An elegant choice for a dinner party or family gathering-chicken with ham and Swiss cheese in a cream sauce.

  • Servings: 6


6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded to ½" thickness
6 slices Swiss Cheese
6 slices Ham
3 Tbsp Flour
1 tsp Paprika
¼ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
6 Tbsp Butter
½ cup White Wine or Broth
1 tsp Chicken Broth Granules
1 Tbsp Cornstarch
1 cup Heavy Cream
4 cups Hot, cooked linguini


Place a ham and a cheese slice on each chicken breast.

Roll up tightly, tucking in sides to completely enclose ham and cheese. Secure with toothpicks.

Mix flour and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl and coat the chicken pieces with the mixture.

In a large skillet heat the butter over medium-high heat and brown the chicken rolls on all sides.

Add wine and broth granules, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes, until chicken is done in center.

Remove chicken and keep warm on a serving platter.

Blend cornstarch with the cream and stir into the skillet, stirring constantly and cooking until thickened.

Serve sauce over chicken and linguini.
