Here's what you'll need:
8 large skinless chicken breast fillet halves juice from 1 lemon 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 large carrot, sliced into 16 (2-inch) sticks 4 asparagus spears, sliced into 16 (2-inch) lengths 16 bacon slices roasted zucchini and red bell peppers, to serve (optional)
1 Place breast fillet between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound gently to flatten and even out the chicken.
2 Season chicken fillets with lemon juice and pepper. Place 2 carrot sticks and 2 asparagus sticks in the center of each fillet. Fold in ends and roll tightly. Wrap 2 bacon slices around each roll and tie with kitchen twine to secure.
3 Place rolls on a rack on top of a roasting pan and bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and bacon is golden brown. Remove kitchen twine. Slice or serve whole. Serve with roasted zucchini and red bell peppers, if desired.
