Reviews for Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken Rolls
"This was excellent. It took a little more than 20 minutes prep time, but well worth it. I used Swiss cheese instead of provolone and 1/8 tsp of sage spice on each chicken breast instead of the sage leaves. Much milder sage taste. I also didn't have any bread crumbs, so only browned the chicken using the flour, egg and Parmesan cheese. I actually liked it better that way, more crispy coating, less doughy. I also sprinkled garlic powder, onion powder and white pepper on each chicken breast before adding the asparagus , ham and cheese. My family asked to have this added to our "keeper recipes"."
"Loved it! Decided to add some garlic powder, onion powder, white pepper, and celery salt to the fourth add some flavor. Sage was heavy on flavor so I will probably cut back next time. The family loved it though and wants to add it to the meal rotation!"
"It started out tasting okay and got worse as we ate it no one in our family could finish it Was really disappointed i thought it looked so good."
"This was absolutely delicious. I used white wine with it and the crushed sage in a jar."
