Chicken Asparagus and Goat Cheese Roll-Ups- only 6 ingredients needed to make this healthy meal. It's a great spring recipe for when asparagus is in season.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut into each chicken breast lengthwise to butterfly, being careful not to cut into the opposite side.
Place each breast one at a time in a large ziplock bag and flatten with a heavy rolling pin or cast iron pan until even thickness.
Or you can place them between two layers of plastic wrap and flatten them all at once.
In a bowl, stir together the goat cheese and peppers.
Spread mixture evenly onto chicken breasts.
Place 4 asparagus spears crosswise across each chicken breast. Roll each one up and secure with toothpicks.
Sprinkle the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper.
Heat oil and butter in a large oven-proof skillet, either cast iron or stainless steel.
Add chicken and cook until browned on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. I like to try and always keep the seam at an angle instead of placing it directly down. This helps keep the cheese from seeping out.
Transfer to oven for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
