Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Rolls
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min.
- 3/4 cup each chopped onion, celery and sweet red pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
- 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup egg substitute
- 2 cups seasoned stuffing croutons, lightly crushed

- 1/4 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning, optional
- In a nonstick skillet, saute the onion, celery, red pepper and garlic in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Add spinach; cook and stir until spinach is wilted. Cool. Add egg substitute and croutons; mix well.
- Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Top each piece with spinach stuffing; roll up and secure with toothpicks. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

I halved the recipe, otherwise made as directed. Loved it! Even got my 3 year old to eat spinach and peppers which she will never even try. I thought the lemon pepper at the end was a must. Will for sure make this again!

This recipe is awesome! It has so much flavor, plus its low in fat. I did change a few things. Instead of butter I used olive oil to saute the onion, red pepper and celery. For the sauce I didn't have corn starch so in its place I used one can of fat-free cream of mushroom soup. Instead of the stuffing croutons I used italian-style breadcrumbs. Even with these changes the recipe tasted great. I highly recommend trying the Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Rolls.
