  1. Place chicken breasts between sheets of waxed paper; pound gently and evenly until about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Combine 3 Tbsp. less sodium soy sauce and wine in large shallow pan. Add chicken; turn over to coat both sides. Marinate 30 minutes; turn pieces over once or twice.
  3. Meanwhile, combine spinach, 2 Tbsp. sour cream, 2 teaspoons less sodium soy sauce and nutmeg.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade.
  5. Spoon 1 rounded Tbsp. spinach mixture lengthwise along center of each breast. Roll chicken over filling, lengthwise, and secure with string in 3 places. Place breasts, seam side down, in single layer in lightly greased baking pan.
  6. Bake at 350°F. 30 minutes, or until chicken is tender; brush occasionally with reserved marinade during first 20 minutes of cooking.
  7. Remove chicken to serving platter; keep warm.
  8. Combine pan juices with remaining marinade; add enough water to measure 3/4 cup. Combine mixture with cornstarch in saucepan. Bring to boil; cook and stir until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in remaining sour cream.
  9. To serve, remove strings and cover chicken with sauce.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
