Makes 3 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (used 1 lb package)
  • 1 egg, whisked well
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs

  2. Dip flattened chicken in egg then into bread crumbs, coating evenly.
  3. In middle of chicken breast place a few spinach leaves, a few pieces of mozzarella cheese and some prosciutto.
  4. Roll chicken up and using tooth picks to hold ends together.
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet and drizzle a bit of olive oil over stuffed chicken breasts.
  6. Bake 350F for 20 to 30 minutes or until no longer pink inside (will depend on how thick your chicken is).
  7. ENJOY!
