  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 4 slices ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour all-purpose
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
  • ½ tsp salt or to taste
  • ½ tsp pepper or to taste
  • vegetable oil for frying
Creamy dijon sauce
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour all-purpose
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • ¼ tsp salt or to taste
  • Flatten chicken breasts: Lay a chicken breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound the chicken until it’s about 1/4″ thick. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Season each piece with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Roll: Lay a slice each of Swiss cheese and ham over one of the chicken breasts on a sheet of plastic wrap. You might need to use 2 pieces of each depending on how big your cheese and ham slices are. Roll the chicken width-wise and wrap it tightly in the plastic wrap by rolling, then tying the ends together. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts and allow them to chill in the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Dredge: Add the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs to 3 separate shallow bowls. Season the flour and eggs with salt and pepper. Unwrap the chicken breasts and dredge them first in the flour, then eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs.
  • Fry: Fill a deep skillet about 2″ high with the vegetable oil. Heat to 325F. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 5 minutes, flip, then cook for another 5 minutes or until the center reaches an internal temperature of 165F.* Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes.


  • Start the sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, whisk well, and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Finish and serve: Pour the milk slowly, while whisking, until fully incorporated and smooth. Add the dijon and parmesan cheese. Bring the sauce to a bubble, while continuously whisking, until it has thickened. Taste for salt and season as necessary. Serve the chicken with a scoop of sauce.
