Pesto Stuffed Chicken with Asparagus [Keto Air Fryer Recipe]

Nothing beats chicken—except stuffed chicken! Chicken breast gets elevated with a divine cheese and pesto-infused mixture to create a flavor explosion with every bite in this recipe, which is served alongside lightly roasted asparagus that adds crunch and texture to every bite.

When it comes to eating low-carb, the humble chicken is well-loved for a reason. And while there’s nothing wrong with eating the same preparation of chicken day in and day out, it’s a nice change to play around with the flavors and presentation. Once you’ve tried stuffed chicken, it’s hard to go back. Spreading a mix of cream cheese, green pesto, and parmesan cheese evenly along the inside of the chicken makes the meat that much more tender and juicy.

Known for being a spring vegetable, asparagus is associated with lighter flavors and is an optimal receptacle for the Italian flavors of this dish. With a naturally sweet and subtle taste, asparagus really shines when coated with a gentle helping of spices and olive oil, and topped with the chicken to absorb the juices.

There are certainly numerous ways to prepare chicken and asparagus, but cooking them in an air fryer may be the most convenient and healthiest option available. Unlike the regular stovetop method, you can place the dish in the air fryer and continue on with your day, with full confidence that you’ll get perfectly cooked chicken only 18-20 minutes later.
