I like making the chicken this way because it seems much quicker and easier than the traditional way. I can get this on the table in no time. I usually serve this with garlic mashed potatoes and fried string beans.
Put the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a plastic bag and shake to blend.
Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Slice the chicken breasts in half to make them thinner and drop into bread crumbs. Shake to coat and place in the hot skillet. Cook until lightly browned on the first side, about 5 minutes or so. Turn and brown the other side, about 5 minutes or so.
Turn the chicken back over to the first side and place the ham evenly over the chicken pieces. Top each one with a slice of swiss (fold it to fit).
Cover and cook until ham heats up and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
