This 30 minute chicken asparagus is absolutely delicious!  Even my picky 5 year old cleaned her plate the last time I made it, and that’s saying a lot! 😉

Ingredients:

thawed or fresh chicken breasts (number will depend on how many you are serving)

jar of spaghetti/marinara sauce

sliced Swiss or Provolone cheese

bunch of asparagus

grated or shredded Parmesan cheese

Italian or garlic seasoning  (I like to use Tastefully Simple’s garlic bread seasoning)

spaghetti

You want really thin pieces of chicken to start.  I cut mine in half and then pounded them flat with a rolling pin (make sure to cover the chicken with plastic wrap first).

 Layer with a slice of Swiss or Provolone cheese, then place 3-4 pieces of asparagus in the center.

Pour part of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a glass baking dish.  You just want enough sauce to completely coat the bottom of the dish.  Carefully roll the chicken and place seam down into the sauce.

 Cover the tops of each piece of chicken with remaining sauce and shredded or grated Parmesan cheese.
