teaspoon of the pepper.

garlic and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add spinach and saute until

barely wilted; stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8

teaspoon pepper.

3. Remove mixture from frypan, drain, cool and divide into 8 parts. On

each chicken breast, place 1 part of the spinach mixture; sprinkle

cheese evenly over chicken, roll up and fasten with toothpicks.

4. In medium bowl, mix eggs and milk. In separate shallow bowl, place

bread crumbs. Add chicken, first in egg mixture and then in bread

crumbs, dredging to coat.
