Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly oil a baking dish or line with baking parchment.
Pound chicken breasts to 6mm thickness.
Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast. Roll up each breast, and secure with a wooden skewer. Place in baking dish, and sprinkle chicken evenly with breadcrumbs.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from oven, and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Remove skewers, and serve immediately.
Added paprika to the breadcrumbs which gave it a slightly different slant. Part fried it so the breadcrumbs were golden and then put it in the oven for 20 mins whilst I fryed courgetts in butter with chopped fresh chilli and garlic and served with freshly boiled rice...very tasty! - 14 Jul 2010
