This makes a good Sunday dinner served with garlic mashed potatoes.


In a large nonstick skillet, cook spinach in 1/2 inch of water over medium heat just until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain and set spinach aside. In the same skillet, saute the onion, mushrooms and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the seasonings; add spinach and set aside.

Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Spread spinach mixture down the center of each chicken breast. Fold one side over filling and roll up tightly; secure with a toothpick. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and paprika. In another bowl, combine eggs and milk. Dip each roll-up in egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture.

Place seam side down in a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Drizzle with butter. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until juices run clear. Discard toothpicks.
