“This recipe is one that I have adapted over time,” says Chris Duncan of Ellensburg, Washington. “It dresses up very well for company or special dinners yet is great for every night, too. The chicken breasts can be prepared and refrigerated until baking time if needed,” she notes.

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions

Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; layer with spinach and cheese. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. In a shallow microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Place bread crumbs in another bowl. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumbs.
Place seam side down in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
In a small saucepan, melt remaining butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Discard toothpicks from roll-ups; serve with sauce. Yield: 2 servings.

"Delicious, I made a couple adjustments though. Added Parmesan and dollop of sour cream to spinach mix, also minced a clove of garlic and lightly saut?ed in the melted butter before rolling chicken in it."

"Decent recipe, but a little bland. Picture shown is a different roll up dish which uses ricotta, red sauce and mozarella, which would probably taste better."
