Today, I’m linking up with Six Sisters’ Stuff, Mom’s Bookshelf and Beauty Brite

I’m not the only one that makes random fancy meals for my kids, am I? I mean, I make random fancy meals to enjoy with my husband after the kids are in bed, but I suspect that’s less weird than cracking open the new issue of Food & Drink Magazine for inspiration for my kids’ dinner. I know at least one other mommy who perfects fancy food on her little one before serving it to her husband. Oh Sammie, how I adore you so.

This is yet another one of those recipes that only appear like a lot of work but look really impressive. The only concern with this dish is the cheese leaking out of the chicken. As long as you secure the chicken breast closed with a few toothpicks and bake it seam side down, it’s not going to leak.

As with a lot of recipes that only have a few ingredients, you really have to use the best quality you can find – for each of them. In my case, the mozzarella at my local grocery was better than the swiss. If the swiss had looked better I would have gone with that – some people would prefer the swiss over mozzarella either way! You could also go with prosciutto instead of ham. The Wee Ones are not big on prosciutto or I would have used that.

Butterfly the chicken breasts and pound them out nice and flat between two pieces of plastic wrap. Slice the cheese into strips and place them in the middle of the breast.

Layer the ham over the cheese and fold the chicken over so it’s almost a roll. You will probably have to use toothpicks to secure the chicken shut. Now beat the egg in a shallow bowl and coat the chicken with it.

Mix the breadcrumbs and parsley and toss the chicken breasts in it. Bake for about 25 minutes at 350F – with the seam side down on your parchment paper lined baking sheet.
