Asparagus and Mozzarella Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This was a quick and easy weeknight meal we made. Anything that you can put together in 10 minutes and stick in the oven is pretty high up there in my books!

However, with this sticky weather..I definitely do not want to turn on my oven. ANYTHING to conserve the nice cool air conditioned atmosphere I have been living in!

Asparagus and Mozzarella Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

 Slice up 1 Mozzarella ball and a large handful of trimmed asparagus (enough for 2 or 3 per chicken breast)
 I purchased 5 butterflied chicken breasts. But you can either butterfly them yourself or pound them flat. Season with Salt and Pepper.
 Add your mozzarella and asparagus to the middle of the chicken breasts, and roll up.
 I a large casserole dish ladle some marinara sauce on the bottom (I was too lazy to make some myself...so I  used the stuff out of a jar...GASP...yes i did...sorry)

 Place the rolled chicken breasts over the sauce.

 Top with more marinara sauce and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

 Bake in a 350F oven for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
I  wish I was a better photographer...this doesn't look nearly as good as it tasted!!
