I have seen a lot of rollatini with chicken breasts but I think thighs are what make this a good dish. You cannot be afraid of fat, however!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with avocado oil.

  • Pound chicken thighs using a meat mallet until they are uniform and fairly thin. Place a slice of Cheddar-Monterery Jack cheese and 2 asparagus spears in the center of each thigh. Roll thigh around the cheese and asparagus; wrap each with 1 bacon slice.

  • Arrange chicken rolls on the prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crisp, asparagus is slightly wilted, and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Coconut oil spray can be used in place of the avocado oil, if desired.
