Chicken Parmesan Bundles

This is a good way to get your kids to eat spinach. Just mixed it with a bunch of cheese and stuff it in a chicken breast. It's so good. My kids love it!

adapted from Kraft Food and Family

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
5 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
6 Tbsp parmesan cheese, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
10 ritz crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, heated

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together ritz cracker crumbs and 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese. Place on a shallow dish or pie plate. Mix cream cheese, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, and 3 Tbsp of the parmesan cheese until well blended. Place spinach mixture in the center of each chicken breast.
Roll up each chicken breast. Dip in egg and then in parmesan cracker mixture. Place seam-side down in a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. 
Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve topped with spaghetti sauce and remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
