ChickChick Parmesan Roll-Ups

Yes, I know, you are probably wondering why in the world I am baking something “un-sweet.” But, it’s true, I do make other things than cupcakes and candy. This, I’m very very excited to tell you about because you are going to want to jump up, dance around, and run to your kitchen to make these. I didn’t even have to leave the house to make these. I had absolutely everything I needed! Even better!!

Let me just tell you, two whiny boys sitting in the other room as you are trying to make dinner is not exactly pleasant. No, not pleasant at all. After dinner, however, they said the wait was worth it. That pleased me oh so much…now if I can get them to stop complaining. (Lost cause.)

ChickChick Parmesan Roll-Ups
(yes, I do try and make each and every food I make seem like it’s really cute)
Items Needed:
  • 14 chicken breast tenders ( thawed, and pounded to 1/2 inch thickness)
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 4 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup shredded asiago cheese (you can you mozzerella too)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided
  • salt, pepper, and oregano to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 sleeve ritz crackers,crushed
  • Spaghetti sauce (if desired)


1. Preheat oven to 375* and coat bottom of a 9*13 inch pan with cooking spray.

2. Combine spinach, asiago, cream cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan, garlic, pepper, salt, and oregano.

3. Lay out the chicken breasts and spoon mixture equally onto 14 chicken breasts.

4. Roll up chicken breasts and secure with toothpicks.

5. Place beaten egg in a shallow dish. Combine cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.

6. Dip chicken breasts in egg, then coat in crumbs. Top with pepper, salt, and oregano.

7. Place in dish and bake for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is browned on top and cooked through.

I would also like to mention that I had a slight malfunction with the microwave during this process. Well, more of a failure. It decided to stop working and there was no way to thaw my spinach. So, I improvised and decided to dunk my spinach in hot water. It was a decent idea until the water got inside the spinach and it squirted all over me. Not very pleasant. Just be happy that you weren’t there. Not pretty.
Yum, gooey, oozy, deliciousness.
