1 lb chicken breast, pounded thin and cut into four pieces
12 spears asparagus
8 slices bacon
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese

For the sauce:
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 1/4 C milk, heated
Salt Pepper
1/4 C Parmesan cheese


Lay the chicken out and sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the seasonings.  Trim the asparagus to be about the width of the chicken.  Lay 3 spears on the chicken and roll the chicken up around the spears.  Wrap the chicken bundles with two pieces of bacon.  Place the bundles in a greased pan and bake at 400F for about 35-40 min.  Broil for about 5 minutes or until bacon begins to crisp.

While bundles are cooking prepare the sauce.  Melt the butter on medium heat.  Add the flour and heat until it begins to brown.  Add the milk in slowly, make sure the milk is warm first.  When heated though, add the cheese and seasonings.

Serve the chicken with rice and pour the sauce over all.
