Breaded Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
These moist chicken rolls get their appealing look from a golden crumb coating and wonderful spinach and onion filling. They're good right out of the oven, but you can also serve them chilled for an elegant lunch. —Mary Jones of St. Louis, Missouri

Directions

A little messy to put together, but well worth the effort. It's a favorite.

My family loved this recipe! You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh; I thawed it and squeezed the water out, then combined it with the rest of the filling ingredients.
