[Broccoli, Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken]
Recipe courtesy of Skinny Mom.
- Large, boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Quantity depends on how many you are cooking for. I used 3.
- 1-2 cups broccoli (Although I love fresh broccoli, I used the frozen kind for this)
- A block of Mozzarella
- Baby spinach
- Italian Seasoning
- 2 eggs
- 2 toothpicks per each piece of chicken
- Spray Oil (optional)
First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Also, make sure your chicken is defrosted.
Using a cutting board (or ziplock bag), place chicken and secure the entire board with saran wrap. Pound chicken until it is flat and thin.
In 1 dish, whip the eggs together and in another, mix breadcrumbs and seasonings.
Also make sure you slice the Mozzarella.
Remove the plastic wrap from the cutting board and place a slice of cheese, broccoli and a handful of spinach on each chicken breast.
Next, roll the chicken as tight at you can and secure with 2 toothpicks. Brush the egg mixture over the chicken then dip the roll into breadcrumbs. Roll it around and make sure it is completely covered.
Place each roll SEAM down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or tin foil).
Bake for about 30 minutes. I was having trouble cooking the chicken through so make sure it is really done before serving.
Lastly, plate and serve! I had brown rice and spinach with mine.
