Start by cutting the chicken breasts in half and flattening them. Then add the good stuff – asparagus, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. Roll the sides up and secure with toothpicks to hold everything together.

Then, add more parmesan, oregano, basil, garlic powder, and onion powder. Hey, I did say this was perfectly seasoned, didn’t I? Each bite packs a powerful punch of flavor and cheesy, chicken-y goodness!
All that’s left to do is dredge the chicken roll-ups in egg and then the crouton mix. Brown the chicken on top and bottom, then stick your cast iron skillet in the over for ten minutes.
Serve with your favorite marinara sauce, and you’re good to go! This is a great date night dinner or just for when you’re feeling like treating yourself without putting in too much effort. Hey, I get it. Treat yo self. Check out the ingredients and instructions below!
