SkinnyTaste Chicken Rollatini with Spinach

I'm not much of a cook-- I have a few basic recipes I can make but when it comes to cooking meat I rarely make any attempts that don't involve the crock pot because I become insanely paranoid things aren't cooked well enough. I need to invest in a good thermometer! When I came across this chicken recipe on Skinny Taste I thought I would give it a try and it turned out SO GOOD. I almost couldn't believe I made it myself!

I love vegetables but spinach just isn't one that I really care for-- especially cooked-- so I love recipes that allow you to mix in a little bit. I also love mozzarella cheese so this looked delicious! The ingredients are pretty basic for the most part but it requires quite a bit of dishes to complete.

I used....
~1 pound of chicken cutlets (ended up being 5 pieces)
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs*
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese*
6 tablespoons egg whites
5 oz frozen spinach*
6 tbsp part-skin ricotta cheese*
6 oz part-skim mozzarella*
1 cup marinara sauce*

*I didn't actually measure these ingredients I just kind of guessed.

egg whites, bread crumbs, filling
Her actual recipe calls for 8 chicken cutlets and she suggests whole wheat breadcrumbs but I just used what we had in the cupboard. My husband added some garlic powder & italian seasoning to his chicken before adding the mixture.

Despite all the steps I found this recipe to be super easy and it turned out perfect!

She recommends cooking the chicken for 25 minutes and then putting it back in for an additional 3 minutes after adding the sauce and cheese on top. I cooked it for about 30 minutes and then put it back in for an additional 8 or 9 minutes...see what I mean about being crazy about things being undercooked.
