Warm chicken wrapped around melted cheese and juicy ham that won't break the calorie bank!

Number of Servings: 1


    One 5 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet
    1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese, room temperature
    1 oz. (about 3 slices) 97-98% fat-free ham slices
    salt & pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put chicken in a large sealable plastic bag, squeeze out as much air as you can, and seal. Using a meat tenderizer or a can, carefully pound chicken through the bag until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Remove chicken from bag, and season to taste with salt and pepper on both sides.

Lay the chicken flat and spread the cheese wedge over it. Evenly layer the ham slices on top of the cheese. Starting with one of the longer sides (or any side if it is square), tightly roll up the chicken breast cutlet, and secure with toothpicks.

Place chicken roll in a baking dish lined with foil, and/or sprayed with nonstick spray, and then cover the baking dish with foil.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove the foil covering the dish. Continue to bake (uncovered) for an additional 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!
