Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
2 - Large 6 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
4 - Pieces of Canadian Bacon (fully cooked)
12 - stalks of asparagus
1/4 - cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1/4 - cup fat free feta cheese
1/4 - cup plain non-fat yogurt

2-3 - Large garlic cloves, minced
4 - Sliced Canadian Bacon, diced into bits
2 - tablespoons fresh basil, finely shopped (or 1 tablespoon dried)
1/4 - cup parmesan , shredded
Pam Cooking Spray
Preheat Oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a cooking sheet by lining it with tin foil (you will thank me later) and spraying with Pam cooking spray.
Cut each of your chicken breasts in half length wise.
Mix together your Parmesan, Feta, Yogurt, Basil, Parsley, Salt and Pepper.
Place a slice of Canadian Bacon, a quarter of your cheese mixture and 3 asparagus spears cut to fit on each half of chicken breast. And roll up. Place seam side down on your prepared cooking sheet. Cook at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
NOW...Let's start your Potatoes! Heat up a large pan on medium high heat and spray with Pam cooking spray. Add your diced Canadian Bacon slices and cook until crispy like bacon bits (just a couple minutes).
FRESH, HEALTHY INGREDIENTS....NUMMMMY!
Add your garlic right about now....and mix evenly with bacon bits. Then add your sliced potatoes, parmesan, basil and salt / pepper to taste. Cover and cook about 20 minutes - - should be done when chicken is done or close to it. STIR and Toss it around every so often.
Woot! Woot! You are done! Finished...WAAALAAA! Lovely flavors....I'm SO glad this turned out! I took pictures along the way HOPING it would :)
