Spinach Chicken Rolls

I was playing around in the kitchen and thought this would make a great combination. It definitely did! This recipe serves 2.

Two chicken breasts, thawed
2 cups of fresh spinach
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup parmesean cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2-1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1. Pound chicken with a meat tenderizer until very thin

2. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add spinach. Stir until spinach starts to wilt. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder and stire. Add cheeses and stir until they have just started to melt. Remove from heat.

3. Put half of spinach mixture at one end of chicken breast. Roll around spinach center. Repeat with the rest of the spinach and chicken.

4. Melt remaining butter and brush over chicken rolls with a pastry brush. Roll chicken in breadcrumbs.

5. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is done.

I served it with fresh green beans, and angel hair with olive oil, diced tomatoes and basil.

Bon apetite!
