Okay FFF fam, what is it about stuffing things inside chicken that just makes it SO MUCH BETTER?
Probably because it usually involves cheese and we all know everything is better with cheese right?
Also, before we even go further, pro tip: buy the pre-sliced provolone cheese to make this recipe and thank me later for the time saved. <–And if you have leftovers, just make philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers!

HOW TO MAKE ASPARAGUS STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST
Now that we have rounded up all our delicious ingredients, let’s get this show on the road! You’re going to have a top notch dinner meal to share with friends and family in no time at all! Here’s how to make this stuffed chicken and asparagus:
Set your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and let it preheat fully.
Slice the chicken breasts almost all the way in half, but leave them attached enough so that they stay in tact. The chicken breasts should be able to fold open. Inside each chicken breast, sprinkle some garlic powder, italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt. There’s no need to measure! Sprinkle italian seasoning on the outside of each chicken breast.
Spread 1 teaspoon of honey mustard on the inside of each chicken breast. Add a slice of provolone cheese and 2 asparagus spears on top. Fold the chicken over and secure it with toothpicks if needed.
Heat up the olive oil in a large, oven-safe pan to medium heat. Place the chicken in the pan and cook 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip each chicken breast and cook the same amount of time on the other side.
Cover the pan with tinfoil and place it in the oven. Bake until the chicken is done, which should take about 15 minutes.
Serve it up and DEVOUR!
