Here is a yummy comfort food that is easy to prepare and extremely delicious. You can fry it if you wish, but it is healthier to bake it. I also put some butter slices in the rolls because it makes the chicken tastier. You can also make white sauce or mushroom sauce for it if desired.
4 chicken breast fillet
Salt and pepper to taste
8 thin slices of ham
16 thin slices Gruyere or Swiss cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons water
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Place the chicken fillets in between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. With a mallet, pound on the meat until its thickness is reduced to 1/4 of its original. Do not pound too hard because we do not want to destroy the fillets and have some holes in it.
Place 2 slices of ham and 2 slices of cheese on each fillet and roll them up. Squeeze it gently to seal the rolls or place a toothpick to seal it if needed. Repeat the process for all the fillets.
In a small bowl, combine the oil, parsley and bread crumbs. Season it with salt and pepper.
Beat the eggs and water in a separate bowl.
Place the flour on a plate and season it with salt and pepper.
Dust the chicken roll with the flour mixture, after dip it in the egg and then coat it with bread crumbs. Repeat this for the remaining roulades. Once they are coated in bread crumbs, place them on a greased baking dish or baking pan. Bake it for 20-25 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes. Slice the rolls in half or in pinwheels before serving. Serve warm with vegetables, potatoes or rice.
