  • Summary

    Note: fresh bread crumbs here make all the difference. I save the heels of my bread stashed in the freezer for just a recipe like this when I need to grind up fresh bread crumbs quickly in my blender or food processor. Also, try to find really thick chicken breasts – it makes it easier to cut them in half lengthwise and still have a good-sized portion.

    Ingredients

    • 3 large chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half length-wise (to form two thinner chicken breast cutlets)
    • 12 slices deli ham
    • 1 cup bread crumbs
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 1/3 to 1/2 pound thinly sliced swiss cheese
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules (or 1 bouillon cube, crushed)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
