Chicken Roulades

A Gentleman Farmer Favorite!
~*~
Here is what you will need ~
*
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
Thin ham slices
Swiss cheese
Seasoned Bread Crumbs (I like the Italian or Herb and Garlic)
1 egg, beaten with a splash of milk
Salt, pepper and garlic powder
Butter/Olive oil
*
Stack about 4 narrow slices of cheese in the center of
2 thin slices of ham. Roll ham around cheese.
Center on chicken breast.
Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Roll chicken breast around ham/cheese and
secure with toothpicks and/or heavy thread.
(Try to completely encase so cheese doesn't leek out when melted.
This is easier said than done!)
Dip chicken bundles in egg and then in bread crumbs.

Brown in heavy bottom pan in melted butter,
turning to brown evenly on all sides.
I needed to add additional Olive oil to the pan.
When browned, put on a lid and let cook for about 20min
or until chicken is no longer pink.)
I served it with a simple rice pilaf and steamed fresh asparagus!

MMmm!
It was sooo good! ;~P

Oh this is a delicious recipe :)

I have made this dish with prosciutto and mozzarella cheese.

Anyway you make it ~ it comes out delicious. But we can not forget the rice pilaf and the asparagus. Did you steam them?

Thank you for sharing,

Maria
