Easy to make chicken recipe stuffed with asparagus, cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes 

Servings: 4


4 Skinless boneless chicken breasts about 1 1/2 lb.

1 Tsp Italian seasoning mix

1 Tsp Garlic Powder

1 Tsp Smoked Paprika

Sea salt and pepper

12 Asparagus stalks end trimmed

1 oz Sun-dried Tomatoes chopped

4 slices Mozzarella Cheese

1 Tbsp Olive Oil


Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Place the chicken on a clean chopping board and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Start cutting each one lengthwise to create the pockets. Be careful not to cut all the way through.

Add 3 sprigs of asparagus and a couple of pieces of sun-dried tomatoes to a mozzarella slice, then roll it to hold them inside. Stuff the chicken breasts with it.

Close the pocket with a toothpick. Heat oil in a large and cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Add in the chicken and sear it until nicely golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side.

Bake the chicken for 15-20 minutes, or until it is cooked through and no longer pink in the inside. Enjoy!


Cheese: you may sub the Mozzarella cheese with another cheese like provolone.

Asparagus: Use another veggie like broccoli

Oil: any oil of choice will work


If cooking chicken in the oven, it should take approximately 20 to 30 minutes if you prefer baking or roasting and set the oven at 375 degrees F. Cooking your chicken on the grill? it should take about 6-8 minutes on each side when using direct heat.


You may freeze leftover the cooked stuffed chicken breast for up to 3 months. Make sure your store the breasts properly in an airtight container to prevent them from getting freezer burned. Stuffed chicken breast lasts 4-5 days when stored in the fridge.
