Notes

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.
