Flavorful Chicken Rolls Recipe

This is a great main course for dinner guests...and they never believe how easy it is. The creamy feta-basil filling can be made early and refrigerated until needed. Deli ham and packaged spinach leaves further cut prep time.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness. Place a single layer of spinach over chicken.
