How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350*. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. I use my pizza stone covered with parchment paper.
- Cut chicken into small pieces.
- In a large , nonstick frying pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and saute, turning occasionally until golden brown, about10 to 12 min.
- In a small bowl, combine the spinach, ricotta cheese, garlic, parsley, parmesan cheese and 1 of the egg whites. Mix until well blended, Set aside.
- In another bowl, using a wire whisk or fork beat the remaining egg white lightly.
- Cut the bread dough into 6 equal-sized pieces.
- On a floured surface, press each piece into a circle.
- Using a rolling pin, roll each dough piece into ovals 8 inches long and 6 inches wide. Brush the edges of the dough ovals with the lightly beaten egg white.
- Place 1/6 of the chicken cubes in the center of each oval.
- Add 1/6 of the spinach mixture to each.
- Fold the dough over the filling, pressing the edges together.
- Crimp with a fork and place on the prepared pan.
- Bake until browned and crispy, about 15 to 20 min.
- Serve immediately.
- Goes nice with a salad.

Michelle, these look absolutely fabulous and delicious! WoW! I am definitely going to have to try these. I used to not like spinach at all, Grandpa grew oodles of it and I would always try to grimace it down with a slight smile, like oh Yum!, but ...moreshandy in Port Orchard loved it
