Delicious crowd pleaser that is open to many variations. This is my #1 "off-the-cuff" main dish.


4 chicken breasts
1 pint Milk
1 egg
2 cups Bread crumbs
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese
8 slices ham or prosciutto
8 slices Swiss cheese
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
2 big hanfuls baby spinach
1 cup mushrooms; diced
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp Salt and pepper and/or your favorite herbs

Original recipe makes 4



You need 3 bowls and a baking pan.

Coat the baking pan with olive oil.

Put the milk in a bowl and mix in the egg..

Chop up the onion, spinach and mushrooms. Mash up the garlic cloves and mix in with the vegetables in a another bowl.

Mix the Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and herbs together in a bowl.

Flatten the chicken breasts. Pound them lightly with a bottle or mallet. Best if you wrap them in plastic first.

Put them in a bowl of milk and let them soak a little while..

Dip the chicken breasts in the breadcrumbs.

Layer the ham and then the cheese over the breaded chicken breasts.

Take a handful of the vegetables and wrap the chicken breast around it. Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the baking pan.

Bake at 385 F. for 45 min.

Love this recipe and so does everyone I make it for. Take some time to prepare but oh so worth it. Kids will even eat spinach. ;)

I didn't use the ham. Used munster cheese instead of swiss. I also put extra veggies! It was delicious! Great recipe!

Very good! Looks and tastes sophisticated, but is so easy to make! Great for company.

The picture does not belong wth this recipe as it is very deceiving...there is not a sauce with this dish as it is written. The recipe itself is confusing, I wasn't sure if I should add the leftover milk in order to make a sauce or if the cheese was going to create this. Nice flavour but had to improvise a lot.

Very tasty! Prep was a snap! Overall good texture and flavor! Will do again.

I really liked this dish! I used Panko bread crumbs instead of regular bread crumbs and next time I think I will use a stronger flavored cheese instead of swiss, but otherwise delish!
