DIRECTIONS

  • Drain broccoli well; combine with green onions and 1/2 cup cheese in a large bowl and mix.
  • Pound each chicken breast half to 1/4-inch thickness, and top each with a piece of ham and 1/6 of broccoli mixture.
  • Fold chicken in half over filling; tuck thinner ends under (use toothpicks to hold in filling if necessary).
  • Mix bread crumbs, parsley, and paprika.
  • Brush about a tablespoon of melted butter over chicken, and coat with seasoned crumbs.
  • In a 13"x9" baking dish, cook chicken, covered loosely with waxed paper, on High 10 to 12 minutes (until fork tender) (High heat on my microwave is 800 watts.).
  • Let stand, covered, while preparing sauce.
  • In a 1-quart bowl, stir together remaining 2 tbsp butter, flour, salt, and pepper.
  • Stir in milk gradually; cook on High 3 1/2 minutes or until boiling, stirring twice.
  • Add remaining cheese, whisking until melted; serve with chicken.
