Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Make cut in one long side of each chicken breast, being careful to not cut through to opposite side. Fill pockets with asparagus and shredded cheese.
Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; top with Parmesan.
Bake 20 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Meanwhile, prepare stuffing as directed on package. Serve with chicken.
Trimming Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
Steam any remaining asparagus and serve on the side.
How to Purchase & Store Asparagus
Asparagus should be green with firm stalks and closed, compact tips. Stalks can be thin or thick; it is a matter of personal preference. To store, stand fresh asparagus spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate. Or, store in refrigerator with a damp paper towel wrapped around base of stalks and cover loosely with a plastic bag. Asparagus is best when cooked the day it is purchased, but will keep up to 3 or 4 days. Wash just before using.
