A SUCCESS!!! Since there was just hubby and I, we froze the other 2 for another dinner. I don't know yet how well the asparagus will do freezing, but if it works, next time, I'll probably double the recipe to freeze. Also rubbed the chicken on both sides. Used a homemade pesto as we had plenty of fresh basil from the garden. GREAT recipe, will definately make again.

I have made this many times. I substitute the parm cheese for a mexican blend my family loves it. I don't always use the pesto either, depends on the day. Fresh green beans work just as good as the asparagus too.

I substituted 1/2 of the Parmesan for Romano. Screw using the oven to cook these. I indirect grilled at 350 for 40 min (with apple wood smoke) then kicked it up to 400 for the last 20 min to get the bacon real crispy. A total winner of a dish. Family loved it!

These were just ok. I'm not quite sure what was missing but they were pretty bland. Not a keeper but I'm glad I gave it a try.

VERY good! 1st time I made it I skipped the pesto, chicken had already been marinated in italian dressing. Also added a little shredded mozz cheese in with the parm. Though I had to used more than 2 pieces of bacon to wrap. More like 4 and sometimes 5. But who doesn't love extra bacon? I also tossed the asparagus with italian dressing. Just made it tonight and dipped the chicken in pesto and again, had to use more pieces of bacon. I plan to freeze these and see how that goes. Just not sure if I will cook them straight from the freezer or defrost them 1st. I will make this often!

Words cannot describe how much I loved this chicken! Everything about it was perfect. I made this for my parent's anniversary and it was a big hit. I never knew stuffing chicken was so simple. Thank you so much for the fantastic recipe!

I left out the pesto and topped the chicken with an alfredo sauce once it was out of the oven - served it on a bed of sauteed onions and asparagus - and LOVED every bite. So easy too! Thank you!!
