Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C.

Step 2

Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap, and flatten with a meat mallet and then top each with a slice of ham and a 1/4 cup of gruyere and then roll up, enclosing filling, and secure with toothpicks, if desired.

Step 4

Whisk eggs and mustard in a shallow bowl and place flour and breadcrumbs into separate bowls.

Step 5

Lightly coat rolls in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and place on a plate.

Step 6

Place wedges onto a baking tray and spray with oil and sprinkle with chicken salt (I would use regular hate chicken salt) and bake for 40 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and cook chicken rolls for 5 minutes or until golden on all sides and then transfer to a tray and sprinkle with remaining gruyere and bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
