Millie and I have been on our baking and cooking mode lately. Millie was in the mood to make some more cookies, but I insisted that would have been too much temptation for me. I would have ate all of them, just like I stuffed my face last time (See that post HERE) I suggested making something for dinner, and she happily agreed. We decided on Chicken Pot Pies, (which I haven’t actually ever tried), but the ruling in the house threw that out the window, no one was interested in eating those!
Since it was already late, and we still had to get to the supermarket to purchase all of the ingredients, we needed to make a decision quickly. After searching the web for a few ideas, we bumped into a recipe that seemed good and healthy enough for all us to enjoy.
We got to the supermarket, and right at check out, we started to to crack up and worry all at the same time, the Credit Card was still at home in another wallet!
Millie’s niece Arlene was a doll and ran back to the house, while Millie and just sat there laughing it off. After paying, and Arlene getting back to us out of breath (poor Arlene! lol) it was time to finally start cooking, it was getting late enough as it is.
You had to see us, all stressed out. The recipe we had originally found seemed more complicated than plans to go to war. I swear we read that thing over and over and some steps just seemed meticulous. There had to be another way. Youtube it was… I swear Youtube has to be the answer for everything, and it was. We ended up finding 2 videos that some what matched what we were going for. So we decided to eyeball and merge those 3 recipes into one, and pray for the best.
We ended up making some rolls without spinach for those who think veggies taste awful, just in case.
After all of that going crazy, the chicken rolls came out pretty good, especially with garlic bread we made to pair it off. They were gone in no time!
I do have to say though, if I was to make these again, which I probably will, I will season the meat beforehand stuffing, The way they turned out was pretty damn good, but when you’re latina and used to having adobo in your life, anything without it seems dry. So next time!
I’m including the recipe for you guys, let me know if you like it when or if you make it!
Recipe(serves approx. 4 people)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry or fresh spinach
- 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 2/3 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
(Obviously we decided to preheat the oven at 350 degrees and bake until golden, then I sprinkled a little of Goya’s seasoning on top to give it a bit more color, instead of breading with panka and frying as the video mentions below. Feel free to substitute recipe to your liking)
