INGREDIENTS:
6 single chicken breasts (24 oz. raw weight) skinned, boned, and washed
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1- 10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
1-1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon basil
2 egg whites, beaten until frothy
3/4 cup bread crumbs

DIRECTIONS:
1. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts. Store covered in refrigerator while preparing filling. In large skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil. When onion is golden, add spinach, and mix together well. Stir in mushrooms and basil. Remove from heat. Spoon half of egg white mixture into spinach, stirring until well combined.
2. On large work surface, flatten chicken pieces. Dividing spinach mixture evenly, spoon portion onto each chicken breast. Roll chicken breasts and secure with toothpick, if necessary. Dip each breast in remaining egg white, then in bread crumbs.
