Directions

Combine cream cheese, 1 qt. (1 L) of the mozzarella cheese (or 1 cup [250 mL] of the mozzarella cheese for trial recipe), the spinach and 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the Parmesan cheese (or 3 Tbsp. [45 mL] of the Parmesan cheese for the trial recipe). Spread about 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cheese mixture evenly onto each chicken breast. Roll up tightly, starting at one of the short ends. Secure with wooden toothpicks or short metal skewer; set aside.

Mix bread crumbs and the remaining 3/4 cup (175 mL) Parmesan cheese in shallow pan. Beat eggs lightly in separate shallow pan. Dip each chicken bundle first in egg, then in crumb mixture, turning to evenly coat all sides. Place, seam-sides down, in parchment paper-lined full sheet pan (or in lined half-sheet pan for trial recipe).

Bake in 350ºF-convection oven 18 to 22 min. or until chicken is cooked through (170ºF). Remove toothpicks or skewers.

For each serving: Top 1 chicken bundle with 1/4 cup (50 mL) warm pasta sauce and 1 rounded Tbsp. (15 mL) of the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make Ahead
Chicken bundles can be assembled and coated with crumb mixture ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate up to 6 hours. When ready to serve, place in lined baking pan and bake, uncovered, as directed increasing the baking time to 23 to 27 min. or until chicken is cooked through (170ºF). Remove toothpicks or skewers. Top chicken with remaining ingredients as directed.
