Chicken & Spinach Roll Ups
This one is a great quick and good for you meal! These Chicken and Spinach Rolls Ups require just a handful of ingredients and come together really quickly. They are baked and the crispness is no doubt there. I made a very simple tomato sauce to dip these into. To make this one even easier and quicker, I went ahead and took advantage of store-bought natural rotisserie chicken.You can really make these with any filling... buffalo chicken with a bleu cheese dip, chicken with salsa topped with cheddar cheese, veggies with provolone.... its endless, let the creative juices flow!
