DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butterfly each chicken breast (cut it length wise with out cutting all the way through). Open it up and sprinkle the inside of the chicken with seasoning mix (Mrs. Dash).
  • Place one slice of cheese inside each of the chicken breasts along with 1-2 slices of ham. I like to fold the cheese in half so it fits better in the chicken and is not hanging out.
  • Sprinkle a little bit of the 1 teaspoon of garlic on each folded combo of ham & cheese. Then fold the chicken over to close like a packet. Secure the chicken roll closed by using a toothpick.
  • Sprinkle seasoning mix on outside of chicken (I also like to sprinkle the bottom as well). Place in an oven safe dish and cover with foil.
  • Bake chicken for 30-40 minutes or until fully cooked.
  • To get a nice golden brown color you can remove the foil after 15-20 minutes or so. Or you can broil the tops for 3-6 minutes when chicken is fully cooked.
