Asparagus and Brie Stuffed ChickenBy · Apr 10 2012 · Comments
Oh, how a year goes by. Easter weekend last year I was driving to my in-laws home and I got the much anticipated call from my doctor announcing that we were having a baby. This call was one that sent me pulling over to the nearby rest stop hysterically crying in happiness. This year I found myself driving to Grandma and Grandpa’s with a sound asleep baby girl and a very good reason to be thankful. As I often say, this has very little to do with my food, but really this blog has become has much a diary as it has been a showcase of my food. So… this meal was made after the long haul home from Grandma and Grandpa’s. Easy as can be, healthy and delicious.
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 4 ounces goat cheese brie, thinly sliced into
- ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
- 8 pieces asparagus
- ¼ cup crème fraiche
- Salt for seasoning
Pre-heat oven to 375°.
Butterfly cut the breasts. Place two pieces of asparagus on one side of the butterflied breast, followed by 2 slices of the cheese and a tablespoon red onion. Fold the other half of the breast back over and secure with a tooth pick. Spread one tablespoon crème fraich on top of each breast and season with salt. Place the stuffed breasts in a baking dish and transfer to the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the center of the breasts are cooked through. Remove from the oven and serve.
