Directions
Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly coat a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and sauté until the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Step 3

In a shallow bowl, beat the egg whites lightly. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the grated cheese. Dredge each chicken cutlet in the egg whites, then in the bread crumbs, making sure to cover completely with the bread crumbs.

Step 4

Arrange the breaded chicken cutlets on a flat work surface. Top each cutlet with a slice of mozzarella cheese and some spinach. Loosely roll each cutlet and secure with 1 or 2 toothpicks. Arrange the rolled cutlets in the prepared baking dish, seam side up.

Step 5

Add the chicken broth, mushroom mixture, wine and lemon juice to the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes, or until browned. Serve topped with the mushroom sauce and parsley.
