chicken asparagus rolls

I'll start by saying that I'm proud of this little recipe.  It's really yummy! I'm not much of a cook so this was an accomplishment for me. I got the inspiration for these chicken asparagus rolls from a combination of recipes I found on Pinterest:

The first is these mini french dips. They’re quick and easy and are so yummy. My husband and I eat them about once a month (yum)! Then I saw this chicken & asparagus roll-up recipe. It’s by no means “fancy” but I thought I could tweak it to make it easier (hey...I’m a “come home from work and make something simple for dinner” kind of girl...can you blame me?). Plus, crescent rolls are the best (carbs = love). I know, I know...carbs are the enemy, but they’re oh so good.

Without further ado... Here’s what you’ll need to make your own batch:

Chicken & Asparagus Rolls
* recipe yields 8 rolls *

1 package crescent rolls
4 slices of provolone/mozzarella cheese
16 asparagus spears

1-2 chicken breasts
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup mayo
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp dijon mustard
pepper (to taste)
a pinch of garlic salt

[1] Start by prepping your chicken. Cut your chicken breasts in half (to thin them out a bit) then slice into small, easy to eat strips.

[2] In a large ziplock bag, combine the extra virgin olive oil and soy sauce. Mix together well then add chicken. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (a lot of times I prep this the night before). I made 3 chicken breasts because I like to have leftover chicken for salads and wraps.


[3] Now it’s time to prep the asparagus. Roast the asparagus with a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper for about 8 -10 minutes @ 400. Allow to cool for a few minutes. They should still be a bit crunchy.

[4] Cook your chicken (skillet, grill... your choice). I chose to use a skillet and cooked the pieces for a few minutes on both sides until done all the way through.

[5] Now it’s time to make the mayo spread. This goes on the crescent rolls during “assembly.” In a small bowl, combine the mayo, lemon juice, dijon mustard, pepper & pinch of garlic salt. Mix really well.

[6] Now that all the pieces and parts are prepped [whew - a little time consuming but totally worth it, I promise]’s assembly time! Roll out the crescent rolls on a cookie sheet then layer in this order and roll up like a normal crescent roll:

[6] Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (or until rolls are golden brown). Allow to cool for a few minutes before digging in.

You know what’s great about this recipe? Not only is it yummy... but if you prepped extra chicken, you’re already halfway to your next meal (it’s like killing two birds with one stone). I hope you like it!
