Ronnie's Oven-Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

This really barely qualifies as a recipe but it is more an easy method of making this dish. My family loves this for dinner. I made this today for Betty Jane and Blair as she recovers from knee-replacement surgery. Hope you try this one. It is easy.

6 chicken breasts beaten thin like a cutlet (use a mallet or base of a heavy pan)
6 slices swiss cheese
6 slices of ham
2 eggs beaten with a tablespoon of water
1 cup (or more) of italian seasoned bread crumbs
6 toothpicks

Prepare your stations for breading. Lay out a chicken breast and place one slice of ham and one slice of cheese. Begin at largest end and roll the breast, ham and cheese. Secure with a toothpick. Dip each rolled breast in egg and then bread crumbs. Place the six breasts in a greased casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 - 35 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove foil and cook the last 5-10 minutes to get a crispy crust on chicken. Serve with baked potatoes and a vegetable for an excellent meal. Be sure to warn your guests of the toothpick or remove before serving.
