Yummy chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese. Original recipe calls for stuffing with a slice of prosciutto and parmesan, but I skip the prosciutto and use reduced fat mozzarella instead (because I usually have it on hand). You can use the same method with any flavors you like.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Saltimbocca

1 pound chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed
3 tbsp olive oil
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
14 ounces reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed from 1 lemon)

Recipe Directions for Chicken Saltimbocca

  1. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess water. Toss spinach in a bowl with 1 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper.

  2. Place chicken breasts on flat surface and pound slightly, enough to roll up. Sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp pepper. Arrange spinach over chicken and sprinkle cheese. Roll each up and secure with a toothpick.

  3. Heat remaining 2 tbsp oil in a skillet over high heat. Add chicken rolls and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Add broth and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until chicken is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

  4. Using tongs, transfer chicken to plates and set aside. Increase heat to high and cook sauce until it reduces to about 2/3 cup, or about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle sauce over chicken, and serve.
