive oil mixture evenly over the stuffed chicken.
Bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes until chicken is fully cooked. Remove toothpicks prior to serving.
A few ways to change up the recipe:
- Chicken can be topped with cream cheese or provolone cheese before wrapping around asparagus.
- A low carb "breading" made with seasoned almond flour or crushed pork rinds can be used to coat the chicken.
- Each piece can be wrapped in bacon slices.
- Marinara sauce can be used in place of the dressing and then topped with mozzarella cheese.
