DIRECTIONS

  • Pound chicken breast to ¼-inch thickness. (We have our local butcher do them here, he butterflies and pounds the breast, so you have a super flat piece of chicken breast.).
  • Fry chopped onion in a bit of oil until brown, set aside.
  • Sprinkle each chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place 1 herbed gouda cheese slice, then 1 smoked turkey slice then 1 white cheddar slice and add a bit of the chopped fried onions on top of cheese in each breast.
  • Roll up each breast using toothpicks to secure if necessary. (I didn’t need toothpicks, if you roll tight enough you should be fine.).
  • Prepare three separate bowls…
  • Bowl 1- Flour: Add some paprika, salt & pepper and a dash of garlic powder to this flour.
  • Bowl 2- Egg: one egg beaten.
  • Bowl 3- Bread crumbs: I used fine plain bread crumbs.
  • Dredge each chicken breast in flour, shake off excess, then in egg and finally in bread crumbs. Its not that bad, I thought it would be, just do it gently in each bowl. You may need to use your fingers to coat a bit if the breast doesn’t pick up enough, it worked our fine when I did this.).
  • Place seam side down in baking dish that has been sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add 1 tablespoon butter on top of each piece of chicken.
  • Bake at 350° turning each breast once to brown the other side. I think about 45 minutes or so was fine for me. As you can see form pick they came out a nice golden brown.
