I saw the asparagus in the produce section today and decided to come up with a recipe for dinner tonight. This is what I came up with - both DH and myslef loved it. Easy enough for any day, but "fancy" enough for a dinner party. I served these with fingerling potatoes roasted with olive oil and rosemary.


  1. Pound each chicken breast to about 1/2" thick.
  2. On each breast, place 2 slices prosciutto, 3-4 asparagus spears and 1/4c shredded cheese.
  3. wrap into a bundle and secure with toothpicks.
  4. place in baking dish and cover with foil.
  5. backe in 350 degree oven for one hour.

Good as written, improved with some seasoning (I agree with Jackieblue) and a nice marinade prior to baking? Thanks for a nice base recipe!

Very good base recipe for us to make our own. I used a blend of Asiago, fontina, parmesan, provolone, and mozzerella. I also seasoned the outside liberally with pepper, some garlic, and a little salt. I highly recommend thick asparagus spears as the thin would have been very overcooked for us. I might shave a little off the cooking time next time. Served with rice pilaf. It will be fun to try different cheeses. My husband loved this and I am glad I made enough for 2 nights!

Made exactly as written. Giving 5 stars for one of the easiest entrees I've ever made with the fewest ingredients that tastes really great! Served with a wild rice and sliced tomatoes.
