  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter

1. Place one chicken breast at time on pieces of plastic wrap. Flatten each to 1/8 inch thick using the flat side of a meat mallet or rolling pin.
2. Divide ham among flattened breasts. Cut cheese in 8 sticks about 1 1/2 inches long; place on ham. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper. Roll ham around cheese, then roll up chicken breast with ham inside, tucking in ends and sealing well. Fasten edges with toothpicks if you necessary.
3. Melt butter, dips each chicken breast in butter, turning to coat evenly; roll in crumbs. Place seam-side down in baking dish; sprinkle with any remaining crumbs. Cover with paper towel until ready to bake. Bake for 40 minutes @ 350.
