Very very good! I used two very large chicken breasts pounded very thin, then cut into three pieces each. Then I rolled each bundle in plastic wrap and put them in the fridge for a couple few hours eliminating the need to tie them. I Skipped the egg and the frypan and instead turned the bundles over halfway through baking to brown two sides. Loved the stacked ham & cheese idea and the sauce was great. Thanks!
