Macro Friendly Provolone & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

If you're looking for a simple and delicious recipe for chicken, this is it! While this is a relatively simple recipe with minimal ingredients, it's really tasty as long as you're using a good seasoning for your chicken. I used an Italian Seasoning grinder from McCormick with lots of salt and pepper, but some garlic or onion powder plus a little poultry seasoning would be good, too! Also, I stuffed my chicken with asparagus and provolone cheese because that's what I had, but feel free to use whatever cheese you love. (Blue cheese would be amazing!) Provolone is really mild but creamy. As long as you season the chicken well, you'll be golden.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


  • 2 pounds chicken cutlets (cutlets are just thinly sliced chicken breasts)
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 3/4 pound asparagus washed and woody ends snapped off
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning I used McCormick Italian Seasoning Grinder…I think it tastes better


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Lay all chicken cutlets down onto a clean cutting board. You should have about 8-4 oz cutlets. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Fill with 3-4 asparagus spears and one slice of provolone cheese. Roll tightly and secure with toothpicks.
  • Once all the chicken cutlets are filled, sprinkle the exteriors with salt, pepper and more italian seasoning.
  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Brown all sides of the stuffed chicken. It's ok if they don't cook thoroughly…you're just wanting to sear them to get a little color.
  • Once chicken is completely browned, transfer to prepared baking pan and spray lightly with cooking spray. Bake 15-20 minutes or until the chicken registers at 165 degrees F and cheese is all melted. (Be sure to stick your internal thermometer into a thicker part of the chicken, not just into the center of the roll.) Serve hot.
