Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish with butter.

Roll the boiled chicken breasts in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs. Sprinkle with salt and white pepper. Sauté in butter until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, mix cream cheese with butter, parsley and walnuts. Divide into 4 egg-shaped balls and roll in Swiss cheese to coat them.

Wrap each chicken breast around a cheese ball and secure with a toothpick. Place seam side down on the rice.
Bake for 15 to 30 minutes. During the last 3 minutes, top with remaining Swiss cheese. Serve hot.
