Packed with flavor, this chicken not only pleases your palate, but is also quite healthy. To save even more calories, replace the ricotta with low-fat cottage cheese. Even better, it looks impressive but is incredibly easy to whip up for guests or for the family.

Ingredients
2 chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 handful fresh spinach

Mix the ricotta cheese with the spinach. Salt and pepper the chicken as desired. Scoop 1/4 of the the spinach and cheese mixture into the center of the chicken breast and roll up, securing with a toothpick. Lightly brown the chicken in the saute pan for about 3 minutes on each side. Then transfer to an oven-safe dish and cook Cook about 10 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.
