Ingredients

  • 6 slices (1-oz. each) deli ham
  • 1/2 cup (2-ounce) shredded Swiss cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 6-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

Between 2 pieces of wax paper, gently pound the chicken with a mallet or rolling pin to 1/4-inch thickness. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then place a slice of ham on top of chicken breast. Evenly sprinkle with cheese and roll up tightly, tucking in the sides as you roll.
