Caprese-Style Chicken Rolls

Recipe inspired by:
Rachael Ray Magazine, October 2010


* 4 chicken breasts
* Salt and pepper
* 1 cup
* 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces)
* 2 tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced
* 1 tbsp basil


1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a work surface, arrange the chicken breasts, pound flat, season with salt and pepper. Divide the spinach among the chicken in an even layer, then top each with some of the basil, mozzarella and tomatoes. Roll up the cutlets and secure with toothpicks.
2. In a pan on medium high, heat 2 tbsp olive oil. When chicken is rolled, place each piece in the pan and brown the outside of the chicken. Turn after about 2-3 minutes, getting the other side golden brown.
3. When chicken is brown, place in oven dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes.

Notes & Tips:

You can try all different cheeses but I used good Pollyo Mozzarella Cheese. Serve this with a salad or light pasta.
