  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 1/2 cups fresh spinach coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Romano cheese finely shredded
  • 2 Tbsp Romano cheese finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese finely shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 thin chicken cutlets
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • olive oil non-stick spray


  • Preheat oven to 450° F.
  • Wash chicken cutlets, pat dry and season with salt and pepper.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until golden.
  • Add chopped spinach, 1/4 cup Romano cheese, salt and pepper and saute about 1-2 more minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Set aside to cool.
  • When cool, add mozzarella cheese and combine.
  • Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and spread 2 tbsp of spinach-cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one and keep seam side down.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and remaining 2 tablespoons of Romano cheese in one bowl. In a second bowl combine olive oil and lemon juice.
  • Dip chicken in lemon-oil mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down in a baking dish.
  • Repeat same steps with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spray with oil spray.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.


**Chicken cutlets are boneless, skinless chicken breast thinly sliced. There might be butchers that will do this for you if you ask. I was at Walmart today and purchased thin sliced chicken breast, but it cost more money per pound than the boneless, skinless chicken breast. I was in a hurry and it was worth the extra money. To save some money you could cut the chicken into cutlets yourself.
