  • 2 Teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

  • salt and pepper

  • 2 eggs

Steps

  • 1

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • 2

    Butterfly each chicken breast and place between two pieces of plastic wrap.

    Ingredients

    • 4 (4-5 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 3

    Evenly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet, being careful not to tear the chicken until chicken is 1/4-inch thick.
  • 4

    Lay each chicken breast on a fresh piece of plastic wrap.
  • 5

    Season chicken with salt and lay 1 to 2 slices of cheese on each breast followed by prosciutto or ham, then 1 to 2 more cheese slices.

    Ingredients

    • As Needed salt

    • 8 Slices Swiss cheese

    • 8 Slices prosciutto or ham

    Roll the chicken breast up like you would roll a burrito. Using the bottom piece of plastic wrap as an aid, fold the bottom of the breast up about an inch, then fold in the sides. Roll tightly.
  • 7

    Wrap in the plastic wrap and tightly twist the ends to shape and compress the chicken. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
  • 8

    Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
