Cook Time: approx 25 mins.


  • 8 boneless chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) cooked ham, cut in half
  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil

Mushroom Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup heated milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • salt
  • white pepper


Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper or in food storage bag. Pound gently to flatten, using a rolling pin or smooth side of meat mallet. Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Combine eggs with 1 cup milk; dip chicken pieces in mixture. Place a piece of ham and a piece of cheese in the center of each flattened piece of chicken. Brush top of cheese slices with the milk and egg mixture. Fold ends over the ham and cheese; roll up, beginning with long side. Secure rolls with toothpicks. Dredge chicken in the 1/3 cup flour then dip in remaining milk mixture; roll in bread crumbs to coat well. Place chicken rolls on a plate; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat 1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Fry chicken rolls for 20 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown. Drain well. Serve with mushroom sauce. Serves 8.

Mushroom Sauce:

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; sauté mushrooms until browned. Add flour and stir until mixture is well blended. Gradually stir in hot milk and chicken broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to boil and thickens. Simmer, stirring frequently, over very low heat for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Makes about 1 cup of medium thick sauce.

  1. Hello, I really like the entrysof your blog! That is why I want to ask you whether you are interested in a link exchange? That’s how it works: We both place a link to the website each other (With wordpress you can use the blogroll or the text widget). And that’s the result of a link exchange: We get visitors from the other website. Besides our websites ranks better on search engines, which means more visitors too. And who is not interested in even more visitors? 😉 I already placed your link on the sidebar of my website which has about 80 visitors / day. If you’re interested, place a link to my homepage. Else if you aren’t interested I will delete the link on my page after 5 days. Thank you and please write soon more such blog entries. Greetings!!
