What To Do:

Step 2: Add chopped spinach to skillet and sauté with coconut oil spray until tender.
Step 3: Remove spinach from heat and add to ricotta cheese.
Step 4: Add chopped basil to ricotta mix and set aside.
Step 5: Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten chicken breast and cut into 4 – 4 oz portions.
Step 6: Spoon the ricotta mixture onto each chicken breast and roll them up.
Step 7: In a separate shallow bowl, add egg whites.
Step 8: In another bowl, add crushed Saltines.
Step 9: Take each chicken roll and dunk in egg whites before rolling in crushed crackers and placing in baking dish.
Step 10: Bake for 25 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Step 11: Remove from oven and place 2 tbsp marinara sauce on top of each chicken roll up.
Step 12: Top each roll with ½ oz thinly sliced Mozzarella cheese.

Remove from oven and serve.
