Chicken Roll Ups

Chicken Roll Ups
Adapted from LivingAfterWLS 5 Day Pouch Test recipes

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pieces mozzarella string cheese
olive oil cooking spray
1 bag baby spinach
1/2 onion diced
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons butter

Add butter to a skillet, and sautee onion for a couple of minutes - until softened. Add spinach and white wine and cook until the spinach is wilted. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally.

Put the Italian salad dressing in a bowl. In another bowl - mix the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Bread the chicken pieces in the salad dressing and the breadcrumb mixture. Lay out on a plate or cookie sheet.

Cut the mozzarella sticks in half. Layer cooled spinach mixture on the chicken breast and place a mozarella piece in the middle. Roll the chicken breasts into small rolls - and secure with two toothpicks before placing in a baking dish. Repeat on other 3 chicken breast pieces.

Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
