Try-It-Tuesday

I got this one from a Kraft magazine. They suggest topping the cooked chicken with spaghetti sauce which would be fine. But honestly I like these better plain, served with a salad and piece of garlic bread.


Chicken Parmesan Bundles

8 oz. cream cheese softened
1 pkg. frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained (I only use half.)
2 c. mozzarella cheese shredded
10 Tbsp. Grated parmesan cheese
4 large chicken breasts, cut in half to make 8 small
20 Ritz crackers crushed
2 eggs beaten

Mix cream cheese, spinach, mozarella, and 6 Tbs. of the parmesan cheese. Set aside.
Crush Ritz crackers, add remaining parmesan cheese.
Flatten chicken to 1/4-1/2 thickness.
Spread layer of cheese on chicken, roll chicken up, secure with a toothpick, dip chicken into egg, then crackers. Place seam side down in a greased 9x13. Bake 45 min.- 1 hour at 375 degrees.

Here's the step by step:
Mix together your cheeses and spinach. Crush your crackers and add cheese to the mix.

Pound your chicken breasts flat. I like to place a piece of plastic wrap on top (keeps the chicken juice where it should be) and then whack them with the rolling pin. I also like to add a little salt to the chicken at this stage.


Put a gob of the cheese on top of the chicken, then roll it right up. Secure it with a toothpick.

Roll the chicken in egg and then the crackers mix.

I forgot to take a picture of them before I baked them, but you place them seam side down, in a greased 9 x 13 and bake 45 min-1 hour until chicken is done. (And yes, the cheesy stuff oozes out a little bit, but you can just scoop it right up and plop it on top.)

Thanks! It was great--although I should have followed your advice EXACTLY. I forgot to salt the chicken (remedied later on, but would have been better if I had salted before) and I should have left out half of the spinach like you suggested. But, it was good and everybody (except for my picky eater who wouldn't even try it) liked it! THANKS!!
