    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 (4 ounce) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, not too thick
    • 8 slices swiss cheese (or whatever you like but it should be 2 per breast)
    • 4 slices ham, I used Virginia, use whatever type makes you happy
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, I use unseasoned
    • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt, I usually eyeball it
    • 1 teaspoon butter, melted, optional (I think it will make the coating less dry)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with a silicon liner or whatever you like to use.
    2. 2
      Rinse and pat dry breasts. Layout breast, 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham, then roll from larger end towards pointy end and close with one toothpick. Set aside until all chicken is done up to this point.
    3. 3
      In a small dish or bowl, slightly beat an egg and set aside.
    4. 4
      In another small dish or bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, seasoned salt and butter.
    5. 5
      Dip rolled up chicken in egg, then breadcrumb mixture and place on baking sheet - repeat with rest of chicken.
    6. 6
      Lay one slice of cheese over each coated chicken breast.
    7. 7
      Bake approx 20 min, use a thermometer to measure internal temp to be safe.

      Delicious chicken, for sure! I used large breasts so definitely had to pound 'em down a bit! Also used breadcrumbs that I made from a nutty, whole grain bread that we enjoy so much, & the resulting meal was delightful! Followed your recipe, except that I, too, used slices of honey baked ham from the deli! Many thanks for this great keeper of a recipe!

      This was delicious and was very easy to make. I did however, put deli ham instead of the regular virginia ham. I put the chicken after it was cooked in homemade bread and my husband took it from his lunch and he loved it. Thank you for sharing. Chef#220151
