Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

FILLING

  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 12-16 asparagus spears, woody ends trimmed
  • 3 strips thick cut cooked bacon, crumbled

COATING

  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 lime juiced, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Wash, dry and butterfly chicken breasts. (To butterfly put your chicken breast on a chopping board and, with your hand flat on top of it, use a sharp knife to slice into one side of the breast, starting at the thicker end and ending at the thin point. Be careful not to cut all the way through to the other side.).
  3. Open butterflied chicken breasts and place mozzarella, 3-4 raw asparagus spears, and 1/4 of the crumbled bacon into the fold (optional: secure the fold with a toothpick).

  4. In a medium bowl, mix together oil, lime juice, and salt and pepper.
  5. Brush both sides of the chicken breast with the oil mixture, and place on a baking dish, sheet pan lined with foil, or into a cast iron skillet.

  6. Top with breadcrumbs.
  7. Repeat with the other remaining chicken breasts.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, serve immediately.
