Chicken Roulade with Apple Vinaigrette

Two 5-oz. chicken breasts
4 leaves fresh spinach
4 slices prosciutto
4 oz. brie cheese
Granny Smith Apple Vinaigrette

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Trim any excess fat from boneless, skinless breasts.

Place each piece of chicken between pieces of plastic wrap and pound with tenderizer or other object until uniformly 1/4 inch thick.

Place 2 leaves of fresh spinach on each breast, then top spinach with 2 slices of prosciutto on each chicken piece. Cut brie into 6 slices.

Place 3 slices on each breast, directly on prosciutto.

Roll breasts up, making sure stuffing remains inside. Secure with moistened toothpicks. Bake chicken about 9-10 minutes, or until done.

Serve with Granny Smith Apple Vinaigrette (recipe below).
