Been trying new ways to cook healthier measl, especially thos with less salt. A friend of mine shared a delightful Chicken Wrapped Asparagus with me and I just have to share with you folks.
Chicken Wrapped Asparagus
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbls Dijon or spicy mustard
1 lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp lite salt
8 spears fresh asparagus spears
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  1. Grease a baking dish. and preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Cook asparagus in the microwave on High until bright green and just tender or boil in water. Place a chicken breast between two sheets of heavy plastic on a solid, level surface. Pound chicken breast firmly with the smooth side of a meat mallet until about 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with the second chicken breast.
  3. Place a slice of provolone on each chicken breast, and top with 4 asparagus spears per breast. Roll the chicken breasts around the asparagus and cheese, making a nice rolled pocket. Then place, seam side down, in your baking dish. With a pastry brush, apply a thick coating of the mayonnaise mixture to each chicken breast, and sprinkle generously with bread crumbs. Complete by pressing the crumbs into the chicken.
  4. Bake in oven until  crumbs are browned and  juices run clear, about 30 t0 45 minutes.

I served this with slow cooked fresh frozen greenbeans, Mashed potatoes, and a nice little gravy made from the drippings of the chicken. Was a great tasty meal. I think the next time I make it I am going to make double the mayonnaise mixture and put it on the inner layer with the cheese and asparagus.
