Chicken & Ham Rolls Suisse~Robynne

I used to make this for my kid's aunt on her birthday each year. We have a family tradition where I make my family members their favorite meal on their birthday. Although she has moved away, I think of her each time I make this dish with fond memories.

Happy Birthday, Amber!

Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way.

How to Make Chicken & Ham Rolls Suisse~Robynne


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line 12 X 8 X 2 inch baking dish with foil (I believe I used parchment paper).
  2. Wash chicken breast; pat dry with paper towels. To flatten chicken, place each breast, smooth side down, on sheet of waxed paper; cover with second sheet. Using a mallet, pound chicken to about 1/4" thickness.
  3. Place a slice of ham on each piece of chicken; roll up from short end; secure with a toothpick.
  4. Combine egg, 1 tablespoon mustard and 2 tablespoons of water; mix well. On a sheet of waxed paper, mix together Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper and the bread crumbs.
  5. Dip chicken rolls in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture, coating evenly. Arrange in single layer in bottom of foil lined pan; spoon 1 tablespoon melted butter over each roll.
  6. Bake uncovered, 45 minutes, or until richly browned and fork-tender.
  7. Meanwhile, make Sauce: In small heavy saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Remove from heat; stir in flour, salt , pepper and mustard. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly. Return to heat. Bring to boiling, stirring. Add wine and all but 1/4 cup of Swiss cheese; simmer, stirring, 1 minute.
  8. Pour 3/4 of sauce into bottom of baking dish. Place chicken rolls on top. Pour rest of sauce over chicken rolls. Sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese. Place under broiler 2 minute or until cheese begins to brown.
