Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 asparagus spears
  • 1 cup fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, for garnish
  • chili flakes, for garnish
  • Side dish ideas: roasted baby potatoes, sweet potato fries, corn on the cob, arugula salad

Instructions

  • Preheat BBQ or oven to 425 F. Make a deep cut in the middle of chicken.
  • Season with a mix of paprika, garlic powder and salt, rubbing chicken well all over. Add two asparagus spears to each breast, then top with about 1/4 cup of fire roasted tomatoes, 2 tbsp of goat cheese and 2 tbsp fresh chopped spinach.
  • Fold each chicken breast over, tying with a string to hold together if desired. Place on BBQ or in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until chicken is fully cooked (should register 165 F if using a meat thermometre to measure doneness).
  • Remove from grill and garnish with basil and red chili flakes. Serve with your choice of side and enjoy!
