Black Diamond® Medium Cheddar Natural Cheese Slices
1/2 tsp (2 mL)
each salt and pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL)
each garlic powder, dried oregano and paprika
boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 tsp (20 mL)
grainy mustard
asparagus spears, trimmed and cooked
thinly sliced red onion rounds
4 tsp (20 mL)
olive oil


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat; grease grate well.
  2. Stir together salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and paprika.
  3. Put chicken breast on a chopping board and, with your hand at on top of it, use a sharp knife to slice into one side of the breast, starting at the thicker end and ending at the thin point. Open out the breast so that it resembles a butterfly.
  4. Brush oil over outside of chicken and season with spice mix.
  5. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes on one side or until chicken is grill-marked. Turn chicken breast over and spread with mustard. Arrange asparagus and red onion on top. Grill chicken for another 6 to 8 minutes. Top with cheese slices for the final 2 minutes.


  • Use thin to medium spears of asparagus.
  • Brush chicken with barbecue sauce during the last few minutes of grilling if desired, before topping with cheese.
