Very good, didn't roll them into bundles (just didn't have time). Added some garlic powder and they turned out moist and tender (so did the asparagus). I also left them covered the entire cooking time, not realizing half of the time if was to have been uncovered. <br/>Tip: For anyone having difficulty "pounding" out the breasts, first half them horizontally and you'll save yourself a lot of frustration :-)

I made a recipe similar to this one a while ago and i used mozzarella instead and didn't wrap it in string, instead i just placed the seam where the ends overlapped on the bottom and put italian bread crumbs on top and a piece of rosemary. Its really simple and tastes amazing!

Yum! This recipe is so easy and so good, I would make this again for sure. I did have to cook the chicken for 10-15 minutes longer as it wasn't cooked through. Make sure you use a good amount of lemon pepper because it's the only seasoning. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks Debbwl! :)
