Ingredients

2 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

salt and black pepper to taste

8 asparagus spears, trimmed - divided

Steps

Step 1

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Place 4 spears of asparagus down the center of a chicken breast, and spread about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese over the asparagus. Repeat with the other chicken breast, and roll the chicken around the asparagus and cheese to make a tidy, compact roll. Place the rolls seam sides down in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs.

Step 4

Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear when pricked with a fork, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
