Ingredients

  • 4 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices bacon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400º Line baking sheet with heavy-duty foil.

  2. Pound out of the chicken to approximately 1/2" thickness. Place chicken and pesto in medium bowl; toss to coat.

  3. Cut asparagus to the approximate size of the chicken roll (so that the asparagus will not peep out too much from the end).

  4. Place olive oil and Italian seasoning in a shallow pan or ziplock bag and toss asparagus until coated well.

  5. Place 3 asparagus spears and top of the chicken with parmesan cheese. Roll chicken around asparagus and wrap each roll with a bacon strip (2 if necessary to get good coverage).

  6. Place, seam side down, in a lined pan.

  7. Bake, uncovered, at 400ºF for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear.

  8. Broil 6 inches from the heat for 3-5 minutes or until bacon is crisped.
