Ingredients Directions
  1. Using a mallet or meat tenderizer, pound the chicken breasts until the meat is flat and even. Season the chicken with pepper.
  2. Add a layer of spinach and a slice of Swiss cheese. Roll each breast tightly to ensure that the filling cannot escape. Wrap each breast tightly in plastic wrap. Water must not go inside.
  3. In a deep pan, bring the water to a boil. Place the wrapped breasts into the water.
  4. Use a heat-proof plate to weigh the chicken breasts down and keep them completely submerged in the water. Allow them to simmer in the water for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is completely done.
  5. Remove the chicken from the water and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
