Directions:
Bone and skin chicken breasts. Slice meat horizontally to make 8 thin slices (4 to a breast). Pound the slices lightly between sheets of wax paper. Trim to even shape. Dip the slices in flour, then in the egg beaten with a few drops of water, and then in the bread crumbs. Heat olive oil and butter. When hot but not brown, add chicken slices; cook 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Butter a shallow baking dish, arrange 8 slices of ham in one layer, and on these place a slice of cheese, then chicken, and then another slice of ham and cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.

Makes 4 servings.
