- 1 lb chicken breast halved (boneless, skinless)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 lb asparagus spear (4-5 per breast)
- 1/2 lb mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 lb prosciutto ham (thinly sliced)
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2. Grease an 8×8 (or larger) baking dish.
3. Place each breast in a 1 gallon storage bag on a solid, flat surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even thickness of about 1/4" to 3/8". Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.
4. Wrap 4-6 asparagus spears with Prosciutto, then top with Mozz. Wrap the chicken breast around the asparagus, Mozz, prosciutto and roll to make a compact roll. Place the rolls, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle each with a generous amount of the bread crumbs. Cover asparagus tips with a small piece of tin foil.
5. Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear (40 to 50 minutes). Place one additional piece of prosciutto on top of the chicken. Continue to bake for 10 additional minutes.
