Baked Mozzarella Chicken Roll Ups are the perfect mix of Italian and bake chicken. Lots of cheese, spinach, and marinara sauce baked together with chicken breast. Yum!

What’s better than incredibly tasty Italian food made at home? Incredibly tasty Italian food made at home that also happens to be semi-healthy! These Baked Mozzarella Chicken Roll Ups will change your life.

Okay, I’m not going to go so far as to say this recipe is healthy…because I like my cheese and I refuse to live without it. But it is definitely lightened up a bit to make it semi-healthy. And that’s good enough for me! Compare this baked chicken recipe to say, Chicken Parmesan. It’s got all the same great flavors, but for a lot less calories.

I just love these little mozzarella chicken roll ups, filled with spinach and ricotta, and topped with marinara and mozzarella. It’s such an easy chicken recipe, and it’s still so delicious. You’ll want to eat these up all by themselves, but you could also serve it with veggies, rice, or (better yet) some pasta.

How to Make Mozzarella Chicken Roll Ups

Baked Mozzarella Chicken Roll Ups are the kind of meal your family will request again and again. My picky father-in-law even threw it a couple of compliments! It’s cheesy, it’s flavorful, and it’s oh-so-good. The chicken is stuffed with sauteed spinach and ricotta cheese, rolled up to seal all the goodness in, and then topped with marinara, fresh mozzarella, and chopped basil. All of my favorite flavors have come to dinner!

  1. Cut the chicken breasts in half (making 8 pieces of chicken total), and pound them into thin pieces.
  2. Combine breadcrumbs with parmesan cheese in a small mixing bowl & set aside.
  3. Chop up the spinach and saute it with garlic with 2-3 minutes (just until it starts to wilt).
  4. Combine spinach with ricotta, parmesan, and egg whites, then place the rest of the egg whites in a separate bowl.
  5. To make the chicken roll ups: spoon the ricotta spinach filling into each piece of chicken, and roll them up. Then dip each roll into the egg whites and then the breadcrumbs.
  6. Place the chicken in a baking dish, and pour the marinara sauce into the dish around the chicken.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes at 450°F.
  8. After 25 minutes, pour the rest of the marinara sauce over the chicken, and place a slice of mozzarella on top of each roll up.
  9. Bake for another 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese, then add some basil before serving.

These baked mozzarella chicken roll ups are so easy! They are just perfect on their own, or you can serve them along with rice, veggies, or pasta.
