Step 1Using a sharp knife, cut each chicken breast in half crosswise to make 2 thin cutlets. Pound slightly and lay them flat on work surface. Sprinkle with parsley, pecans, cheese, garlic and pepper. Roll each one up and secure with a toothpick.
Step 2Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and brown chicken on all sides. Add spinach and pepper to pan. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside.
Step 3Drizzle with lemon juice, if using before serving.
