The chicken started off as just breaded and fried, and turned into this. I served brussel sprouts with melted butter over the top along side this dish. I made this for the first time tonight. I really liked it...I am going to try different dressings and cheeses next time. I don't know why I added the egg but for some reason it just felt right...hope you like it! :D

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 4 -6 ham slices (I used deli ham)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 -2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • bleu cheese salad dressing (amount varies depending on personal tastes)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 toothpicks
  • 1 12 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Heat skillet on medium heat. Pour in the olive oil.
  2. Crack two eggs and whisk them together in a bowl. Take breadcrumbs and also place in a separate bowl.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breasts.
  4. Place ham on the inside of the chicken so the ham is covering the majority of space on the chicken.
  5. Pour blue cheese salad dressing on the ham, making sure you spread the dressing evenly.
  6. Place another slice of ham over the dressing.
  7. Carefully, start rolling one side of the chicken until the bottom end is tucked.
  8. Grab two toothpicks and place one in each end.
  9. Do the same for the other chicken breast.
  10. Gently roll the chicken roll in the breadcrumbs, then egg, then breadcrumbs again. Place on the skillet. Do the same for the other breast.
  11. Cover. Turn the chicken every 5-8 minutes until the outside is crispy, then lower heat to allow the chicken to cook through if it isn't already.
  12. Get a small skillet ready on the stove stop by preheating it in med-high heat.
  13. Once the chicken is almost done, crack the egg on the skillet.
  14. Quickly pour the water in the pan and cover it with the plate.
  15. Once the egg and chicken are done serve the egg on top of the chicken.
