Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 2. Using a meat mallet, flatten the chicken breasts till they are 1/4" thick. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper on each side. 3. Place slice of ham on laid out chicken, then top with slice of Swiss cheese. 4. Tightly roll the chicken breast and then secure with a toothpick. Trim off any dangling pieces of chicken if desired. 5. Combine melted butter, thyme, breadcrumbs and Parmesan and mix to combine. Add salt till it tastes sufficiently salted. Beat eggs in separate dish. 6. Working in batches, lightly dust the exterior of the rolled chicken with flour, being careful not to flour the interior rolled portion. 7. Dip chicken into beaten eggs and let excess egg drip off. 8. Roll the chicken into the breadcrumb mixture till it is evenly coated and place on greased baking sheet. 9. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until interior reaches 165 degrees. 10. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes and serve. Sauce 1. Combine all ingredients and heat in microwave for 2 minutes, or until hot. 2. Serve along side chicken. Recipe Notes Cooking time will vary depending on the meat's thickness and size of the chicken breast. I recommend covering the chicken in plastic wrap when pounding with the meat mallet. This will prevent splattering.   Pasta Salad 1 box (1 lb) rotini pasta 1 bag of shredded carrots 1 pint container of cherry tomatoes, halved.
