Although I found the measurements out of whack for us I still rated this recipe a 5 star, cause with the adjusted portions it turned out great & tasted amazing. For 4 servings we used 1.25 lb chicken, .25 of flour & breadcrumbs. Filling we used 4 oz of spinach, mushrooms & cottage cheese. When everything came together is tasted great, kinda like a chicken parmesan (but abit healthier with the different cheese(s) & vegys). We really enjoyed this recipe & it was pretty easy to put together... we will definately make it again, thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the chicken thin (or have butcher do it).
  2. In a mixing bowl, make an egg wash of the eggs seasoned with salt, pepper, a tbsp of of Paremesan cheese and parsley mixed well.
  3. Coat the cutlets in the egg wash then in flour and bread crumbs. Saute the cutlets in butter until golden brown, then place in a 350 degrees oven to finish.
  4. In another pan, saute the olive oil and garlic. Add the spinch, season with salt and pepper and throw in the mushrooms. Cook through then transfer to a bowl and let it cool.
  5. Reduce oven heat to 300 degrees.
  6. Put the ricotta in a strainer to drain, then mix with the cooled spinach mixture, Worcestershire Sauce and the rest of the Paremesan cheese. Take the chicken pan out of the oven and spoon a layer of spinach-and-cheese mixture on top of each piece. Add 2-3 slices of fresh tomato and season with salt, pepper and basil and top with 2 slices of provolone. Bake at 300 degrees until the cheese mixture is hot.
  7. Warm the marinara sauce and spoon onto plate. Place the chicken cutlet on top and finish with olive oil and fresh basil.
