Spinach and ricotta chicken parmigiana

Have dinner on the table in just 35 minutes with this delicious (and nutritious) spinach and ricotta chicken parmigiana, complete with kumara chips and a leafy green salad.



1.Preheat oven to 210°C. Place kumara chips on an oven tray lined with baking paper; season. Cook chips for 25 minutes or until golden and crisp.
2.Meanwhile, combine 40g of the spinach and the ricotta in a bowl; spread evenly over chicken, leaving a 1cm border around edges. Roll up to enclose filling and secure with toothpicks.
3.Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towel.
4.Place chicken in a greased baking dish; top with passata and mozzarella. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese melts and chicken has cooked through.
5.Combine remaining spinach with balsamic dressing in a large bowl. Serve chicken with chips and spinach salad.

For a healthier version of this dish, omit the kumara chips and bulk out the salad with added leafy greens, tomato and grated carrot.
