Easy Spinach and Parm Stuffed Chicken Roll Ups


Prep: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes





Ingredients: serves 2


  • 4-6 chicken cutlets

  • 1 cup parmesan cheese

  • ½ cup cream cheese

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes

  • 1 cup spinach or arugula

  • ½ cup basil

  • 6-12 wooden toothpicks







Step 1:

Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease glass baking dish and set aside. Clean chicken cutlets, pat dry, and set on a cutting board. Using a knife and flatten out each piece.


Step 2:

Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper, and fresh garlic. I wanted a very simple taste so I used just these three for seasonings and I love biting into fresh, roasted garlic. If that's not your thing, omit the garlic cloves and use garlic powder.


Step 3:

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and parmesan cheese. In another bowl toss cleaned spinach and basil. On the flattened chicken cutlets, fill each with a thin layer of parmesan cheese mix followed by a handful of the green mix. Roll each piece of chicken up and hold with toothpicks.


Step 4:

Add each chicken roll up to the greased baking dish along with cherry tomatoes and the remainder (if any) of the greens mix. Feel free to drop a handful of spinach and basil to the greased pan. The tomatoes and greens can be used for pasta served with the chicken. Bake for 25-30 minutes.


Step 5:

Serve with spaghetti and marinara or garlic butter noodles topped with the roasted tomatoes and spinach-basil mix.
