  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices ham
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Toothpicks


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Place each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them to an even thickness, about 1/4 inch.
  3. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  4. Place a slice of Swiss cheese and a slice of ham on each chicken breast.
  5. Roll up the chicken breasts, securing each one with toothpicks to keep them closed.
  6. In three separate shallow dishes, set up a breading station. Place flour in one dish, whisked eggs in another, and a mixture of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in the third.
  7. Roll each chicken breast in the flour, dip in the beaten eggs, and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to adhere.
  8. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add a bit of oil if needed. Brown the chicken rolls on all sides until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  9. Transfer the browned chicken to a baking dish.
  10. Drizzle the melted butter over the top of the chicken rolls.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and has reached an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  12. Remove toothpicks before serving.
