Something a little different to do with chicken breasts, fancy enough for company, but not too time consuming for a weeknight. I would serve with wild rice and a nice veg, maybe asparagus.

Directions

  1. Butterfly the breasts, spread open, and pound to 1/2-inch thickness.Top each breast with slice ham and slice cheese, tucking in any protruding ends.
  2. Brush the edges of each breast with egg, fold in half and seal in the ham and cheese. (save remaining egg).
  3. Pat the outside of the chicken dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat 2 Tbsp butter in skillet over med-high until the foam subsides. Meanwhile, brush more egg onto the seam of each breast. then dredge in flour, shaking off the excess.

I forgot to fry them to make them pretty and brown and I used shredded colby jack cheese! That was all that I had on hand. These were so good! The chicken came out moist and the sauce was really very good and easy to make. I will be making these again soon. Thanks for the recipe.
