This is one of those comfort foods that the boys, in particular, really love. There are many ways to make it, be we prefer traditional baking, with no extra frying or butter in between.
4 boneless Chicken Breasts
Salt and Pepper
sliced Swiss Cheese
1 cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tb. paprika
Egg Wash-- (beat 1 egg + 1 Tbs. water)
1 can cream of chicken soup,
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tbs. lemon juice
Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
Dip chicken breasts in egg wash.
Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast. Roll and secure with a toothpick.
Place breadcrumbs and paprika and shallow bowl. Roll each chicken breast in breadcrumb mixture.
Place in greased baking dish. Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
Remove from oven and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to oven until cheese has melted (3-5 min.)
Add a spoonful of sauce to the top of each chicken breast. Enjoy!
- Don't use sandwich meat ham.
- Some people like to add a small pat of butter to the top of each breast before baking. (Not really sure why you'd want those extra calories as it tastes just fine without).
- Sometimes it's easier to cut the chicken breast in half, rather than pounding it with a rolling pin. Just be careful not to cut the breast all the way through. Then place the ham and cheese in the middle of the breast.
- Provolone cheese is a yummy substitution for those who don't like Swiss.
