(Serves 4)

 

Ingredients:
1⁄2 cup trim mayonnaise
3 tbs dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tsp dried tarragon
1⁄2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
16 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 Wedge simonsberg 33% reduced fat feta cheese
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 240°C. Grease a 29 x 18cm baking dish (or an 21 x 32cm sheet pan). Combine mayonnaise, mustard, zest, juice, tarragon,
salt, and pepper in a bowl until well blended. Cook asparagus in a microwave on high until bright green and just tender, 1 to 1 1⁄2 minutes. Put a chicken breast between 2 sheets of heavy plastic (zip-top freezer bags work well, too) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound
breast with smooth side of a meat mallet to 1cm thickness. Repeat with remaining chicken. Crumble a quarter wedge feta cheese over each breast, and top with 4 asparagus spears. Roll breasts around asparagus and cheese, and transfer, seam sides down, to prepared dish. Coat with mayonnaise mixture, using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with panko, pressing crumbs into chicken to make a coating. Bake until juices run clear and crumbs are browned, about 25 minutes. (adjusted from Allrecipes Magazine)

 

Notes:

Quick and easy to prepare, the presentation is simple yet elegant. Great served with artichokes.
