This recipe was my contribution to The Wild Rose Press Cookbook. It's a good one!
Chicken and Ham Roll-Ups
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
4 thin slices deli ham
4 slices provolone cheese
¾ cup seasoned bread crumbs
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
Heat oven to 400°
Pound chicken breasts to ¼ inch thickness. Top each with 1 slice of ham and 1 slice of provolone cheese trimmed to fit. Roll chicken into bundles. Tuck in ends and secure each roll-up with a short skewer. Beat egg in a shallow bowl. In a second bowl mix together bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Dip chicken bundles in egg and then roll in crumb mixture. Melt butter or margarine in an oven proof skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken roll-ups, turning carefully to brown evenly on all sides. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 15 min. or until chicken is cooked through. Note—If your skillet is not oven proof, wrap the handle in foil. Remove skewers and serve.
