Spinach Stuffed Chicken

You'll Need

2 Chicken Cutlets (pounded very thin)
1/2 bag of Fresh Spinach
I Clove of Garlic (minced)
4 Thick Slices Cheese
1 Scrambled Egg
Parmesean Breadcrumbs
Salt & Pepper

Start by sautéing the spinach in a little bit of water and once the spinach starts to wilt add the garlic. Continue to cook on low heat until most of the moisture has evaporated from the spinach.

Next, season both sides of the cutlets with salt and pepper. In the middle of the seasoned chicken place down one slice of cheese (I like habanero cheddar for a kick, but Gouda or fresh mozzarella would be great too). Add spinach on top of the cheese and then top with another slice of cheese.

Fold the chicken around the filling and secure with toothpicks or skewers. Make sure they are folded up nice and tight so that all of the cheese doesn't melt out! Next, dip chicken in the scrambled egg and then coat with breadcrumbs. Place on a greased baking sheet and give the top of the chicken a little sprits of cooking spray. 

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes (time will vary depending on thickness of chicken)
