Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breasts

My daughter, affectionately known as The Runt, is a freshman in college. When I moved her into the dorm, I was so pleased to see that there was an Earth Fare (a healthy grocery store with several locations throughout the Southeastern US) within walking distance of her dorm. She opted out of the over-priced campus meal plan in favor of cooking her own meals and that has worked out pretty well.

One of her new favorites is called a Chicken Roller. It’s a ready-to-cook chicken breast stuffed with various goodies. They are sold at Earth Fare’s fresh meat counter. The Runt cooks them on her indoor grill and loves to try out the different varieties.

When The Runt comes home, she craves her mommy’s cooking and, on a recent visit, she asked me to make the Chicken Rollers. This recipe is my version of that meal.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Two cups of panko crumbs
Two tablespoons of Grill Mate’s Chicken Seasoning
Twelve asparagus spears
Four slices of havarti cheese

Combine the panko crumbs and the Grill Mate’s seasoning in a flat dish large enough to hold the chicken.

Pound the chicken breasts flat and press one side of them into the panko crumbs. Top each one with a slice of cheese and three asparagus spears. Roll each piece of chicken tightly (with the panko crumbs on the outside) and use one or two toothpicks to hold together.

I cooked mine on the indoor grill for about 15 minutes. You can also cook them in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes or so.
