And here it is a recipe out of my imagination It all started the day my boyfriend stayed home sick and on the way back from work I decided to cook something different to cheer him up - as he is a big fan of asparagus I decided to create something with it - and voilà!!! Hope you enjoy it


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 100g bacon cut into small pieces
  • 4 bits of sun dried tomato
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 100g asparagus
  • cream cheese
  • Tabasco
  • Chicken broth
  • grated cheese
  • salt, pepper and butter to taste


  • STEP 1
    Heat the oven to 180 degrees
  • STEP 2
    In a bowl, combine the bacon, chopped sun dried tomatoes and basil also chopped.
  • STEP 3
    Prepare the asparagus by cutting the ends on both sides and chopping the rest.
  • STEP 4
    Add to the previous mixture.
  • STEP 5
    Season with salt, pepper and Tabasco.
  • STEP 6
    Add cream cheese sufficient to bind all the ingredients together.
  • STEP 7
    Place the chicken breasts on a chopping board - with a knife make a transversal cut on the breasts to create a pocket where you gonna put the filling - cut carefully so as not to create holes in the breasts.
  • STEP 8
    Place the filling in the pockets of the chicken breasts - taking care not to overfill - you must be able to close it
  • STEP 9
    Close the pockets with the aid of cocktail sticks so that the stuffing does not come out during cooking
  • STEP 10
    Butter an oven tray and put the breasts in it. Pour over the chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper and top each breast with grated cheese.
  • STEP 11
    Cover the pan with foil and bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes.
  • STEP 12
    When cooked, remove the foil and turn the grill to brown the cheese.
  • STEP 13
    Serve with rice or fries
