Chicken Peek-a-Boos

Delicious chicken breasts, filled with cheeses and wrapped in lean ham.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C).
  2. Combine cheeses, basil, and mustard in bowl. Mix until blended, then salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cut chicken breasts in half (like you would cut a loaf of bread). Using a meat mallet, tenderize and flatten chicken.
  4. Place 2 slices ham on chicken, cover completely. Spread 1/4 of the cheese mixture on ham. Roll up chicken and ham. Use toothpicks to secure the chicken roll.
  5. In a frying pan (preferably oven safe) drizzle olive oil. Turn heat to medium. Brown chicken rolls.
  6. Pop pan in to oven for 18-25 minutes or until center of chicken has reached 180° F (80° C).
  7. Let cool for 3-5 minutes so juices can be absorbed then enjoy.
  8. Note: If you are like me and eat with your eyes first, you may sprinkle a bit or parmesan cheese and basil over the chicken before eating. Also for a variation you could add spinach or your favorite kinds of cheeses... make this recipe your own!

did not hold together well, maybe I did something wrong, but no one really liked it...

Pretty good, next time going to use a different cheese in the middle.
Loved it!! Used the Splenda brown sugar vs brown sugar and sliced jalapeños on top. Even my "I can tell its a diet recipie" boyfriend loved it! It's definitely made its way into this household for a repeat or two or three ;)
