Southern Living JULY 2002

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
  • 1 (5.5-ounce) box seasoned croutons, crushed
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 12 thinly sliced smoked ham slices
  • 6 Swiss cheese slices
  • Honey mustard dressing (optional)

Preparation

Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken; set aside.

Combine seasoned crouton crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a large zip-top plastic bag. Whisk together egg whites and 2 tablespoons water in a shallow bowl.

Dip chicken in egg white mixture, and drain. Place 1 breast half in bag; seal and shake to coat. Remove to a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined baking sheet, and repeat with remaining chicken.

Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until chicken is done. Top each breast half with 2 ham slices and 1 Swiss cheese slice. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with honey mustard dressing, if desired.

Prep: 20 min., Bake: 25 min.
