Old favorite

My mom got this recipe from a bacon package when we were kids and we always liked it. We discovered a delicious applewood smoked ham from the deli at Graul’s. I”m not usually a big ham fan but this is so good. Fabulous on breakfast sandwiches. It got me reminiscing about this recipe.

Chicken with ham and cheese and bacon

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast per person
  • 1 slice deli ham per serving
  • 1 slice swiss cheese per serving
  • 2 slices bacon per serving
  • 1/4 cup white wine (optional)

Preheat oven to 375.  Place chicken breasts between two slices of wax paper and pound with a meat pounder or rolling pin until flattened.  Place a slice of ham and a slice of swiss cheese on each flattened breast.  Roll each chicken breast around the ham and cheese.  Place two slices of bacon per serving on a cutting board and place a chicken breast on top.  Roll bacon around chicken and place each bacon wrapped chicken breast in a ceramic baking dish.  Bake about 1 hour, turning chicken halfway through.  About 5 minutes before serving, remove and pour off bacon fat.  Pour white wine over chicken and return to oven for 5 more minutes. 

Serve with steamed broccoli to lessen the guilt!
