Chicken Parmesan Bundles

This is an awesome recipe that I got off of the the Kraft website a few years back and it is delish!! Plus it been a big hit with kids as well! Everyone must try!

4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) cream cheese, softened
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1-1/4 cups shredded skim mozzarella cheese
6 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1 egg
10 Ritz Crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
1-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, heated

*Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
*Mix cream cheese, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 3 Tbsp. of the parmesan cheese until well blended; spread evenly onto chicken breasts. Starting at one of the short ends of each breast, roll up chicken tightly. Secure with wooden toothpicks, if desired. Set aside.
*Beat egg in shallow bowl or pie plate.
*Mix remaining 3 Tbsp. parmesan cheese and the cracker crumbs in separate shallow bowl or pie plate.
*Dip chicken bundles in egg, then roll in crumb mixture.
*Place, seam-sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
*Bake 30 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF).
*Remove and discard toothpicks, if using.
*Serve topped with the spaghetti sauce and remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
