Chicken & Ham Rolls Suisse~Robynne

Robynne Glenn


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.

chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
6 slice
baked ham
1 Tbsp
prepared mustard
2 Tbsp
1/4 c
grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
white pepper
1/2 c
dry bread crumbs
6 Tbsp
butter, melted


2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
white pepper
1 Tbsp
prepared mustard
1 1/2 c
1/2 c
dry white wine
1 1/2 c
swiss cheese, shredded


1Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line 12 X 8 X 2 inch baking dish with foil (I believe I used parchment paper).
2Wash 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.
3Place a slice of ham on each piece of chicken; roll up from short end; secure with a toothpick.
4Combine 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.
5Dip 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.
6Bake uncovered, 45 minutes, or until richly browned and fork-tender.
7Meanwhile, 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.
8Pour 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.
