It's nice to surprise the family with special meals like this during the week. I usually double the recipe so we can enjoy leftovers the next day. —Martha Stine, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 6 slices thinly sliced deli ham
  • 6 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, halved
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/8-in. thickness; sprinkle with sage. Place ham, mozzarella cheese and tomato down the center of each; roll up chicken from a long side, tucking in ends. Secure with toothpicks.
  2. In a shallow bowl, toss bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and parsley. In a shallow microwave-safe dish, microwave 3 tablespoons butter until melted. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumb mixture. Place in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish, seam side down. Melt remaining butter; drizzle over top.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, 40-45 minutes. Discard toothpicks before serving.
