Ingredients:

6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
8 Thin Slices Deli Ham
2 Cups Shredded Swiss Cheese
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
3 Large Eggs
1 Cup All-Purpose Flour

 

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Put the Ritz crackers and bread in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground.  Drizzle in the butter and pulse a few times to combine.  Scatter the bread crumbs on a baking sheet and bake on the middle shelf in the oven until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.  Place toasted bread crumbs in a shallow dish and set aside.

Roll 1/4 cup cheese in each slice of ham.

Cut a pocket in each chicken breast and stuff with 2 ham rolls.

Beat the eggs in a shallow dish.  Place the flour in another shallow dish. 

Dip the stuffed chicken breasts in the flour, then eggs, then coat with the bread crumbs.  Place on a baking sheet.

Bake on the bottom rack in the oven until the bottoms are browned, about 10 minutes.  Move to the middle rack and reduce temperature to 400°F.  Bake until browned and have an internal temperature of 160°F, 20-25 minutes.

Tent with foil for 5 minutes before serving.
