Chicken Cordon Something

Chicken Cordon Something

What you need:

1 stick butter, melted 
1 cup dry breadcrumbs 
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 
4 deli slices of ham
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
4 slices Swiss cheese 

1 can diced tomatoes (can be rotel or seasoned)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave at high in 30 second intervals until melted. Set aside.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound each to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt, pepper, and any seasoning of choice. Top each breast half with 1 slice of ham and 1 slice of Swiss Cheese. Next place about 2-3 tablespoons of diced tomatoes on each of the four chicken breasts. (on top of the Swiss cheese). Roll up each breast half jelly-roll fashion. Dip each roll in melted butter; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place rolls, seam side down, in an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until juices run clear and tops are golden.
