Servings: 6


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 ½ pounds total)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped shallots or onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ of a 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts or walnuts, toasted
  • ¾ cup shredded smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Place 1 chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat process with all chicken breasts.

For filling, in a medium skillet cook shallots or onions and garlic in the 2 teaspoons hot oil until tender. Remove from heat; stir in spinach, nuts and smoked mozzarella.

In a shallow bowl combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Fill each roll, using 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling.

Lightly brush each roll with the 1 tablespoon olive oil; coat with bread crumb mixture. Place rolls, seam side down, in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 400 oven about 25 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Remove toothpicks before serving.
