Our Asparagus Stuffed Chicken is tender, herbaceous, and super cheesy. It’s beautiful and will impress any guest, and it’s way easier to make than it looks. The asparagus has a nice bite to it, while the cheesy ooze brings all the other ingredients together, giving this chicken a classic feel. Everything’s easy to find at the store, and the entire dish comes together in just over half an hour. Serve with a microwave rice blend.
