Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Ingredients

4 pieces chicken breast, boneless and skinless
4 pieces ham
4 slices cheddar cheese, (and I sliced it into sticks)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground peppercorn
1/2 cup bread crumbs- add 1/8 tsp paprika and 1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1 large egg, beaten
8 smalls butter, cubed into pieces (optional)

Preparation

1
Pre-heat oven into 180°C.
2
Gently pound the chicken breast into 1/4 thickness using a meat mallet.
3
Season the chicken meat - sprinkle salt and ground pepper on both sides.
4
Place 1 ham and 2 cheese sticks on top of each breast (but I prefer putting on another 2 cheese sticks! i love cheese!) Roll up each breast an secure with a toothpick.
5
Dredge in flour. Then brush with beaten eggs. Then finally roll in bread crumbs mixture.
6
Brush the baking pan with olive oil, then place the chicken rolls.
7
Bake for about 20 minutes. Then layer each rolls with butter cubes. Let the butter melts on its top, the roll will absorb its flavor and will give a really nice smell.
8
Bake for another 15 minutes.
9
You may serve this your favorite sauce.
