I just found this recipe online, but although it calls for deli turkey slices, I think pounded-out chicken would be better. Pound out the chicken until thin and put the ingredients in, and roll up, using toothpicks if necessary to hold.


Ingredients:

* 16 oz low fat or FF ricotta cheese
* 1 c shredded lowfat mozzarella
* 2 eggs
* 1/4 cup grated parmesan
* 1 t Italian herbs
* pinch nutmeg
* salt & pepper
* 8 slices deli turkey breasts, sliced about the thickness of a tortilla (or pounded-out chicken breasts!)
* 1 cup low sugar tomato sauce

Directions:

*

Mix ricotta, eggs, 3/4 cup mozzarella, parmesan and spices.
*

Spoon filling down center of each turkey sliced, dividing evenly among 8 slices. Roll up.
*

Spoon 1/2 cup sauce onto bottom of casserole dish. Lay rolled-up "manicotti" on sauce, top with rest of sauce.
*

Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake at 350 till heated and cheese on top is bubbly.

Sounds delish!!! I think I'd throw some spinach in, too.
