Top-ranked recipe named "Chicken-Asparagus Roll-ups with Orange Yogurt Sauce and Couscous"
Halve the chicken breasts horizontally separating each into 2 cutlets.
Place each halved cutlet in an individual freezer plastic storage bag (with slider tab). Add a tablespoon of water to each bag and pound into1/8-inch thick cutlets.
Arrange the 4 cutlets on work surface. Season cutlets with salt and pepper on the side facing up. Cover each piece of chicken with 1 slice cheese and 1 oz ham. Starting on 1 side of the breast, place a small bundle of 3 asparagus spears. Wrap and roll the chicken around the asparagus. Wash hands.
Heat about 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet (I used my new cast-iron pan, but you can use non-stick) over medium heat. When hot, using tongs, add the chicken roll-ups to skillet with seam side down. Season the roll-ups with salt and pepper. Cover the pan loosely with tin foil or lid and cook 4 to 5 minutes, turn roll-ups over and cook and other 4 to 5 minutes.
Combine Sauce ingredients in a bowl
Serve over couscous with the sauce drizzled over both

jpfleg55 10 months agoLight, easy, and delicious. I substituted steamed broccoli and cauliflower for couscous as the side and made a little extra sauce to drizzle over everything. Thanks for the recipe - added to favorites to try again soon,

Jbluedog274 1 year agoI wasn't crazy about the sound of the sauce so instead I did a cream sauce as a base and then nestled the chicken roll ups in the sauce to cook. It's outstanding. I've made this recipe 6 or 7 times and it's been great every time

lmfinch72 3 years agoThis was so easy and so good. I used plain Greek yogurt. It turned out so well. I froze two servings with brown rice to use as a later quick meal, they re-heated well and were just as good. Love it.
