Chicken is a real staple in our household and we’re always looking for ways to jazz it up… if we can sneak in some hidden vegetables, than even better!

This Mozzarella and Asparagus Stuffed Chicken is slimming friendly, but it definitely doesn’t taste like it.  We love using seasonal veg in our recipes and British asparagus is no exception.  It really adds an extra level of flavour and texture to this dish and to make things better, it’s not that expensive either!

We love our Mozzarella and Asparagus Stuffed Chicken served with lots of veggies, a crisp, colourful salad or even our Homemade Oven Chips.

Hi, I’m aware this may seem like an obvious question, but how do I organise the online recipes into folders? Absolutely superb recipes by the way – keep up the good work! (And I have purchased the recipe books!),
