Chicken Peek-a-Boos

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



  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 ;)

Such a wonderful flavor combination of citrus and herbs.
The simple topping of delightfully tangy red cherry tomatoes makes this meal perfect.
With chicken and veggies you have an all in one meal that comes together in a flash.
A different spin on enchiladas.
