Ham and Cheese Chicken Rolls
(This is pretty much like Chicken Cordon Bleu)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 thin slices of Swiss cheese
2 thin slices of porsciutto or ham
1 teaspoon paprika
6 T bread crumbs
2 T grated parmesan cheese
1/4 t garlic salt
1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried basil
3 T melted butter
Pound each chicken breast to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut cheese and prosciutto slices into halves. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer cheese and prosciutto on chicken; roll to enclose filling and secure with toothpicks or kitchen twine. Mix paprika, bread crumbs, parmesan, garlic salt, oregano and basil in a shallow dish. Dip chicken rolls in butter, roll in crumb mixture to coat. Place rolls seam sides down in a baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and golden brown.
I have found it takes more the 25 minutes but i'm a freak when it comes to cooking meat! It can't be raw! I really like this recipe it's really not too hard to make Luke usually pounds the chicken for me the night before I make it. And he usually makes the bread crumb mix too. We kind of make that up as we go too...
