Ingredients:  
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 slices Swiss or Provolone cheese

1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

Directions:
Directions:
Pound chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness, or fillet them into broad thin halves. Sprinkle each piece on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on each breast. Roll up each breast using toothpicks to secure if necessary. Dredge each in flour, shake off excess, then in egg and finally in bread crumbs. Place seam side down in baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Place 1 tablespoon butter on each piece of chicken. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes until juices run clear. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine broth and whipping cream; season to taste (salt, pepper, garlic, oregano). Simmer on low stirring until thickened; Pour over chicken. Note - I like to add different herbs and seasonings, even Parmesan cheese into my bread crumbs, this adds a variety of flavor, and hint of color, but don't over do it, the flavor is already great.
