Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

Tried it! Loved it! Will make it again!

Ingredients
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • salt and pepper
  • 9 to 12 asparagus stalks, trimmed
  • 3 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut the chicken breast in half, length-wise, leaving it intact on one side (creating a pocket to stuff). Season the inside of the chicken breast with salt and pepper and a pinch of lemon zest. Lay the provolone cheese and 3 to 4 stalks of asparagus in the center of each chicken breast and fold over, enclosing the filling.
  3. Season the outside of the chicken breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  4. Heat a large, oven safe skillet (I use cast iron) over medium-high heat and add the 1 tbsp olive oil, swirling around to coat the bottom of the skillet. Cook the chicken top side down, for 3 to 5 minutes, until the chicken easily releases from the pan and is golden brown on top. Flip the chicken over and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes to sear the bottom side. Carefully cover the skillet with tinfoil and place in the preheated oven. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 155 degrees.
  5. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and let sit, covered, for about 5 minutes. The temperature of the chicken should rise to meet 160 degrees and will be super tender and juicy! Enjoy!
Notes
If you do not have an oven safe skillet, use a regular skillet and then transfer chicken breast to a baking dish and cover with foil before placing in oven.

Sugar Cookies















  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on powdered sugar surface 1/2 inch thick. (I roll out on parchment paper) Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Caramel Dip

  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 1½ cups brown sugar (light or dark)
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk, stirring to combine. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a light bubbly boil.  Remove from heat right away and add the vanilla. Stir to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature with apple slices and pretzels or drizzle over ice cream.
Notes
Don't let the caramel come to a full, rolling boil. Just let it get nice and bubbly and then take it off the heat. It will get too hard and thick to scoop if you cook it too long.
