This entree is easy and delicious, and made healthier by using Jarlsberg cheese (instead of Swiss) and whole wheat bread crumbs.
Original recipe makes 4 servings
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 slices Jarlsberg cheese
4 slices cooked ham
1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

- Pound chicken breasts to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place one cheese slice and one ham slice on top of each breast. Roll up each breast and secure with a toothpick. lace in baking dish and sprinkle chicken evenly with bread crumbs.
- Bake in preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink in center and juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from oven and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks and serve immediately.
