Stuffed Chicken with Spinach & Ricotta

63

This looks harder than it is. My first try at stuffing chicken. It was delish! Served with baked zuchinni and yellow squash.

8
8 thin chicken cutlets, 3 oz each
1/2 cup whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup egg whites or egg beaters
5 oz frozen spinach, squeezed dry of any liquid
1/4 c part skim ricotta cheese
6 oz part skim mozzarella cheese
olive oil non-stick spray
1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Wash and dry cutlets, season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Combine breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp grated cheese in one bowl and 1/4 cup egg beaters or egg whites in another bowl. Shred or finely chop 1.5 oz of mozzarella cheese and combine with remaining grated cheese, spinach (make sure you squeeze it dry), 2 tbsp egg beaters, and ricotta cheese. Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and spread 2 tbsp of spinach-cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one and keep seam side down. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down in a baking dish (no toothpicks needed). Repeat with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spray with olive oil.
