Servings 4 People
- 1 Lb Chicken Breast (about 4 small breasts)
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Sea salt
- 4 tsp Honey mustard
- 3 Oz Provolone cheese (4 thick slices)
- 8 Stalks of asparagus, trimmed to fit in the chicken
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Slice the chicken breasts almost all the way in half, but keeping them still intact, so that each can chicken can fold open. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning, garlic powder and a pinch of salt on the inside of each breast (no need to measure.) Sprinkle just the Italian seasoning on the outside of the chicken breasts.
Spread 1 tsp of the honey mustard all over the inside of each chicken breast. Lay a slice of provolone over top of the each chicken, followed by 2 asparagus spears. Fold the chicken over and secure with tooth picks if needed.
Heat the oil up on medium heat in a large, oven-safe pan. Place the chicken in and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side.
Cover the pan with tinfoil and bake until an instant read thermometer inserted in the chicken breast reads 165 degrees, about 15 minutes.
