Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F. Butterfly chicken breasts, stuff with cheese and ham.

Step 2

Roll up burrito style, ensuring that chicken covers all ham and cheese. Cover tightly in plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes to set.

Step 3

Take out of the fridge, remove the plastic wrap and dredge in flour. Dip chicken into beaten egg, then roll in bread crumbs. Reroll in plastic wrap and put back in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the plastic wrap. Pan fry in oil until both sides are golden brown. Place in oven for 10 minutes.

You may use toothpicks to secure the chicken breasts so they don't fall apart.
