Chicken & Spinach Roll Ups
9 chicken cutlets, pounded thin
salt & pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs or egg beaters
10 oz frozen spinach, squeezed dry
1/2 cup fat free ricotta cheese
1/2 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
Olive Oil spray (I use my Misto)
1 small jar of pasta sauce
4 slices of mozzarella cheese
Heat oven to 450 and lightly spray a baking dish. Wash, dry and season chicken cutlets with cooking spray.
In one dish beat the eggs. In another dish mix the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese and set aside.
In a bowl mix the spinach, ricotta & mozzarella cheese.
Stuff each chicken breast with about 2 tbsp of spinach mixture, roll up and dip in egg then in the breadcrumb mixture. Place in baking dish seam side down.
Repeat with remaining chicken.
Spray the chicken with olive oil and bake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes top with spaghetti sauce and bake for another 10 minutes or until chicken is done. Top with cheese and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

VERDICT: so yummy and everyone loved it. I even have lunch for tomorrow for hubby and myself. I served this with a side of pasta and sauteed green beans.
TIP: to really get your spinach squeezed dry wrap it in a old towel or rag and squeeze it out...no more lost spinach.
