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 I wasn't fooling anyone. Funny how Grandpa's know =). Now I like it as an addition to other ingredients! You are on such a kick! =D
