Boneless, skinless chicken breast, again? Amp up the flavor of your chicken with bacon! These are butterflied: either do it yourself or ask your butcher to do it for you. You can then stuff them with cheese and asparagus, wrap them up in a bacon blanket, and air fry! While they cook, toss a green salad, add a veggie or potato, and some bread, and you'll be enjoying your dinner in no time.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) if recommended by manufacturer.

  • Pat chicken pieces dry with paper towels. Use a sharp knife slice horizontally through the middle, beginning at the thickest part, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like an open book.

  • Season both sides with lemon-pepper seasoning. Place 1 slice of cheese on each chicken breast. Cut asparagus spears in half and place 4 halves on top of the cheese. Roll the chicken up and over the cheese and asparagus, keeping the stuffing inside each roll. Wrap each chicken breast with 3 pieces of bacon, using wooden toothpicks to secure the bacon, where it overlaps.

  • Place each bacon-wrapped breast in the air fryer basket and air fry for 15 minutes. Turn and cook for 15 minutes more. Test chicken for doneness; an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should reach 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

Garlic lime-pepper or seasoned salt may be substituted for lemon-pepper seasoning.

Air fryers differ by brand in size and performance. This recipe was prepared in a 5.8-quart air fryer. A smaller capacity machine may require 2 batches.

Tasty! I could not find asparagus at my grocery store, so I used slices of zucchini, celery, and green onion. I also seasoned the chicken with some minced garlic and thyme besides the lemon pepper. This was my first time using my air fryer; don't put parchment paper in it (at least not when preheating--almost started a fire!) All in all, very glad I made this. I especially liked how crispy the bacon got in the air fryer. Read More

Very simple recipe to follow. I added shrimp to my asparagus and cheese stuffing. I cooked and seasoned the shrimp before adding to stuffing. Read More

This is one of the most delicious meals we have ever made with our air-fryer. A little crispy, yet well-done meat with the addition of crispy bacon and its juices touching the chicken. We have a small air-fryer, thus had to do one at a time. If one has a larger fryer, two will be fine. Try it sometime. A+ Read More
