4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (pounded flat if needed)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 slices Swiss cheese
4 slices cooked ham
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 7x11 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thickness.
3. Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast. Roll up each breast, and secure with a toothpick. Place in baking dish, and sprinkle chicken evenly with bread crumbs.
4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no loner pink. Remove from oven, and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to over for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Remove toothpicks, and serve immediately.
(You can also pour a little sauce over the top made from cream of chicken soup thinned out a bit by a little milk or water. And if that is not available you could use a thicker chicken gravy too.)
This is one of my families favorite recipes and frankly I do not make this as often as they would like. We usually serve it with cheesy potatoes and either a tossed green salad or with a fruit salad.
