This was a very good meal! It did lend itself to a very chic & elegant presentation. And, I thought, pretty easy to make. The single most time consuming thing was peeling the lower half of the asparagus stalks so they cook up nice and tender.(I learned that technique from Julia Child & "Lessons with Master Chefs") I tripled the recipe, making 6 large stuffed chicken breasts, and 10 or 12 asparagus/bacon bundles. The stuffing mixture seemed to make LOT of stuffing, I will adjust some amounts downward next time. Oh, I used Stovetop stuffing mix with a little chiken broth instead of cornbread in the stuffing. Other than that, I followed the recipe. The chicken breasts were dee-licious! The veggie stuffing was very moist and flavorful, and the chicken was very moist and tender. All dinner guests agreed this recipe was a keeper! The baked asparagus was not too bad, well pretty good actually, but the tips of the asparagus got a bit dried out and scorched in the baking process. The bacon was a yummy addition though. I had thick asparagus stalks, so I only wrapped two or three stalks in each bundle. I had leftovers from this meal, both chicken and asparagus, and they were quite delicious the next day warmed up in the microwave for lunch.
