I've been searching online for some good recipes with chicken breast, bacon, asparagus and cream cheese, but I'm failing miserably. I would just make something up, but every time I've done that, my food has turned out horrible. Anybody have any ideas or recipes with these ingredients?

ETA: It doesn't have to have all these ingredients, but that's pretty much what I have towork with ATM. I need to go grocery shoppin...

 All in the same recipe? Or just using those ingredients separately?

Either/or. I was thinking of something like asparagus cream cheese stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon. IDK why, but that sounds delicious...

I wouldn't use the asparagus in the dish unless you like it mushy. Otherwise, you could mix bacon into the cream cheese and some basil, oregano, and thyme, slice the chicken breasts open to make a pocket, stuff the cream cheese/bacon/spices inside and bake. Steam the asparagus for just a few minutes, so they're tender/crisp. Serve with rice, bread, salad, or whatever.

Thanks! I would need to change up some of the ingredients though...I'm a little low on fresh veggies.

No cream cheese but this sounds good

That sounds pretty good, but I don't mind mushy asparagus.

So here's what I did. I decided to go ahead and make something up. The asparagus I had was the steam in bag cuts, so I stuck it in the microwave just long enough to defrost it, then mixed it with cream cheese, italian seasonings and just a titch of salt, then stuffed the chicken with it. Then I wrapped the chicken in the bacon. It's baking now, so we'll see how it turns out.
