Tasty Tuesday: Chicken and Asparagus Roulades

Ingredients

    • 1 1/4-lb pkg thin-sliced boneless chicken breasts
    • 12 thin sandwich-sized slices Swiss cheese (from an 8-oz pkg)
    • 1 lb Red Barn asparagus, woody ends snapped off; spears simmered in salted water until tender, then cooled

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Place 1 slice chicken on each of 4 sheets of plastic wrap. Cut extra chicken in pieces; place, overlapping, on slices so each is about equal size. Cover with plastic wrap; pound to fuse pieces to slices and until evenly thick. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.

Top each with 3 slices cheese to 1/2 in. of edge. Place 1/4 the asparagus at narrower end. Tightly roll up; secure with a wooden pick. Roll roulades in 1 1/2 Tbsp flour.

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add roulades; brown on all sides. Place on baking sheet. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Carefully remove picks and slice.
