  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 6 tablespoons parmesan
  • 6 thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts each should be 1/4 inch thick (this was 2 pounds of chicken for me)
  • 6 slices swiss cheese
  • 6 slices ham
  • Honey mustard dressing for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an unlined baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder on a large shallow plate.
  • Whisk together egg and milk in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk together panko, parmesan, and 1/2 teaspoon salt on another large shallow plate. Set aside.
  • Bread chicken in flour, milk mixture, then panko.
  • Place 1 slice of cheese and 1 slice of ham onto each breaded chicken breast.
  • Roll up each breast, place seam size down onto prepared baking sheet, and secure with a toothpick.
  • Spray the top of each breast with cooking spray.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove toothpicks before serving with honey mustard dressing!
