Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

A delightful combination of tender chicken and fresh asparagus with a creamy, cheesy filling.


  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Butterfly the chicken breasts by cutting them in half horizontally without cutting all the way through, then open them up like a book.
  3. Season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese until well combined.
  5. Spread the cheese mixture evenly inside each chicken breast.
  6. Place several asparagus spears in the center of each chicken breast, then fold the chicken over to enclose the filling.
  7. Secure the chicken with toothpicks if needed.
  8. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  9. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the asparagus is tender.
  10. Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
