Ingredients

    6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5 oz each)
    1 10 oz organic cut spinach (if frozen, thaw and drain)
    2 oz 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
    1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    1/4 cup fat-free egg product
    12 stone-ground wheat crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
    1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1 cup Muir Glen® organic Italian herb pasta sauce
    1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz)

Directions

2. In medium bowl, mix spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon basil and the garlic until blended. Spread about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture over each chicken breast; roll up tightly. Secure with toothpicks.

    FINALLY got to make this tonight and it was just as good as I thought it would be! Although next time if I use the green onion, I will use a pinch of garlic powder, rather than the fresh garlic because the overall flavour was a bit strong. - 2/25/11
