Expert Tips

Another easy way to flatten chicken breasts is to place one at a time in a freezer food storage bag, not sealed, before pounding.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon basil and the garlic until blended. Spread about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture over each chicken breast; roll up tightly. If necessary, secure with toothpicks.
  • 3 In small shallow dish, beat egg with fork until foamy. In another small shallow dish, mix cracker crumbs, 1 teaspoon basil and the pepper. Dip each chicken breast into beaten egg, then roll in crumb mixture to coat. Place seam side down in baking dish.
  • 4 Bake uncovered 20 minutes. Pour pasta sauce over chicken; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until thermometer inserted in center of chicken reads 165°F. Remove toothpicks from chicken before eating.
