Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast Primavera Kitchen Recipe

We all know that chicken breast (boneless and skinless) can sometimes be very boring. But, when you stuff them with your favorite ingredients, they can really elevate the flavour of your chicken. I love to make stuffed chicken breasts because you can stuff the chicken with just about anything. The options are endless. The last time I made stuffed chicken, I used spinach, feta cheese, and black olives as a filling, and it was very tasty.

For this recipe, you only need asparagus, mozzarella cheese, lemon zest, and a few spices to make this insanely good asparagus stuffed chicken breast. This recipe is easier than it looks. And, it takes no time at all to create it, other than a quick sear in a skillet to make the chicken even more flavourful and get a good crust on the outside.
