10 stars! Delicious and easy and I loved that I didn't have to pound them out and roll them. I made a couple of changes-added salt and pepper to flour to season, and tied the breasts closed with string before breading. Will be making this again.

Very easy dish to prepare...I used panko instead of breadcrumbs and topped the chicken with some additional herbs...this is very tasty as written but I can see adding some other ingredients like Karen suggested...made for FYC tag game...

why have I tended to skirt around making dishes like this? So easy!!!! I would never have thought of oven-baking but definitely the way to go. Next time I might add parmesan to the breadcrumbs, or maybe mustard powder. Or maybe spread some Hot English Mustard over the ham before snadwiching. Just ideas, because this is excellent as is. I was very impressed with myself and so was my husband ha ha!!! Super meal thaat I will be making again, thanks for holding my hand while I jumped into new territory, Pat!!!
