Posting this by request! "Winged" this the other night, and boy was it good! I served it with a creamy, rich mushroom gravy (cheated), mashed potatoes and green beans. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Pound chicken breasts thin between waxed paper or plastic wrap. (*If one end is really thin, you'll want to roll up starting from that end.)But you want them about 3/8" thick.
  2. Top each breast with 2 slices canadian bacon, don't let it overhand chicken, cut in half and overlap if necessary.
  3. Top each with 2 slices of swiss cheese cut in half. *Same instructions as for canadian bacon.
  4. At thinnest end, roll up tightly, tucking in any meat or cheese. *Fold sides in first if you can, I couldn't with mine and they came out just fine. Secure with toothpicks.
  5. In pie dish combine flour and half each of the seasoned salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  6. In another pie dish or small bowl, beat eggs.
