Recipe: Asparagus and Chicken Rollatini

I found this recipe in a magazine and decided to give it a try and it is definitely a keeper!  I used a large can of crushed tomatoes with basil and oregano in place of the jar sauce and the asparagus was of the thick variety so I used two per serving.  I also used the small round thin pepperoni slices - 6 per chicken breast. 
Chicken Rollatini
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts  (6 halves)
24 Genoa salami or pepperoni slices
6 provolone slices
18 asparagus spears, trimmed
1 jar (24 oz.) Classico  Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce, divided
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan or Romano Cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350'. Halve each chicken breast and pound to 1/4 inch thick.  Season, then place 4 salami slices, one cheese slice and 3 asparagus spears in center of each breast; roll up and secure with one or two toothpicks.
2. Spread 1/2 cup of sauce on bottom of an 11x7" baking dish.  Put chicken in dish, top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese.  Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until cooked through.  
Serves 6

Oh my goodness, this looks and sounds yummy! I especially like the idea of using the crushed tomatoes and adding basil and oregano, instead of sauce from a jar. I don't think that I've ever found a sauce in a jar that I really like. Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe!
Happy REDnesday!
