Power Dogs:

  • Chicken breasts
  • Asparagus
  • Turkey bacon
  • Mozzarella cheese (I use goat cheese)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt / pepper to taste

Take your chicken breast and use a meat tenderizer to “flatten” the breast out. This allows it to easily roll up. Each “Power Dog” is made up of one chicken breast (this is the bun), 3 or 4 asparagus spears (this is the “dog”), 3 slices of turkey bacon (serves like a rubber band to hold it together), a handful of cheese and salt and pepper to taste (our condiments).

After the chicken breast has been tenderized place the “bun” on top of 3 slices of turkey bacon. Add the asparagus, cheese, salt and pepper. Starting on one side, roll up the chicken and turkey bacon around the asparagus.

Once rolled up they are ready to be placed on the grill. You can use an outside grill or a George Foreman grill. Cover surface with olive oil to prevent sticking before placing rolls on the grill. Cook about 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
