Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast

This recipe brings together the freshness of asparagus and the creaminess of mozzarella cheese in a succulent chicken breast.


  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 lb.)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Himalayan salt and peppercorn lemon & garlic seasoning
  • 12 asparagus stalks, ends trimmed
  • 1 oz sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Lay the chicken breasts flat on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  3. Season the chicken breasts inside and out with garlic powder, smoked paprika, Himalayan salt, and peppercorn lemon & garlic seasoning.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with 3 asparagus stalks, some chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and a slice of mozzarella cheese.
  5. Secure the chicken breasts with toothpicks to keep the stuffing inside.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
