Directions

Trim the Chicken breasts to medallions by cutting approximately 1/3 of the chicken breast off of the pointed side of the breast. Cut a slit in the side of the chicken breast. Take the ham and cut in half. In a bowl mix the cheese and honey mustard. Make a "sandwich" with 2 pieces of ham and half of each of the cheese mixture. Stuff these sandwiches in the slit in the chicken breast. Use a toothpick to keep the chicken breast shut. If you have a difficult time with the "sandwich" ham you can chop up the ham and mix it with the cheese and stuff this mix in the chicken. In a separate bowl mix the bread crumbs and flour, season with salt and pepper to taste. In another bowl slightly whisk the egg. Dredge the chicken breasts in egg first then in bread crumbs. Place the breasts on a baking sheet. Bake for 35 - 45 minutes @ 350 deg. With a meat thermometer ensure the chicken breast reaches 165 deg. While these are cooking place the trimmed pieces of chicken breast in a frying pan season with salt and pepper while cooking. When this is half cooked add the milk to the pan. Cook until the chicken is done and remove the chicken from the milk. I usually add some chicken flavor "better than bullion" to my gravy. Add the remaining flour and thicken over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. Add more flour to thicken as needed. When the chicken is done serve the gravy over the chicken and garnish with fresh chives. Enjoy:)
