Chicken Rolls with Asparagus, Red Pepper and Brie

chicken rolls Turn ordinary chicken breasts into an easy and elegant dinner by making chicken rolls that are stuffed with asparagus, roasted red pepper and brie cheese. This dish could easily be used for entertaining because you can prep and prepare the chicken the night before and then just bake it off the day of your party.

chicken rollsAll you have to do is cook your asparagus just for a minute or so to take the rawness off then plunge into cold water and pat dry. Then roast up some thick sliced red pepper strips to layer on top along with your favorite cheese.

I used brie here but mozzarella would work nicely, as well as provolone, fontina, goat cheese or anything else that melts nicely.

I had three, six to eight ounce breasts which I sliced open like a book keeping them together, not separating them apart. Pound nice and flat, as even as you can all around then season with salt and pepper.

Brown one side of the breasts in a skillet to get a little color on the side that will be showing when they get rolled up, light brown on one side only for around two minutes tops!

Then transfer to a baking sheet, browned side down and start layering. I used four asparagus for my chicken rolls but I had fairly thin asparagus.

Roll up and secure it with twine, do not use toothpicks they will fall apart.

Drizzle the top with olive oil, and your favorite dried herbs, I used thyme and granulated garlic.

Bake at 375 til cooked through. It’s best to check the internal temp with a meat thermometer just to make sure.

    Sounds wonderful. Is there any possibility you could include Nutritional Value along with recipes.

  2. This looks perfect for spring time when asparagus is plentiful and inexpensive, Marie. I often make chicken saltimbocca but this looks like another good way to dress up cutlets. I like the slicing brie cheese you used–never saw that brand before.

  3. Another beautiful and delicious meal, Marie. Your photos are just so mouth-watering. I’ve never seen brie sold like that, in a rectangular shape. Is it from the supermarket?

  4. Hi I could not find the recipe,thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes

    • It’s written right in the middle of the post Adriana, no formal print out this time as it is not really a recipe but rather instructions on how to make it.

  5. What a delicious looking recipe! That is something I can’t make here. I’ll have to wait until we get home — my mallet is there as well as all my other equipment and pans. I can only make the very basic of recipes until we are home again. I’m pinning to make in April. Have a great day!!

    These look wonderful! Do you serve one to each guest – they look large on the screen! – or do you cut them in half to serve?

  7. This is definitely a pretty dish to serve dinner guests and it is so easy. Nice!
