Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana is Italian comfort food at it’s finest! Breaded chicken breasts stuffed with spinach and cheese topped with sauce and mozzarella.
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.

I made this tonight and it is delicious! Definitely a keeper. Thanks.
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.
Do you think this would freeze ok? If so, at what point would you freeze?
How well does this dish keep for leftovers? Is it best to freeze it?
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.
How long should I bake it if I use 4 or 5 pieces?
I made these tonight and they were absolutely amazing. My whole family loved them!
Are the smart points still the same?
As far as I know.
Can this be made the night before and keep in fridges to bake the next day?
That should be OK.
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.
