summer time cooking

My favorite fast and good chicken recipe.. after all it is summer

About 20 thin asparagus spears
2 cloves garlic- diced
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
cup or so Feta
Pesto (optional) few tablespoons
Tomato based bbq sauce

Clean asparagus; simmer in water with garlic and some salt until tender
Remove asparagus, dump the water and garlic

Butterfly the breasts (cut open like a book) If wanted flatten with a mallet to 1/4 inch or less

Season with salt and pepper to taste

Quickly grill or pan fry in olive oil the breasts until cooked.

Mix feta with pesto in a bowl.

Place asparagus and feta inside of the breast; close the breast- you may need to use a toothpick. Season with paprika, salt, oregano.

Cook on grill or skillet until warmed through—

Lightly coat with bbq sauce to glaze the outside.

Remove and serve.

This sounds great. I never would have thought to combine bbq sauce, pesto and feta. I might have to give this a try. :-)
