Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Cheese, Tomato and Asparagus

Are you tired of making the same old chicken dish? Looking to change it up a bit? Why not stuff chicken breasts with some of your favorite goodies?

This might look a little difficult but don’t worry…it’s super easy. All you have to do is take a chicken breast and cut a pocket in the side. Next, stuff it with some of your favorite cheeses and veggies and close it up with a few toothpicks. It’s that simple.

Here’s is one of my favorite stuffed chicken recipes…

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Cheese, Tomato and Asparagus


  • 4 (14 ounce) bone-in chicken breast halves
  • 12 stalks of asparagus
  • 1/3 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside. With a paring knife, cut a 1-inch-long slit in thick side of each breast. Insert knife, and without enlarging opening, carefully work around inside to form a pocket (make sure you do not go through the other side).
  2. Evenly stuff asparagus, sun-dried tomato halves, garlic, salt, pepper and cream cheese (spread) in the chicken breast pockets.
  3. Close pockets, using 2 to 3 toothpicks per breast; arrange, skin side up, on baking sheet. Rub with olive oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Roast until well browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast (avoiding bone) reads 165 degrees, 30 to 35 minutes. Let chicken rest 5 minutes; remove toothpicks before serving.

  1. This looks delicious! Just a few weeks ago I made lemon chicken wrapped asparagus and it was so yummy. I bet it's even better with cheese and tomato.
