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.

Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana is Italian comfort food at it's finest! Made with breaded chicken breasts filled and rolled with spinach and cheese topped with sauce and melted mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

  1. I made this tonight and it is delicious! Definitely a keeper. Thanks.

  2. 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.

  3. Do you think this would freeze ok? If so, at what point would you freeze?

  4. How well does this dish keep for leftovers? Is it best to freeze it?

  5. 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. 

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

  6. How long should I bake it if I use 4 or 5 pieces?

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

  8. Are the smart points still the same? 

  9. Can this be made the night before and keep in fridges to bake the next day? 

  10.  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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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

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

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    • (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.

  17. Are you supposed to cook the spinach? in the microwave or put in frozen?

  18. 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!
