Ingredients:


4   boneless skinless Ontario Chicken Breasts (150 g each)



2 tbsp (25 mL)  Dijon mustard



2 tbsp (25 mL)  chopped fresh Ontario Tarragon Leaves



  Salt and pepper



4   slices Ontario Provolone Cheese



16  Ontario Asparagus Spears, trimmed



2 tbsp (25 mL)  butter, melted



1/4 cup (50 mL)  fresh whole wheat breadcrumbs



 




Cooking Instructions:


 



Place chicken between waxed paper; pound with mallet to flatten to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness.



In small bowl, combine mustard, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste; spread evenly over rough side of each breast. Top each with cheese slice and 4 asparagus spears. Roll up chicken, letting asparagus protrude on both ends; secure with toothpicks.



Place seam side down on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush with a little of the butter. In small bowl, toss crumbs with remaining butter; pat onto stuffed breasts. Season with pepper.



Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes to brown topping. Remove toothpicks to serve.
