This is one meal that I really don't eat that often but when I do, I realize why I like it so much. It's so full of flavor and tastes so yummy.
I think I also like it because the chicken is pounded thin and I'm not normally a big fan of thick chicken...ick. It's then layered with swiss cheese and ham, rolled, and sauteed until golden brown.
Here's what you need:
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 4 slices of ham
- 4 slices of swiss cheese
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
Place a chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Use the flat side of a mallet and pound thin to about 1/8" thick. Remove chicken and repeat with other pieces.
This is about how thin you want the chicken to be.
Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken. Salt and pepper if you want, but you don't need too much salt as the ham already offers that. I forgot and added anyway....
Fold in the bottom and sides; roll up and secure with a toothpick.
They will look like this.
Heat oil in skillet and cook rolls for 20-25 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
I found that near the top by the toothpicks, the chicken wasn't cooking through so I had to hold down in skillet on that part.
Remove when golden brown.
You don't have to, but I laid mine on a paper towel to soak up some of the oil. I don't like my things too greasy.
The end result. Yum!
