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.

jpfleg55Light, 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,3y ago
WoodcentGreat recipe, my family loved it! I will definitely make it again!3y ago
Jbluedog274I 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 time3y ago

bengies69Not really into sweet sauces but was pretty good and very easy to make, thanks.5y ago
lmfinch72This 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.6y ago
