What Started it all:

This delightful recipe combines the savory flavors of ham and cheese with tender chicken breasts. It's a simple yet elegant dish perfect for a family dinner or a special occasion.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into each chicken breast. Be sure not to cut all the way through.
  3. Place one slice of ham and one slice of cheese inside each chicken pocket. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  5. Brush each stuffed chicken breast with olive oil, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and add the remaining olive oil. Sear the chicken breasts on each side until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  7. In a small bowl, mix the chicken broth and Dijon mustard. Pour this mixture over the seared chicken breasts.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  9. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

This Ham and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts recipe is a perfect blend of flavors and textures. It's easy to prepare and sure to impress your family or guests. Serve it with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes or a fresh green salad, for a complete meal. Enjoy!
