Spinach Cheese Chicken Roll Ups
I made the best recipe last week. It looked like a chef made it but it was actually really easy and delicious. It is low calorie and low carbohydrate. I served it with a side of whole wheat spaghetti and marinara.
Spinach Cheese Chicken Roll-Ups
Chicken Cutlets (very thin chicken breasts)
6 TBSP Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
6 oz Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese reduced fat
Box of Frozen Spinach
3 Eggs (split)
Italian Bread Crumbs
Marinara Sauce (I used my spaghetti sauce with no meat)
Olive oil spray
Mix the Ricotta cheese, mozzarella, spinach and one egg in a bowl. Put mixture inside chicken breast and roll up. Dip entire chicken roll up in 2 beaten eggs and then roll in breadcrumbs. Cook at 400 for 25 minutes. Cover Chicken with marinara sauce on each roll up. Add thin slice of fresh mozzarella on each and put back in oven till sauce is warm and cheese is melted.
