“An adaptation of #50876 because I had 15 min to prep.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 (4 ounce) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, not too thick
  • 8 slices swiss cheese (or whatever you like but it should be 2 per breast)
  • 4 slices ham, I used Virginia, use whatever type makes you happy
  • 1 egg
  • 14 cup breadcrumbs, I use unseasoned
  • 12 teaspoon seasoning salt, I usually eyeball it
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted, optional (I think it will make the coating less dry)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with a silicon liner or whatever you like to use.
  2. Rinse and pat dry breasts. Layout breast, 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham, then roll from larger end towards pointy end and close with one toothpick. Set aside until all chicken is done up to this point.
  3. In a small dish or bowl, slightly beat an egg and set aside.
  4. In another small dish or bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, seasoned salt and butter.
  5. Dip rolled up chicken in egg, then breadcrumb mixture and place on baking sheet - repeat with rest of chicken.
  6. Lay one slice of cheese over each coated chicken breast.
  7. Bake approx 20 min, use a thermometer to measure internal temp to be safe.
