This recipe features chicken breasts wrapped around cooked fresh asparagus spears, with a slice of mozzarella in between.

It then has a very tasty sauce poured over it before it is all baked in the oven, so no frying.

I have served it on Finy's special rice and boiled broccoli.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut in half
cup of good quality mayonnaise
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 lemon, zest and juice
2 tsp dried tarragon
Bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
4 slices mozzarella cheese
cup bread crumbs

Method
Preheat the oven to around 215 if fan forced, and slightly more if not.

Grease a baking dish. Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, tarragon, some salt and pepper, until the mixture is combined. Set aside.

The sauce


Cook the asparagus either in the microwave on high until bright green and just tender 1 - 1 minutes or boil in water. I prefer boiling in water, but either way is OK.

Place a chicken breast in a freezer bag or similar thick plastic and pound with the side of a meat tenderiser until it is about .60 cms thick. Repeat with the rest of the chicken breasts.

Bake in the preheated oven until the crumbs are browned and the chicken juices run clear -this will be about 25 minutes.
