Ingredients

  • 4

    cups fresh spinach

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 2

    teaspoons olive oil

  • 2

    tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon pepper

  • 4

    boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

  • 1/2

    cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs

  • 1

    egg, lightly beaten

  • 2

    cans (8 ounces each) no-salt-added tomato sauce

  • 1

    teaspoon dried basil

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 3/4

    cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook and stir spinach and garlic in oil just until wilted. Drain. Stir in 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. 2. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread each with 1 tablespoon spinach mixture. Fold chicken in half enclosing filling; secure with toothpicks. 3. Place bread crumbs and egg in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in egg, then roll in crumbs to coat. Place seam side down in an 8-in.-square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine tomato sauce, basil and oregano. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 165°. Discard toothpicks before serving. Yield: 4 servings.
