Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup crushed saltines (about 30 crackers), divided
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 envelope white sauce mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Ground nutmeg, optional

Directions

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/8-in. thickness. Place in a resealable plastic bag; add 1/4 cup salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. In a large skillet, saute onion in remaining salad dressing. Add 1/2 cup cracker crumbs, spinach and parsley. Cook for 5 minutes or until heated through. Remove from the heat.
  3. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Spoon about 1/2 cup spinach mixture on each chicken breast; roll up and overlap ends. Secure with a toothpick. Roll in remaining crumbs.
  4. Place in a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
  5. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in the white sauce mix until smooth; gradually stir in milk. Bring to boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in cheese until melted. Serve with chicken. Sprinkle with nutmeg if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
