boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2
(1-oz.) slices 97% fat-free ham, cut in half
1/4

1
oz. (1/4 cup) shredded Swiss cheese
1
egg white
1/2
cup Progresso™ Italian Style Bread Crumbs
Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2 Place 1 chicken breast half, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast halves.
