Spinach & Mozz Chicken Roll-ups

It has been exactly four long weeks since my last post and I don't like it one bit! I am finally back in the kitchen and couldn't be happier. For our first family dinner back together, I am making chicken roll-ups with sauteed spinach and mozzarella cheese. Feel free to swap the mozzarella for your favorite cheese.


Recipe yields 6 servings

Ingredients
2 lbs thinly sliced chicken breast
16 oz fresh baby spinach
1 head garlic
4 tbsp olive oil
10 oz mozzarella cheese
2 large eggs
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil. While heating up, chop the garlic and add to oil.


Saute until golden and fragrant. Add dry spinach by the handful, pushing into the pan to fit it all.


Cook on medium-high heat until all spinach is soft and wilted. Remove to a bowl and set aside.


Thinly slice the mozzarella cheese. Lay a piece of cheese and a spoonful of spinach on top of each chicken cutlet.


Roll the chicken being sure to keep all the goods inside and secure with a toothpick.


First dip the chicken roll-ups in egg and then coat with breadcrumbs. Place on a baking sheet prepared with non-stick cooking spray.


Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. The chicken will be golden brown when it is ready to come out.


Remove from oven and serve alongside rice or vegetables. Enjoy!
