Oxmoor House JANUARY 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half)


  • 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced low-fat deli ham
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced Swiss cheese
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425°.

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

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

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.

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.
