Baked Asiago Chicken – creamy gooey cheese melted on top of baked or grilled chicken breast. You decide how you want to cook the chicken!
I work at a hotel in the salad department and we try and test new recipes almost every week. This week we made an Asiago dip which is pretty much Asiago cheese, mayo, parsley, and really tiny diced pieces of onion. Everyone loved this dip and I suggested stuffing it inside some chicken breast because it was so good. We tried that and we all loved it so much I asked to steal the recipe.
Guys, if you’re on a low carb diet you’ll want to eat this chicken at least 3 times a week. You can prep and cook the chicken however you like. Grill, skillet, oven. I baked mine in the oven first at a really high temp for 20 minutes. Let the chicken rest and then topped it with this brilliant cheese dip and put that back in the oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese dip melted. Oh and ps. you will want to dip this with some tortilla chips so make a really big batch.
