These chicken and bacon asparagus rolls have us obsessed

Asparagus rolls are usually made with fillets of white fish, but they are also fantastic with fillets of chicken or turkey. They are one of those dishes that completely wows us with their rich taste, even though we didn’t put much effort into the preparation.
And if you treat yourself to a glass of white wine with these spring bites, such as Sauvignon or Pinot Gris, this specialty with or without accompaniment will be perfect!

Asparagus rolls

For 2 people.

  • 2 chicken breast steaks (thinner)
  • 8 asparagus
  • 6 to 10 slices of bacon (approx. 50 g)
  • salt and pepper to taste

The rest

  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 garlic
  • a few sprigs of rosemary

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

2. Clean the asparagus and break off the lower woody part by hand (you can save it to prepare the asparagus soup).

3. Place the chicken steak on the work surface and add a little salt (don’t overdo it, as the bacon is already very salty) and pepper to taste.

4. Place the cleaned asparagus on the steak and wrap the steak tightly around them.

5. Then place the slices of pancetta next to each other on the work surface (as shown in the photo), wrap them tightly around the roll and thus “glue” it to the meat which holds the roll together.

6. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add a few slices of organic lemon, garlic and sprigs of rosemary, and quickly fry the rolls on all sides so that the bacon is crispy.

7. Then cover the mold with the rolls (you can also cover it with aluminum foil) and place it in a preheated oven and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes to brown the meat.

8. Serve baked rolls immediately.

Tips
As an accompaniment to asparagus rolls, I prefer to make mashed potatoes with čemaž. If you don’t have čemaž, you can add a little roasted garlic to the mash and you’ll also get a wonderful side dish. Of course, baked baby potatoes and rice can also go well with this dish…
Instead of chicken steaks, asparagus can also be wrapped in turkey steaks or fish fillets (sea bass, hake, trout, etc.).
