How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.

  2. Combine breadcrumbs and caraway seeds in a shallow dish. Set aside.

  3. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket; place ham and cheese evenly into pockets.

  4. Spread 1 teaspoon of mustard over each chicken breast, coating both sides. Dredge each breast in breadcrumb mixture, pressing firmly to coat. Coat lightly with cooking spray.

  5. Place chicken in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 22 to 25 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve immediately.
