Chicken Rollatini with Spinach Parmesan

If your family loves Chicken Parmesan, they will love these stuffed chicken breasts! They are perfect for a large crowd if you’re entertaining, or to feed a hungry family for any weeknight. I have tons of stuffed chicken breast recipes like these Cheesy Jalapeño Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Spinach Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts, just to name a few!

Since making chicken rollatini stuffed with prosciutto and cheese a few weeks back my husband has been craving chicken rollatini the way he grew up eating it, stuffed with cheese and topped with sauce and more cheese. I added some spinach and it turned out delicious. It’s a cross between my Chicken Parmesan and Spinach Lasagna Rolls.

To serve this chicken rollatini, I like to make a big chopped green salad on the side.

To freeze the leftovers, transfer to freezer safe containers and freeze for up to 3 months.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 45 mins
Yield: 8 servings
Serving Size: 1 piece


  • 8 thin chicken cutlets, 3 oz each
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 6 tablespoons egg whites or egg beaters
  • 5 oz frozen spinach, squeezed dry of any liquid
  • 6 tbsp part skim ricotta cheese
  • 6 oz part skim mozzarella, I used Polly-O
  • olive oil non-stick spray
  • 1 cup pomodoro sauce or your favorite marinara sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Wash and dry cutlets, season with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp grated cheese in one bowl and 1/4 cup egg beaters or egg whites in another.
  • Shred or finely chop 1.5 oz of mozzarella cheese and combine with remaining grated cheese, spinach (make sure you squeeze it dry), 2 tbsp egg beaters, and ricotta cheese.
  • Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and spread 2 tbsp of spinach-cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one and keep seam side down.
  • Dip chicken in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down in a baking dish (no toothpicks needed).
  • Repeat with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spray with olive oil. Bake 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, top with sauce then cheese.
  • Bake until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 3 more minutes.
  • Serve with additional sauce on the side and grated cheese.

    Are there any whole wheat bread crumbs out there that don’t cost $14.80 (Amazon). If not, can someone post a link to homemade whole wheat bread crumbs. I can not justify paying $14.80 for bread crumbs.

  2. Why did you switch all your recipes to freestyle points and not just keep the smart point values as well? There is a large portion of WW people that did not switch, or, switched back to smart points after they found they were not having success with new plan. 

    We do love your recipes by the way! I check your meal plan first while thinking about the menu for the week. Thank you for all you are doing. 

    1. Sorry, I use recipe builder and have no way to know the old points since all the recipes changed in the data base.

    I made these tonight and they were absolutely amazing. My whole family loved them! 

  4.  Made these tonight and they were great. Made some minor modifications … Served with pasta for my carb lovers and and for a couple family members I crumbled crispy turkey into the spinach and ricotta mixture. Also I used fresh spinach, chopped in the  Cuisinart instead of the frozen.

  5. Gina… 
    I want to make this as freezer meal to easily reheat when baby arrives. Should I freeze uncooked? Add sauce and cheese later? What do you recommend?

    Thanks so much!

  6. I made chicken rollatinis with spinach and cheese but I used thin turkey cutlets instead of chicken.  Tasted like veal…mmm good.  They were the hit of the pot luck

  7. How do you freeze.? Do I just put together (without cooking).  If so, should these be thawed first???  Thanks

    I have this cooking in the oven as we speak and its looking good! I used fresh spinach and chopped it up and added mozzarella and parm cheese to the ricotta. Can't wait to see how these are going to turn out. I think ill try that spinach and grapefruit salad since i have a lot of spinach left over!

  9. Made this last night for a date and it came out exactly how I hoped! Instructions could have been formatted so they were a bit easier to follow. I ended up with some extra spinach/cheese mixture that I couldn't stuff into the cutlets (I used halved breasts actually).

    Served with green beans (melted butter and breadcrumbs) and salad.

  10. Loving your recipes! Can u tell me how u get 6 tblsps of egg white? I live in Australia and havent heard that term or egg beaters. I only know wgg whites from an egg.

    1. (Sydneysider) you can buy egg whites only from Coles, in the fridges near smoked salmon and deli dips etc. Just ask someone at the counter.
      However if you want to use actual egg whites the internet tells me that 2tbsp is about 1 eggwhite.

    I just made this for dinner tonight. I was really hungry, and it was worth the wait! I used fat free cottage cheese instead of the ricotta because it was what I had on hand, and added a little red onion and Italian seasoning to the spinach filling. Delicious!

  14. This was FANTASTIC!! Made this tonight for dinner and it was a hit with my family. Thank you for another great recipe!

  15. I have made this recipe before and love it. I love every recipe on this site! Do you think I could put the chicken together early and keep it in the fridge for a few hours? Do everything but add the sauce and cheese and just do that before I throw it in the oven? Or would that end up making it a weird texture? Thanks, Aubrey

  16. I used GF Breadcrumbs for any Gluten Free friends out there!! Still turned out great!! Thanks so much for an awesome recipe that both my GF Self and family can enjoy!! 🙂

  17. I'm planning to do make-ahead meals on Sunday and freeze them to be used during the week. When I make this, should I cook it first and then freeze it for reheating or can the rolled up chicken servings be frozen in the raw state? If frozen in the raw state, should they be allowed to thaw before cooking them? They sound delish!

    I'm a budding cook, my mum is a classically trained chef. I'm making this with fresh green beans and pasta tomorrow night 🙂
    Also not meaning to be nitpicky but this would be a roulade not a rollatini

  19. Just made this with your asparagus with dijon vinaigrette side, it fed 5 people, and everyone LOVED it.

    Love your website. Your layout is so neat and organized and every one of your recipes has been a hit for me and my family!

    Hi! If I make these ahead of time…should I cook then reheat or just leave uncooked and cook when it's dinner time. I am going to make during my kids naps so it will only be like 3 hrs until I cook them. Thanks!!

      I made this for a friend who had lost a loved one, and they kept it in the fridge uncooked for 2 days before baking it, no problem. I'm planning to try it as a freezer meal sometime (uncooked) and just defrost in the fridge the night before.
      You may need to add extra time if it's been in the fridge and is colder. Just check it and adjust as needed. 🙂
      Good luck!

  22. I made this for dinner tonight, and me and my husband both loved it! I will definitely be making it again. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  23. this recipe was fabulous. i substituted the spinach with chopped broccoli because that is what I had on hand. the whole family loved it. even my fiance (who prefers everything fried and was making faces when he saw i was baking it) liked it so much that he took leftovers to work for lunch the next day! thanks. i'm so glad i found your blog. i'm going through all your recipes and loving it!

  24. I didn't have any frozen spinach so I used broccoli cuts chopped fine. It was still delicious. Thanks for the recipe. I love your site.

    I am making this for a friend that lost a loved one. Would this freeze well? I am thinking I'll give it to her uncooked, with directions to bake for 25 minutes, top with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes. If she doesn't use it in the first few days, she can freeze it and come back to it (defrosted first).
    Or should I bake it first, and let her reheat as she wants? I just don't want it drying out.
    Also, I'm thinking I'll skip the breading step… she's doing low-carb… and give it to her in the sauce to keep it warm. Just a bag of cheese on the side for the last step.

  26. I tried this receipe over the weekend with lunch accompanied by a salad ( beetrot and goat cheese) they were a hit, although it wasn't skinny didn't find all the ingredients as stated. definitely will try more receipes pretty soon

  27. Gina this is one of my favorite recipes…have you ever made this and then froze it? if so how long would you bake it? thanks!!!

  28. I have this prepped for to go in the oven! I was really afraid I was going to make a disaster because I had to thin my own chicken breasts, but it worked! Thanks!

  29. I have made so many of your recipes and now this one tonight. I even forgot to back before adding the sauce and still delish!!!! had zoodles and salad on the side – Gina you are a genious!!

  30. I made this for dinner for friends this past weekend and it was a big hit. Very easy recipe to follow and was delicious. Will definitely be making this again.

    I just made this but with Panko breadcrumbs and used fat free ricotta instead. Came out great!

  35. This is the recipe that I and my fiance are obsessed with. I double the spinach and add in a whole bunch of garlic powder to the ricotta mixture (and freeze the resulting leftover mixture for next time) because yum. Also we might have garlic bread on the side, negating the extra spinach. Whatever, this is one of our favorite dishes ever.

  36. I made this tonight for my parents and it was pretty great. They both loved it and I will certainly be making this dish again. Thank you!

    One of my favorites. I have made this for my family, for a luncheon, taken it to a friend's family, and had it when we had company over. Always a hit. It's good with or without noodles under it.

  38. Made this tonight! Followed the directions exactly, except we accidentally put in 10 oz of spinach. It was DELICIOUS!

  39. I have made so many of your stuff and every time it has come out perfect. I am making these tonight, can't wait to try them.

  40. I made these tonight, and we loved it! I modified the amounts a little, because I only had 5 chicken breasts, but it was delicious!

  41. I make chicken parm all the time so this was no sweat for me. It turned out perfectly but I will say with the sauce and cheese on top, it was hard to actually taste the filling. Still good though! And very simple to make! Thank you for the recipe!

  42. I made this last week and my husband and I LOVE it! Great meal and when he took leftovers for lunch the next day, everyone was jealous! I made with Fresh Spinach.

  43. This is one of my favorite recipes. At first I was a little intimidated by the process but it was actually easy to make. And my husband absolutely loves it! Thank you!

    I made this last weekend and it was so delicious!!!! I didn't have any frozen spinach so I added fresh spinach and even some fresh arugula in the ricotta mixture and it was so yummy!

    I have a question – I want to make this dish for a co-worker that just had her baby. I was going to make this and take it out after 25 minutes. Let it cool down and then add the sauce and cheese on top and then freeze it. Would that work or would the texture of the ricotta mixture change? And what do you recommend on how to heat this in the oven?

  45. Made this for dinner tonight was great! I forgot the eggs in the ricotta/spinach mix but still turned out lovely(just a little loose). I cant believe this has so few calories. It was delicious. I served it with a nice big bowl of salad. Was great to have a filling and delicious meal without spending all my days calories on it

  46. I made this yesterday for me and the kids and served it with a green salad. We all loved it. I have lost 20 pounds so far, and am loving trying your recipes! The kids and I are eating much healthier. Thank you Gina!

  47. Made this tonight, it was very good! I added 4 cloves garlic, a bit of crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning to the spinach mixture cause I like more spice. Will make it again for sure!

  48. Could this be made w/ out bread crumbs or what would be a good substitute for them? My husband is diabetic and doesn't eat anything w/ bread or sugar. Thanks.

  49. This was one of the best recipes I ever tried! My husband and I loved it and a bunch of our friends asked for the recipe! Thanks for posting it!

  50. I made this last week for family dinner.. left out the breading as we are trying to do "low carb" nights. It was a BIG hit, everyone is asking me to make it again already 🙂

  51. Very delicious! I used grated romano and parmesan instead of breadcrumbs as a grain free alternative . . . Big hit!

  52. Amazing dish. After I made these, I froze them and they were delicious when re-heated!!! One of my favorites.

  53. Made this tonight and wanted to say it was incredible! Really great instructions and delicious. I am on Weight watchers and have lost over 20 pounds. There is no way I could of done it without the help of your easy to follow and delicious recipes.

    I paired it with a salad and your cucumber ranch dressing. Heaven!

  54. I'm going to make this tonight. Just discovered your site and am soooo excited about all of yr tasty recipes!

  55. Made this with a smokey swiss instead of mozzarella. It was delicious! Thanks for your wonderful recipes.

  56. Gina, just found your website as my daughter saw you on Pinterest!! Absolutley love it!!! We are doing weight watchers and your recipes are amazing…and you do all the work for us, will definately spread the word!

  57. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I didn't have ricotta on hand so I substituted with goat cheese. It still turned out nicely. This recipe made my family's weekly dinner rotation list. Thank you for the recipe!

  58. This was so good! I made it for my family over the holidays and everyone loved it! Thanks!!

  59. Made these the other night and they were absolutely delicious!! There were a lot of steps, which meant ALL of my counters were used (I have a small kitchen though) haha, but it was definitely worth it. I would definitely recommend this recipe.

  60. I don't normally leave comments, but after trying this recipe tonight and your chicken and mushrooms in a garlic and white wine sauce, I am hooked! My husband and I decided to start the year out right by eating healthier and working out some. This website is just what I needed. Great recipes with easy to find ingredients. Thank you so much Ms. Gina for making eating right seem so decadent!

  61. My husband loved it two-year-old not really but I will definitely be making more recipes from you

  62. ?? I made last night and thought it was great and so did my partner my two-year-old not really fond of but I will definitely try something else on this website for her

  63. Made this last night and boy it was a hit!! Will make this probably once a week! Healthy too.

  64. I made this for Christmas Eve and it was a huge hit. Even my very picky father in law loved it. For my daughter who is not a fan of spinach, I just made a a little reserve of the ricotta mixture and put to the side before adding in the spinach. She loved it too. Absolutely delicious and very filling. This was my first Christmas Eve cooking and this recipe helped make it a success. Thank you!!!!

  65. Stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago, and finally made these. SO good! Will definitely be making them again…after we eat the leftovers. Can't wait to try more of your recipes!

  66. Hey Gina…this might be a silly question but when using fresh spinach, do you need to wilt it first or just finely chop it and mix it into the mixture? Thanks!!

  67. Made this last night (used thighs because that is what I had) and it was AMAZING. Thank You for all you do!

  68. This is an awesome recipe. Very easy and looks impressive. I used fat free for the ricotta, some basil pesto, and three cloves fresh minced garlic. Everyone raved. Thanks!

  69. In a word…delicious! The whole family loved it. This is definitely going on my "make it again" list! Thank you Gina!

  70. Made these a couple nights ago & even my boyfriend who rolls his eyes whenever I make "healthier" dishes Loved them! Just found this website & have loved finding great tasting Skinny food for my whole family – Thank You!!

  71. I just made this tonight, something hearty but not heavy for trick or treating……the best i have made in a while! Your baked potato soup is amazin as well. Thanks so much for your inspiration!

  72. Just added the cheese and its in the oven..LONGEST 3 minutes of my life hahaha this looks delicious! thank you for sharing! i just love your recipes!

  73. I did this last night and it turns out just as beautiful out the oven as it does in the picture!

    I wilted some fresh spinach and it works well with that, too. If anything, maybe next time I'd give it a rough chop beforehand.

  74. We made this last night and is was so YUMMY! My almost 3 year old devoured it! We also had a Caesar salad using your dressing recipe, also yummy!

  75. Your rollatini's are my boyfriend's favorite meal EVER! We make all of them without breadcrumbs to cut down on carbs and calories and they still turnout amazing every time!

  76. im making this but one of the people I am feeding has an allergy to eggs.. is there a substitute I can use?

  77. I just made this dish and my boyfriend and I LOVED it! I could not believe it was only 5 points, it was delicious and totally satisfying. I am definitely keeping this recipe because I would make it again in a heartbeat. Love this site!

  78. Gina- big fan. Tried quite a bit of your recipes. Was wondering if fresh spinach would work also? If you had to choose between the pomodoro sauce and marinara, which would you recommend above the other?
    Thanks again. 🙂

    This is my kids top 5 favorite dish! And they HATE spinach!!! They request it almost every week and when we are looking for new things to try they always say……."let's look on that skinny website". :-). Thanks so much for all your great recipes Gina!

  80. Made this for lunch and my husband had the left overs for next day lunch and dinner!! he loved it, thanks for the recipe 🙂 I am now a fan!!

  81. I made these the other night for dinner and served it with some whole wheat penne. It was easy to make and DELICIOUS! Great receipe – I will definitely be making again.

  82. I finally made this recipe and it was DELICIOUS! Everyone in my family absolutely loved it and asked me to make it again soon. Thanks Gina!

  83. Thank you so much for all your recipies. Do you cook the spinach before you put it inside of chicken??

  84. I made this last weekend to test on my family. I wanted to use the recipe next weekend for Girls night. They all thought it was good. When I make again I think I will add some garlic and basil to the cheese mixture for extra flavor. I joined weight watchers this year and your recipes have been a huge help! Thanx!

  85. My Husband who is not in favor for "healthy recipe foods" really enjoyed this plate. He saw me prepare this dish and he commented "Ewwwww spinach YUCK"!!! Well guess what when it was all said and done he ended up eating two of these!!!! Goes to show that this recipe is awesome!!! Will be doing it again soon!!!

  86. Not only fabulous, but EASY. I really thought it would be harder than that. My husband about died! He tells everyone what a good cook I am…what I really am is a great recipe picker and yours are all fantastic. Thanks Gina!

  87. I made it for my family and it won rave reviews! But I needed a vegetarian dinner for one of my kids and didn't have a lot of time, so I made a little extra of the spinach and cheese mix and stuck it between two of her favorite vegetarian 'chic'kn' patties and baked it at the same time and temperature as the rest of it and she loved it!

  88. I tried this last night for the first time and it was delicious! I put the filling ingredients in the food processor and it turned out perfect. Easy to stuff the chicken and every piece had plenty of flavor! Can't wait to try more recipes.

  89. I made this the other night…and I must say It was SOOO Delish!!! Im a good cook…but this was so good my husband didnt believe I made it.
    And it was easy. I will be making this again soon..And maybe doubling the recipe to freeze for another night when I dont have time to cook.
    The only thing I added was sun-dried tomatoes that I Chopped fine and mixed in with the spinich.

  90. I just made this tonight. I've never had any other version of this before, but I love it. The kids loved it which is awesome because of the spinach. I love this website and I am so happy I found it.

  91. Recently found your website and have already made several different things, all awesome! We aren't on WW, but are looking for a healthy alternative to everyday food. These were fantastic! I've been telling all my clients about your site. Can't wait to try more; shrimp creole tonight. 🙂

  92. I made this for my boyfriend and I, we absolutely loved it! I accidentally added to much egg white in it and it still tasted amazing! I cook for my boyfriend a lot and this was by far his favorite dish! Thanks so much! I am definitely making this again 🙂

    Made this last night, and even my 4 year old ate it. His exact words — "Mom, this is the best chicken I ever ate." So there you have it, it was awesome. And I'm usually a terrible cook.

  94. This looks really delicious, unfortunately my oven only goes to 350F, would it be possible to just increase the time and have it still come out the same?

  95. This is my first SkinnyTaste recipe to try, and it worked fabulously!

    Thank you, GINA, for doing all the work in calculating PointsPlus for us WW chicks! This is why I will be recommending your site to my friends!

  96. I tried this tonight for my hubby. He loved it! The cream cheese and breadcrubms were such a nice touch. We'll be returning to this recipe often I think… lol!

  97. I added 2 cloves of sauteed garlic to the spinach mixture and red pepper flakes to the tomato sauce topping for added flavor. It was easy and delicious – I will make this again!

  98. god this entire page is like Nirvana! Just looked at your gingerbread recepie and i'm amazed. this is wonderful!

  99. I made this for my family tonight.. It was sooo yummy! Everyone loved it, even my brother! I will definitely make it again soon! 🙂

  100. I finally made this tonight and my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it! Sooo delicious!

  101. Made this tonight and it was a hit!! I did change a few things because of the way I am trying to cook now. Lower fat and salt. I made my sauce from fresh Roma tomatoes because we are watching salt content. I also used fat free cottage cheese and drained it so it was drier like ricotta.
    I LOVE your site!! I have made several recipes since I found it only 2 weeks ago. Please keep it up!!!

  102. I made this tonight for my family! We really enjoyed it… next time I will add sauteed onions and garlic to the filling! Make sure to add salt to the filling!

  103. Made this last night, it was fantastic. I am trying to find quick and healthy meals for my family and your site has the most delicious recipes. I can't tell you how many recipes I throw away after trying because they are so bland and tasteless. After I served this my husband and son both eyed it suspiciously when I set it down. Both of them inquired about fat and calories and I showed them the recipe with the stats. I served this with salad with low fat dressing and they were more than satisfied and asked if they could take the leftovers to work for lunch. Thanks so much for making healthy eating delicious!

  104. Making this tonight-how long does the prep usually take? I am a novis chef, so i'm a little bit nervous! Thanks for the recipe!

  105. Hi
    Your Chicken Rollatini with Spinach looks tasty
    You can submit your Rollatini with Spinach pics on It is a food photography site where members can submit all food pictures that make readers hungry 🙂
    I am already hungry to see these photos btw, LOL

  106. My entire family LOVED this! My picky daughter asked me to make this on a weekly basis! In the past 2 months I've made at least 10 skinnytaste recipes and not one has disappointed! I am a BIG fan of yours!!

  107. OMG! Made this tonight and my family ate it up! Took the leftover spinach mixture, put in a pie shell and made quiche! Yum!!!

  108. I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! I cannot believe it is only WW 5 points plus! I made it for the whole family only skipped the spinach for my husband. He loved it too! Making more recipes this week..Love your website!!!

  109. I made this last night for dinner and it was a hit! I am newly married and I lack a lot of confidence in the kitchen, but this made me feel like a superstar. It came together beautifully and tasted great. My husband, who isn't a big fan of leftovers, is excited to have it again for dinner tonight. Yay – I have the night off in the kitchen! 🙂

  110. I just made this! Fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing! Will be taking leftovers for my Dinner tomorrow!

  111. These are delicious! I made them for a big family dinner and everyone loved them. I used fat free ricotta and served with extra marinara sauce on the side. Thanks!!! Your website is amazing.

  112. I made these last night..the were crazy good. My 3 year old had 2..which is how much I ate. It was a "big" hit! Thanks Again for good food for the body and the soul!

  113. Wow! This is delicious! Thank you so much. I'm a busy momma of two boys and I never like to cook. I have also joined weight watchers to try to get some of this baby weight off. I made time to cook this meal and it is a huge success.

    Thank you!


  114. I'm sorry if you've already answered but how would you cook from frozen? I'm not so well versed in cooking and reheating frozen food. Thanks!

  116. I'm making this dish for a Weight Watchers dinner party I'm hosting. Can't wait!

    Do you brine your chicken before prepping or does it just depend on the recipe?

  117. I made this the other night and, as always, it was DELICIOUS. My Mom used to make stuffed shells, and this had a verrrry similar taste. Except more healthy and it kept me more full thanks to the protein in thethe chicken instead of the carbs from the pasta. The kids loved it too… that's always a challenge trying to get them to like healthy food.

  118. Oh my gosh!! I made this recipe for my boyfriend and his family tonight and everyone couldn't have enough of it! I thought there was going to be leftovers but the baking dish was basically licked clean! Thanks so much Gina! I've made three recipes so far ( this one, the coconut chicken salad, and the steak sandwich one) and everyone has loved all of them. Three for three so far and I think it'll keep going 🙂


  119. This was perfectly wonderful. My husband actually made it and it tasted like something from a restaurant but so much better. Leftovers tomorrow night will be yummy….

  120. We had this tonight and it was fantastic! Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes! It makes being on weight watchers much yummier!

  121. I brought these to my sister's for Easter. Everyone loved them! Very easy to make and very, very good to eat! Thank you, Gina!!!

  122. This has become a family favorite! I absolutely look forward to this dish every couple weeks! My picky mother and 8 year old niece both got on board as well, and love it!

  123. I made this last nite for myself and my 2 roommates who are boys. It was a hugeeee hit! This is probably my favorite receipt so far from you site, probably because of my love of sauce and cheese. I did add a lil garlic powder and salt to the spinach/ricotta mixture, and i used shredded reduced fat mozzerella in the mixture instead of cutting up the cubed one use for topping. Other than that followed it exactly and it's amazing! i will be incorporating this into my regular menu thats for sure! Thank you Gina!!!!!!!!!

  124. Just made this for my girls who are always turning their nose up to anything new. They LOVED it! It was soooo good! Love this site!

  125. Anyone know if this can be made without the breadcrumbs? I need to adhere to a gluten-free diet because I have celiac disease.

    1. I made it last night and I think it would work find without the breadcrumbs/cheese breading. There is plenty of flavor from the filling, marinara and cheese. Good luck!

    2. Would dredging one side of the chicken in flour before assembling/ filling it work?

  126. This was amazing! Not as pretty as yours, but not even my picky kids turned it down. They have actually enjoyed several recipes from your site. It makes me happy to be feeding my family healthier meals too! Great recipes! Thanks! Oh and I added 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic to the filling and no pepper. Great!!

  127. This is delicious. I made a big batch and gave half of it away to a family in a medical crisis that needs dinners. We got a really nice thank you note from them. Both families enjoyed it. And I was impressed that this amount of cheesiness is only 5 points per serving. Tastes like mores,

  128. loved it…easy to make and filled my crave for chick parm (the not so 'skinny') kind. whole family loved it!

  129. It's just my husband and I, do you think this would freeze well or should I jut cut the recipe in half?

  130. This was also a BIG HUGE DELICIOUS hit in my house..also did the zucchini with arugula was to die for! Thank you

  131. I made this last night, a wonderful, easy recipe that my boyfriend went crazy over! I served it with rice (cooked in chicken broth instead of water, with chopped mushrooms and onions). The two went great together!

  132. Oh my gosh! this was the most amazing dinner! Thank you sooo much for creating this!

  133. Wonderful recipe! My husband fell in love with these. I used parmesan flavored panko instead of bread crumbs and parmesan. I also used twice the amount of ricotta cheese because I didn't have enough mozzarella. I'll be making this dinner all the time now. Thank you!

  134. This was the first recipe I made from your blog… it was awesome! Thanks a ton. I already picked up a head of cauliflower to try the fritters. Thanks!

  135. Hi Gina! First of all, I love your site!!! I use it all of the time. I'm on weight watchers, so you are my life saver!! 🙂 Thank you. As I type, this recipe is in my oven. Can't wait to try it! 🙂 Thanks again!

  136. This was absolutely delish – even my 5yr old LOVED it! Thanks Gina – I haven't tried one recipe yet that we haven't loved .. tonight it's the crock pot chicken enchilda soup 🙂 Amy in AZ

  137. I'd have to say that this is my new favorite all all of your recipes I've tried so far, it turned out perfect and was easy to make! Thank you so much for all you do!

  138. I know by all these comments that you know this is a hit but I couldn't not write about it too! I made this tonight and my husband said it was restaurant worthy! He loved it and had no idea it was light. I did add extra cheese on his because he's trying to gain weight if you can imagine that! I love your site, thanks for the awesome WW recipes.

  139. I made these for dinner last night. Everyone loved them! Thank you for posting this recipe!

  140. Made this last weekend. Very good. Gina, do you use a thermometer to check the temp before adding the sauce? I didn't do that at first and I had to put them back in for a bit longer. This seems to happen when I do any kind of "stuffed" dish. It might just be my oven?

  141. I am new to your website, as well as to WW. Let me just say THANK YOU!! This was absolutely delicious. I have a husband who is not on WW, and 19 month old twins, one of which is giving us a very hard time when it comes to veggies. This was a wonderful way to get some spinach into him. Anything covered in sauce and cheese is a winner in his book! It isn't easy being on a diet when you have 3 other mouths to feed who aren't. My husband can help himself to whatever size portion he wants because it is "real food" that he is eating, not diet food. I printed out so many of your recipes and I can't wait to try them all!! Thank you for giving me recipes that I can feel good about feeding to my family, and that don't taste like cardboard!!

  142. Hello I love your recipes! How do you think it would taste if the spinach and mozzarella were mixed with shredded sundried tomatoes?

  143. Hi Gina – I made this last night for the BF and it was a huge success! So delicious! Served it with some steamed veggies and even made an extra for today's lunch. I've been loving your site and recipes!

  144. Thanks for a great recipe! I'd like to serve these as an appetizer with a sauce for dipping. any recommendations?

  145. I made this and it was Awesome. My Boyfriend LOVEDDDD it!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  146. I made this last night! It was fabulous! I did add some fresh garlic to the spinach/ricotta mix, just to give it a little more flavor! I would def. make it again! Thanks for this GREAT site! I'll be back for more!!

  147. This was AWESOME. My picky eater hummed "mmmmm" with every bite. Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes, tips & etc.


  148. This was AWESOME! Even my picky eater hummed "mmmm" with every bite. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes!

  149. Made this tonight and the whole famil loved it! Will definitely repeat, thanks Gina, I am obsessed with your recipes right now!

  150. made this tonight for dinner, was the best recipe yet (was your 8th recipe in two weeks that i have tried) so glad i found your site!

  151. I made this for dinner tonight! It was fabulous! I just pound my only chicken breasts into cutlets.

    Made this last night with fresh spinach… it was absolutely delicious. definitely making this one again soon!!!

  153. I made this the other night. I cannot believe how delicious it is and for only 4 points. Bookmarked your website! Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!!

  154. I love this recipe, I cook it often for my mother and now it is a new favourite at my sister's home.

    Thanks again!

  155. This was SO good! I made it this evening for my boyfriend and I and you'd never know it was low-cal. I added some garlic powder and minced garlic to the stuffing. Had it along side a salad and on top of a little bit of whole wheat pasta. Delicious! We'll definitely be having this again.

    Wow, that looks amazing. I cannot wait to make it next week.

  157. Gina, these were absolutely delicious! I accidentally put 16 oz of spinach in and my boyfriend still loved it! We put the extra insides around the chicken and made some asparagus on the side 🙂 Thanks for this great recipe!

  158. WOW THIS WAS YUMMY!! I made it with cottage cheese rather than the ricotta and baked it a little longer. It's now my families favorite (knocking off Ginas recipe for oriental drum sticks)! Thank you Gina..I mention you at every WW meeting 🙂

    Trying the peanut butter pie tonight..Can't Wait!

  159. Gina,

    I am part of a freezer meal group.. Do you think this would freeze well? If so, what are your recommendations for doing so? This looks SO delicious.

  160. Any suggestions on what I could use instead of spinach? I read through some posts, but didn't see any that said they didn't use spinach. Thank you in advance.


  161. This was fabulous and didn't taste in the least bit diet-y. Thumbs up from the hubby too 🙂

  162. I made these tonight with your roasted parmesan green beans. Everyone cleaned their plates including my picky 3 year old. After dinner he gave me a hug and said "I love your dinner Mama". :oD

  163. It is so so very nice to see skinny recipes that fit for me! So many i have looked into are just not what I eat. This is exactly what I have been looking for! Gina you are amazing.

  164. I've been trying to eat less carbs and your website is incredible! Thank you so much for posting all these!

  165. BAKING AS i write this comment. Easy to make, looks great so far and perfect portions! I bet its gonna taste great.

  166. This recipe is a keeper! I made this last night and it was so simple and delicious! The only thing I did different, which I recommend, is to chop up fresh spinach in place of that watery frozen stuff. I will be making this one again! Thank you!

  167. This was an awesome dish! I have yet to make anything on your site that was not great. Thanks Gina!

  168. I made this for my husband and 2 sons for Valentine's Day…They loved it! I was able to save one for my lunch and relished every bite. Can't wait to make them again.-Celeste

  169. I made this tonight for my family & it was a huge hit! I added some pesto to the spinach stuffing simply because I love pesto & it seemed appropriate! I also made it a little lower in carbs by using low carb bread mixed with almond flour for the bread crumbs!…fabulous recipe! Very tasty!

  170. When I made this dish I didn't have any spinach but did have chopped broccoli. Yummy!!! It is now a family favorite!

  171. I just made this and it is SOOOO gooooddd! I had to add a little cream cheese to the cheese-spinach mixture because my ricotta cheese wasn't very creamy. I also left half of the chicken breasts w/out tomato sauce and cheese and they were amazing as well. Thank you so much for the recipe!

  172. Making this for the 2nd time and plan to keep the recipe stored away bc it was such a crowd pleaser. Also I dubbed cottage cheese as I do with manicotti and it turned out awesome yum yum! Thanks for posting 🙂

  173. Made these last night for V Day dinner….the Bombay! Delish! Totally keeping this recipe and making for company. Thanks….love your recipes!! 2nd recipe two days in a row now! 🙂

  174. I made this tonite for VDay dinner along with spring mix salad and it was a hit. My hubby just loved it and asked for seconds….I made extra to have it for lunch 2morrow. Posted the pic of my dish on Facebook and now u will get more ppl to follow ur blog

  175. Wow! Made this for my Sweetheart for Valentines. It was a hit. We both loved it. I did especially, one of my favorite places to eat out is Olive Garden. I haven't been there in ages. This made me feel so special, even though I cooked (which I love to do) I felt like we were eating at a very nice restaurant. What a treat! I will definitely repeat this meal.

  176. I am making this tonight for our Valentines dinner tonight. Can't wait to actually eat it! Thank you!

    I made this for Sunday dinner… yummy! I want to thank you for making weight loss easy. My husband is having a great time tasting all the new and "healthy recipes". Love, Love, Love skinnytaste!

  178. I made this and it was so yummy!! It doesn't taste like it would be healthy 🙂

  179. This was so amazing and so easy to make…almost husband said it was restaurant quality!!! Love your site and can't wait to try another delish dish!

  180. This was incredibly easy to follow, everything down to the cooking times were exact. I have never felt more proud after making any dish! My husband loved it and that made me feel good! Thank you so, so much.

  181. I made this today. It was SO good. My husband had 3 helpings! He said it's one of THE best things I've ever made. THANKS GINA!!! 😉

  182. I've been following this site for a while but this is the first recipe I made. It was so delicious! Thanks so much.

  183. Delicious!!!!!! My husband said this was top 5 dinner I have ever made!! Trying your chicken enchiladas next!

  184. Is there a way to make this without breadcrumbs? This looks yummy but I need to avoid grains as part of a diet I am on. PS LOVE all your recipes I have trie so far!

    1. You could use ground nut/seed flours (think almond, hazelnut chestnut flour…ground golden flax seed…crushed plantain chips or even crushed pork rinds OR crushed asian "beignets de crevettes" (the round snack chips made of manioc and shrimp!)!

  185. Found this recipe via Pinterest, just made these tonight and WOW! So tasty!! The local grocery store has the very nicest boys working behind the meat counter–I grabbed a pack of tenderloins from the case and they ran them trough their magic tenderizing machine. They worked perfectly!

  186. I also made this tonight with the Parmesan green beans. My roommate could not stop saying how much he loved everything. I just found your website and have already recommended it to so many friends! Thanks so much for the great recipes!

  187. My fiance and I made this for dinner tonight and we loved it! It's healthy, filling, and delicious!! Thanks for the great recipe! 🙂

  188. Made this tonight for my first meal on weight watchers. If every "skinny" meal tastes this good, I will be on weight watchers for the rest of my life!!! Thank you!!!

  189. This was my first Skinny Taste recipe and everyone loved it!! I had some leftover spinach mixture, which I put in an egg white omelette for breakfast the following morning. It was delicious and really filling! I'm definitely a Skinny Taste believer!! Thank you for the amazing recipes 🙂

  190. Made this dish last night (used fresh spinach) and it was such a HIT! I will make is over and over again. I stuck to one serving and my husband ate 3!! I think he would have had more if I hadn't packed up the rest for lunches 😉 thanks for making me the hero tonight!

  191. These were fabulous. I am a weight watchers member and I am always looking for new ideas for lunch and dinner that will fill me up. This definetly did the trick. I had them for lunch and dinner for 3 days. I could not get enough of them.

    Thank you….

  192. This recipe was lick the plate delicious! I cooked them and froze the extra portions and they were just as amazing reheated.

  193. It sure did help! I made it last night and my husband actually said it was "Fantastic!"
    I have never cooked before and everything ive tried he has loved!

  194. Leria, I read that as:

    1st bowl = breadcrumbs and cheese
    2nd bowl = egg whites/beaters

    Hope that helps!

  195. I have whats probably a dumb question. I am just learning to cook now and don't understand this step:

    Combine breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp grated cheese in one bowl and 1/4 cup egg beaters or egg whites in another.

    In the second bowl is it the egg whites with the breadcrumbs or the eggs with the cheese?

    LOVE the blog! Ive never seen stuff so easy and everything I have made so far has come out great!

  196. Made this tonight and everyone, including my picky 16 month old, loved it. Thanks for sharing!!!

  197. I made this one last night, and it is amazing! It was good the next day, too. I'd love to try it with the broccoli!

    SO glad you all liked them!

    I never used cottage cheese in place of ricotta, but if I had to, I think it would work.

    I have not used gluten free crumbs, I did try them with almond meal but was not a fan. I might leave the crumbs off for a gluten free option.

  199. I made this recipe tonight and my boyfriend and I LOVED IT! Today was the first time I had ever seen this site and will be back! Thank you for the great recipe.

  200. This was SO incredibly yummy!!!! Best 5 point dinner ever! Made with sauteed snow peas and rice pilaf. Delish!!

  201. Have you ever used any gluten free bread crumbs? I just found out that my 14 year old son is allergic to wheat.

  202. So good!! I made them without breading to save on the carbs. I also (accidentally) mixed all of the mozzarella in the filling! I didn't use sauce or top with cheese. I topped them with sauteed spinach and mushrooms. Will definitely make them again! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  203. The family LOVED this, going to be a new regular for dinner. Simple to make and healthy too! Thanks so much 🙂

  204. AMAZING, I love these, I can't believe they are only 5 pts each. My husband loved them too. I'm definitely going to make them again soon.

  205. Perfectly simple, perfectly delicous. My husband can't wait for me to make them again!

  206. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I shared it with all my FB friends as well. I dont like ricotta cheese so i substituted with low fat cottage cheese. sooo good!

  207. Made these tonight and they were AMAZING! And really quite easy! Can't believe they are only 5 points. Planning on freezing the rest, since as a single gal trying to loose a few pounds but not wanting to eat so many pre-packaged, processed foods I'm trying to cook more. Made the kalua pork this weekend and that was fantastic too.

    Thanks for what you do Gina.

  208. I made this last night for the first time and it was delicious! I am not much of a cook but lately I am experimenting more. I was so proud of myself. Great dish!!

  209. I just finished making these, yummiest things ever!! Thank you for another amazing meal!

  210. Mmmmm, that stuffing looks amazing. Same thing could happen with some pork tenderloin as well. Thanks for sharing!

  211. Made this tonight and it was so yummy! It tasted indulgent, but I was so glad it was only 5 points. I used Newman's Own marinara, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. I can't wait to take leftovers to work tomorrow.

  212. I am new at cooking, but I made this last night and it was AWESOME! My husband loved it and it was in my diet! Thanks!

  213. Made this last night- a little labor intensive, but delicious! And I can't believe the low WW P+! THANK YOU for sharing these recipes and sharing the points plus values. I got a little hung up on the "6 tablespoons of egg whites" but after looking it up, I learned each egg white is 2 1/4 Tb, so I just used three. Tonight I'm going to try the sausage and bean soup. Thanks again!

  214. Hi Gina-I see you mentioned that you can replace Ricotta w/Moz cheese. My son is allergic to eggs, so cannot have ricotta, but I have read that you can use drained cottage cheese as replacement…do you think that would work in the recipe or just go w/moz??? Thanks, have loved every recipe I have made of yours so far! Nikki Y

  215. Two teenage sons both said "As good as anything we can get at a restaurant". Thanks for such a great recipe that is both light in calories and easy to make!

  216. I'm not a big cook, but your step-by-steps are great. I tried this tonight–mine didn't look near as pretty, but it tasted AMAZING!! Thank you!

    This is SOOO good! I made it with fresh spinach because I was trying to use up a bag. Hubby scarfed down 2 servings and I was soo tempted to join him! Saved a portion for lunch Monday instead. I laughed out loud though, because when I was putting the leftovers in a container, he took the spoon from me and made sure every single scrap possible was scraped out of the casserole dish– he didn't want me to accidently throw a bite away!

  218. I totally just realized that in trying to halve this recipe I forgot to put the mozarella in the spinach mixture and my chicken is already rolled up and ready to go…oh well it seems like it should still be good. I will still put some on the top at the end of baking. Yummy!

  219. I made this tonight, and it was fantastic! I only added a bit of chopped garlic to the spinach mixture because I am a huge garlic person. My whole family enjoyed it! I just love this site!

  220. I can't wait to try this recipe!! Your blog is an inspiration to everyone trying to stay healthy!

  221. I made this for dinner tonight and we loved it! Thank you so much for a great tasting, low calorie dish!

  222. My son and I made this dish last night – homemade pomodoro sauce & all! We loved it! I will be making this again. Delish!

    I have been basically living off of your recipes lately. Every single one has been delicious, and I finally feel like I can eat delicious food and be healthy! We made these chicken rollatinis for our New Years dinner, and really enjoyed them! I posted a picture over on my blog. If it's okay with you, I'd like to add your website to my blogroll because I love your website so much.
    Thanks for making such great recipes!

  224. Long time lurker here! Got a TON of your recipes in my file. We made this tonight and my 3 and 2 yr old went crazy for it! Thank you so much for all your hard work with this site!!!

  225. This was insanely delicious and so easy to make! I have yet to make something from this site that is bad. THANK YOU!!

  226. I am so excited to cook this tonight for dinner but do ijust thaw out the spinach and then make sure its drained of all jucies

    I was surprised at how easy these were! Really the first "stuffed" chicken I've ever made successfully. I love that you don't even have to bother with toothpicks. I used regular chicken breasts and sliced them in half for thin cutlets (a bit tricky but I got the hang of it). The end result was delicious and filling with a caesar salad on the side.

  228. Hi Gina, I've been a fan of your site for sometime now but don't comment alot even though I've tried and liked many of your recipes, but, I had to tell you that every time I make this one it gets better and better. It's on the menu for tonight with a small side of pasta and a small salad. Can't wait for your homemade sauce to be ready so that I can finish it up.

    I'm going to freeze leftovers for another meal. Has anyone tried freezing them and if so is it better to freeze cooked or uncooked chicken.

  229. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I made it for the first time at Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it (rare feat in my family!)

    Your site is so helpful- especially for a cooking novice like myself! Thanks again.

    Yes, the spinach flavor is subtle, we all love this too!! (especially my husband!)

  231. My girlfriend decided to make these tonight with my help of course, and let me tell u , what a treat.  Although I'm not a big lover of spinach, the combo of sauce , cheese, chicken, of course, and spinach was simply splendid.  

    With a side a angel hair pasta with the pomodoro sauce, and a glass (bottle!) of chianti, it made for a terrific dinner.  And the best parts is, seconds will be had for Monday night football. BRAVO!!!!

  232. I made this and my kids and my husband loved it!! I have a very very pickey 4 year old and she ate every last bite. It was hard to get her to take the first bite but as soon as she did, she cleaned her plate! So so so good!! Thanks for a wonderful site, as a working mom I always am looking for great healthy meals and this is where I come every Sunday as I do my planning for the week.

    I suppose you could use zucchini instead, shred it and saute it first, then mix it with the cheese.

    I just found your page a couple of days ago, and I made your Chicken Taco Chili last night (my 2 year old had 2nds, and my picky eater even loved it)! I would like to make this, it looks so yummy, but I was wondering if you could recommend anything to replace the spinach? I just can't get the family to eat it! Thanks

  235. I made this the other night and it was fantastic…We enjoyed it so much that I also used the Spinach filling as a base for manicotti…just added a little crushed fennel seed and some extra ricotta, parmesan, and spinach and there was plenty to fill an entire box of shells!! Your recipes are great! Thank you!

  236. I prepared these the night before I served them, and although I was worried they would be soggy, they came out great! This was the second time I've made these, and there were a few things I did differently that I think made them better. First, I made sure to really squeeze the spinach dry, including following Gina's suggestion to use a paper towel to get any excess liquid out. Second, I bought the thin chicken cutlets, but I also pounded them to make sure they were all even thicknesses. I think this also tenderized the meat a bit. Lastly, I used panko bread crumbs which added a little extra crunch. Both times I made these were a hit with no leftovers!

  237. We just finished making, and devouring, these! They are so delicious, juice and flavorful. Mine came to a few more points that the 5 posted here (I think because I used a larger piece of chicken breast), but it was still under 8 points and for such a filling dinner, it's still perfect in my book! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!

  238. This is my first SkinnyTaste recipe that I've tried. It was excellent and boyfriend approved! I think this might be added to one of my regular recipes! Very excited to try other recipes too!

    Made these tonight and they were fantastic! My parents loved them. Thanks for another winner, Gina!

  240. Finally got round to making this for the first time, I'm the one who asked if ricotta cheese would be suitable for someone with lactose intolerance, answer is not really, not even for the mild intolerant ones.
    Just thought I will post this so other people with similar problem can find a substitute for the ricotta cheese.
    REALLY YUMMY recipe though, my other half enjoyed it nonetheless

  241. Made this last night and it was awesome! Changed up the steps a little bit to dip chicken cutlet in eggs, both sides in breadcrumbs/parm mix; spread ricotta/spinach/mozz mix; then roll and place in pan. (Just like the prosciutto rollatini).

  242. This was really, really good and totally worth the time to put together. Next time, I will probably add some garlic and onion to the filling. The only change I made tonight was using Vodka sauce instead of straight marinara – we just aren't fans of tomato sauce.

  243. I loved this recipe. I added a few spices to the spinach cheese mix. It was REALLY good. It is now in my cooking rotation. Thanks so much.If I can find recipes this good I can continue to lose weight and keep it off for good.

  244. I made this recipe last night (along with the Santa Fe Chicken)and OMG, it's awesome! I did make one substitution, swapped out the ricotta cheese for low fat cottage cheese. My roommate doesn't like ricotta. It still came out phenomenal! Thank you for the recipes! They really make me feel like I know how to cook!

  245. I made this last week and it was simply delicious!! My guests really enjoyed it, and I can't wait to make it again. Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes!

  246. I made this for dinner last night and it was soooo good! Although I am not surprised… I have never tried one of your recipes we didn't like!! I contemplated halving the recipe since it makes quite a bit, and there's only me and my husband eating them, but I went ahead and made the whole thing. I just only put the sauce and cheese on 4 cutlets, and saved the other 4 for tonight. I'm so glad I made the whole batch… my husband ate 3 cutlets last night, and as soon as he finished he asked, "Can we have these again tomorrow night too?" LOL… he LOVES all the cheese. Tonight I am going to serve them with the creamy cauliflower puree and can't wait for dinner!!

  247. Made this for the first time tonight and it was SO YUMMY! My one year old at a whole serving herself while my husband and I both had seconds. Thanks for making eating fun again =)

    I made these tonight and omg…. so.good. I do have to say that one cutlet was not enough…..not because I wasn't full, but because they were so good I wanted to eat the whole pan.

  249. This was absolutely wonderful! I served it for dinner with my mom and it was really, really good. Thanks for this recipe & your blog. Bravo!

  250. I made this for my family on Sunday and they loved it. It was so easy to make and was wonderful. The filling was great. Another meal to add to the favorites. You are great at what you do and I would love to see you make a cookbook. It would be nice to have something right at my finger tips in the kitchen. Thanks Gina!

    Jen- before draining, funny are they making boxes of spinach smaller these days?

  252. Gina – you truly are talented and I really appreciate all of your hardwork on this blog. I made this tonight and it was (surprise – surprise) a huge hit with my husband. I had extra spinach filling and he had hinted that I make it again tomorrow. Thanks again for the delish meal and all of the time you put into this amazing blog!

  253. Luckily I'm not following weight watchers anymore.. I accidentally bought 4 chicken cutlets, so there's double the filling in each, haha. My lap-band buddy won't let me eat too much though, so I guess I'm just writing to say that these are in the oven and they smell so goooood. I can't wait for dinner tonight 🙂

  254. Made this last night and it was sooo good! Question – is the spinach 5oz before draining the liquid or after? My box of spinach was 9 oz so I just used half, but I felt there was not enough filling for all 8 chicken breasts…

    BTW, I love your blog! This weekend I will be making the Sofrito Chicken Stew. Would love to see all your recipes in a cookbook one day 🙂

    You could replace the ricotta with mozzarella, although I'm not sure that wouldn't be an issue for someone who is lactose intolerant.

  256. Hi, someone I know has lactose intolerance (not severe though I think) Would there be a good substitute for the ricotta cheese? Because I heard they're really bad for people with lactose intolerance. Your recipes look sooooo yummy!!

  257. This recipe was on our 'make' list for a good month…just made it tonight and it was delicious!! Made it with a small amount of pasta as a side – so good…thank you!

  258. I just made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit.
    Thanks for the sugestion 😉

  259. I made this for dinner last night and my husband loved it! Your website definitely gives us great new ideas to get away from boring dinners!!! Making the pepper steak tonight!

  260. La-la-LOVE your site and this recipe! I improvised with panko bread crumbs mixed with some Italian seasoning. It was a massive hit! So tasty, my BF didn't even know it was "skinny." TY!

  261. OMG!!! It was delicious next time I will put some seasoning in my spinach/cheese stuffing.

  262. Made this last night – super awesome! Worked out very well with a side of spaghetti and a green salad! However, I was under the impression that I had frozen spinach in my freezer; turned out it was broccoli. I went ahead and used the broccoli (just steamed it really quickly); turned out sooo goood! Cannot wait to try it again with the spinach though…

    Thanks Gina!


  263. I made this wonderful dish tonight. I ran out of the marinara sauce I used for my side of pasta, instead I used jarred sun dried tomato pesto to top the chicken. It was aMazing!!! Thank you Gina for such a wonderful dinner idea! And so low calorie, to boot!

  264. I made this the other day…It was AWESOME!!!! I've made a few of Gina's recipies and they have all turned out good. (the pineapple cupcakes were a hit too)
    Thanks for all the great ideas!!!

  265. A friend just showed me your site the other day, and I made this recipe tonight! It was delicious, I used fresh spinach, and the ratio of spinach to cheese was much higher, but still delicious. Can't wait to make your Swedish Meatballs this weekend. It's giving me lots of hope for WW! Thanks for the great recipes!

  266. OH WOW! My whole family devoured this meal in minutes. This is my 1st recipe by Gina, but somehow I just knew it was going to be great. I am so excited to have stumbled upon this website & look forward to trying out so many more of your recipes! Thank you for all your hard work!!! : )

  267. I just made these tonight and they were FABULOUS! A new favorite for my family. Can't wait to make them again!

  268. Love this! I used reduced fat provolone slices on top (it's what I had in the fridge) and it was awesome. Definitely in my top 10. Thanks!

  269. This. Was. Awesome!! Even my relatively picky husband went bak for more and – drumroll please – my non-chicken-eating 4 year old ate half of one BY HERSELF!!!!! Amazing. We had it with pasta (to please the 2 year old) and steamed green beans and we were ALL so happy! Thank you. You rock. 🙂

  270. Made this for dinner tonight. Very yummy! My husband loved it! Thank you Gina! So many great recipes I've already made with tons more to try! 🙂

  271. These are delicious!!!! Even my spinach hating husband was a fan and we fought over left overs.

  272. Made this and it was EXCELLENT. Can't believe it's healthy. It was a little involved, but the results were worth it!

  273. I'm a huge chicken parmesan fan and LOVED this recipe! It was the perfect portion size and absolutely delicious! My whole family loved it and was impressed with my skills. 🙂 It took me a while to make, maybe because I'm not an expert cook yet, but very delicious. I'll be making it again, without a doubt!

  274. Hi Gina – I made this dish a few nights ago and LOVED IT! Even my husband, who isn't a fan of any slimmed down recipe, LOVED it. I had panko bread crumbs and italian seasoning on hand so I used that instead of the whole wheat. It turned out great. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes! I am new to your site and can't wait to try more recipes!

    This was delicious! I even blogged about it here:

    I'm so glad my friend introduced me to your site. I foresee many more Gina-inspired dishes in the future. 🙂

  276. Gina,

    Thank you so much for your recipes! I have been a "fan" for a while, but had never actually tried any of the recipes. I made this with a side of asparagus and a nice salad, along with the pina colada cupcakes (in cake form) for Mother's Day. It was a huge hit, an nobody knew they were WW friendly. I'm hooked and can't wait to try more of your recipes!


  277. I made this today! It was awesome! I will definitely make it again! Next time I need to buy better chicken breast that is already cut in the sizes I need. 🙂

    What a fantastic recipe! Two of my favorite dishes in one 🙂 I just wanted to stop by your blog and say ‘hi’ 🙂 We met at the ICBN event in NYC earlier this year. Also, I just added you to the Better Recipes blogroll! (Yep, I am a bit slow…) Hope all is well!

    I'm assuming you are in the US Laura but they shouldn't! I use either the ww calculator by calculating the nutritional info first, or recipe builder. Keep in mind that different brands can alter the n.i. Also I use cooked weight for meat, 4 oz raw = 3 oz cooked.

  281. Gina how great are all your recipes.

    just a question.
    how do you get these point values?
    when i put them into my recipe builder it comes out higher.

  282. Gina,

    My partner and I made these. Incredible. Your blog is amazing and an inspiration for all bon vivants wanting to keep healthy/fit. Keep it up!

  283. Gina,

    I just made this last night and it was yummy!!! My husband and I had the left overs today! We truly love your website! The food is so good! Thank you for creating these ideas and sharing it with us!

    I thaw the spinach in the microwave, then squeeze it dry in a mesh colander. I even use a paper towel to help soak up any remaining liquid. Enjoy!

  285. Hi Gina,
    I love love LOVVVE your recipes. Everyone has always been impressed with my cooking when I make it and I'm not even a good cook! I'm making these tonight, but have a question…(which shows how little of a cooker I am)

    Do you mix the spinach with the cheese, eggs, etc WHILE its frozen? Or do you thaw it first? If you do it while its frozen, do you just put the frozen spinach in a paper towel to squeeze out the extra liquid? haha, sorry, I'm a little slow when it comes to cooking 😉

    heee- Oh glad to hear you got it!!

    Gigi- Yes bake 450.

    Toni- So is mine, so happy he loved it!!

  287. I made this the other night and it was a HIT. So delicious! My husband is so picky and also sticks to a low carb diet, and he LOVED this! I really enjoyed making this and eating it! Thanks for another Amazing Recipe!

  288. Gina, you instruct to preheat the oven to 450; do you continue baking the cutlets for 25 minutes at 450?

  289. drooooling.. 🙂 this is baking in the oven at this very moment and i can wait to try it!! I was the winner of that insulated tote bag and i just got it in the mail today! Thank you!!

  290. Another delicious recipe. My husband says I am 4 for 4 now lol. So easy to make too!

    I just realized I didn't answer some comments –

    Tinamarie: It sounds like you didn't squeeze the excess liquid from the spinach which would make this runny. It should actually be thick.

    Tracy – A veggie version sounds fab and these would freeze great I'm sure!

    Anonymous – Same baking time if you make less chicken.

  292. If I half this recipe how long should I bake? I can't wait to make this tonight!

    1. When I make this tonight, it definitely won't be your first recipe that I've tried and enjoyed!

      I have fresh baby spinach; do you think this could work with that? Should I wilt it then wring it out?


  293. My measure of a successful recipe is whether or not the bf likes its. He was looking forward to it all week, and voted it into regular rotation after I finally made it last night. "Definitely make this again! Especially since it's healthy!"

    Two thumbs up from us!

  294. I tried this recipe last night before i went to work and my absolutely loved it! thank you so much for the recipes you provide to us on your blog 🙂

  295. Fantastic! Everyone loved it. Served with your asparagus w/dijon vinaigrette and apple sauce. Thanks again, Gina!

  296. Well the verdict is out….we had it today for SUNDAY LUNCH! WOWWEEEE!! This is great!! I used PIZZA SAUCE and that made it taste zingy! EVERYONE LOVED IT! I'm a hit! (thanks GINA!)

  297. I made this last night and it was AWESOME! My family gave it the rating of "restaurant quality"! Thanks for the great recipes!

  298. Trying it NOW GINA!!! It is baking as I type and smelling DELISCH'!!! Can't wait for DH to test it out with me. THANKS!!

  299. this dish was absolutely amazing! i made it for my family this past week, and they loved it. i've only made two dishes, but one thing i can say so far is that they are so easy to make and they taste great all the while being healthy for you! i can't wait to try so many more receipes. thank you so much for creating this website, gina!

  300. Do you think I could make these up and freeze them? I have all ingredients on hand, but no one will be around for a couple of nights. Planning to try a veggie version too with thin sliced eggplant!

    This was on our dinner table last night and everyone went back for 2nds except my husband – he had thirds! A few weeks ago I made the filling and homemade dough, as my granddaughter wanted calzones. The only thing I changed was adding Italian sausage. So much of the filling was left over, I froze it. Tonight, I made a quick tomato sauce, we cut and pounded the breasts, and they were ready in no time. Served with sauteed spinach. This recipe will now be my go to company dinner – outstanding!

  302. hey gina, i made this tonight but it was a bit runny, anything that comes to mind that i maybe messed up??? i actually ended up toothpicking it, then removing the toothpicks when i took them out to put on the sauce and mozza. but i think if i hadnt done that it would have been a soupy ricotta yummy mess! any thoughts???

    i should note, it was still INSANELY good…yummmm 5 points?!?! so amazing as usual.

  303. Oh, Gina, this was amazing! I made it for dinner last night. I am so excited to make it again!! We served it with pasta as suggested above and green beans. Thank you so much!!

    I tried this but couldn't find whole wheat bread crumbs so I just used regular italian bread crumbs. This dish was DELICIOUS! My family loved it – thank you I will definitely be trying more recipes.

  305. This was a great dish, super easy to make and tasty. I am personally not a cooked spinach eater but this recipe changed me. I am eating it as a lunch the next day and I think it tastes better. Thanks for a great new dinner dish.

    Tara, this was Polly-O I believe.

    Heather, Roberta, Jessica, so happy everyone loved them!

  307. I made these tonight and I have not heard my family rave so much about one of my meals!
    SO TASTY! My father and sister are not big on the whole low fat thing and they loved 'em.

    Thank you for all your delicious recipes

  308. OMG! This was the bomb! My husband and I love-love-loved it. I just served it with steamed green beans and it was plenty! I didn't follow the measurements exactly so I ended up with a lot of extra spinach mixture…which was great because I quickly whipped up 4 spinach lasagna rolls for tomorrow night's dinner. Yum!

    Thanks, Gina!
    On Twitter:

  309. Curious about the cheese on top… Did you use like a ball of fresh mozzerella or a block?

    Looks amazing!

    They carry them in my supermarket, you could make your own or just use what you can find.

  311. Gina, where do you find whole wheat bread crumbs? I have been unable to locate at Publix or Kroger here in TN. Thanks for all your work. I look forward to your new posts. So far mini turkey meat loads are my absolute favorite of yours!!

    Good for you Holly!

    Welcome Kate! Yes, I'm like a talking cookbook 🙂

    Thank you thank you Martha!

    Anonymous – for salt, if you're not sure, you're better off adding less. You can always add more later but you can't take salt away if you overdo it.

    Heather – Pasta is a perfect side for this! I bet it was wonderful with fresh spinach!!

  313. I made this tonight with your sauce recipe! I had to try it as soon as I saw it. I made a side of whole wheat pasta with some of the sauce. The meal was delicious. My husband loved it too and we have plenty for leftovers. Thanks1

  314. I never know how much is enough salt, is there a standard measurement or anything you can help me with? I dont want to but too much salt, but I never seem to but enough. Can anyone help?

  315. Gina, I love your blog! I've enjoyed all the recipes I've tried so far, as have the rest of the family… and they don't even realize that they're eating much healthier. I'll definitely have to try this one too. Thanks again.

  316. I have just heard about your site from a friend and everything looks AWESOME! I am going to try this recipe tonight. I also love how you respond to questions and comments. Thank you!

  317. Gina, this sounds so delicious!! I have currently started 'changing' my lifestyle and eating better. At first, it was for my anniversary vacay my hubby and I are going on in June (trying to get swimsuit ready) but I'm feeling so much better eating healthier and working out that I've decided I will live this way forever! Therefore, I am your newest fan! Love your site, and so thrilled you featured my 'Baked Onion Rings' a while back : )

    Yes, I added 1.5 oz of mozzarella which I through in my chopper and mixed it in with the spinach so that it all binds well when melted and hot. The remaining mozzarella I thinly sliced and topped on the chicken, but you could use grated or whatever is easier. You just want a nice amount of melted mozzarella on top.

  319. OH.MY.GOODNESS…. Gina you have a gift. Every recipe looks good, those I've tried have been delicious, but this one, I don't know why, but I must make this!!! Thank you so much for what you do!!!

  320. Can hardly wait to make this. Can you clarify the cheese portioins on the 1.5 Mozerella does that go on top to bake & when you say add more cheese in the end is that from cheese specified or add more???

  321. This sounds wonderful! Can't wait to make it. You say grated cheese and then put cheese on top. I'm not much of a cook, so I need clarification! haha The cheese on top, is that the mozzarella? Thank you!

    Holy cow this looks so good I am going to try it. My kids are in there early 20's and are still bring there friends over for supper once or twice a week. This would be great and different.

  325. Is this the kind of thing I can prepare the day before and then throw in the oven when I get home from work or is that a dumb idea?

  326. So delish! I had to cook it a little longer as they turned out kind of thick. My boyfriend loved it! =)

  327. Made this tonight but substituted broccoli for the spinach – my hubby even said it was delicious!

    If you can't find them, take a breast and slice it in half so you have two. Then lightly pound it with a mallet to make it thinner.

    Kathryn – enjoy!

      Hi Gina, is that in half length ways or as in slice through the middle to make two thinner pieces? Also, I'm Australian and we don't have pomodoro sauce here or marinara…is a Bolognese sauce similar?
