Creamy Asparagus Stuffed Chicken with Faux Hollandaise Sauce

So, we have a habit of buying produce and forgetting to use. I found some asparagus and butternut squash in the fridge that were needing to be used. I decided I would use the asparagus, but wanted to do something other that roast it. I searched the internet for ideas. I discovered the idea of  asparagus stuffed chicken. I took elements of  several recipes I saw to create a very delicious meal. I think my hubby felt like he was getting 5 star treatment with this one.

Creamy Asparagus Stuffed Chicken
  • 4 small Chicken breasts or 2 Large Chicken breasts
  • Bunch of Asparagus
  • 3 oz Neufchatel or cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • Toothpicks.
  • 1/4 Bread Crumbs
  • Faux Hollandaise Sauce (recipe below)

If you are using 4 small Chicken breasts pound out each breast so it is 1/4"-1/2" thick. If using 2 large breast, carefully slice each breast in to 2 thinner pieces.  Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add asparagus and boil 4 minutes. Put asparagus in a bowl of ice water to shock asparagus and quit the cooking process. Mix together cream cheese, garlic, green onion and mustard. Drop a scoop of the cream cheese mixture on each chicken breast. Grab 5 or 6 asparagus spears and place at the end of chicken breast. Roll chicken breast tightly around asparagus and cream cheese mixture. Fix with a toothpick it needed. Put bread crumbs on a plate and lightly roll chicken in the bread crumbs. Bake at 350f for 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Top with Faux Hollandaise Sauce.


Faux Hollandaise Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon or spicy brown mustard

Whisk ingredients together. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
