Beat 1 egg for an egg wash and set up your assembly line for dippng the chicken into egg wash and breadcrumbs.
Pound the chicken out to get nice thin pieces. Remember you are going to be stuffing and wrapping them.
In a bowl, combine the spinach, peppers, cheese, 1 egg and the spices. Mix all together. Place mixture on chicken pieces and roll them. You can use toothpick to secure the pieces and make sure the mixture doesnt leak out.
Dip the stuffed pieces into the egg wash and then into the breadcrumbs.
