  • For filling, in a medium skillet cook shallots and garlic in the 2 teaspoons hot oil until tender. Remove from heat; stir in spinach, nuts, and smoked mozzarella. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.

  • Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling on each chicken breast. Fold in the bottom and sides; then roll up. Secure with wooden toothpicks.

  • Lightly brush each roll with the 1 tablespoon olive oil; coat with bread crumb mixture. Place rolls seam side down in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 400-degree Fahrenheit oven about 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees Fahrenheit). Remove toothpicks before serving. Makes 6 chicken rolls.
