Chicken Asparagus Roulade with Creamy Tomato Sauce

This Chicken Asparagus Roulade is a beautiful (and healthy!) dish that doesn’t take a ton of time to make.This recipe is fun to experiment with!

If you don’t like asparagus, other stuffing ideas include spinach, bacon, goat cheese, olive tapenade, prosciutto, pesto, or any other fillings you can think of!

I like to add pumpkin puree to my tomato sauce to help reduce the acid in the sauce, which is great if you have acid reflux problems and can’t tolerate very much tomato sauce (the coconut milk helps cut the acid, too). Feel free to be creative with the herbs and spices in this sauce!
