Prepare the chicken

  3. Lay pounded chicken breasts out on a flat, clean surface. Top each with a slice of ham and then a slice of swiss cheese.
  4. Roll into a bundle starting with one of the longer sides and rolling toward the opposite side. Secure with toothpicks. Dip chicken bundles in the egg mixture, coating all sides, then carefully roll in breadcrumbs to coat.

  6. Transfer skillet to preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

Prepare the sauce

  1. While chicken is cooking begin preparing the sauce by melting butter in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Stir in flour until mixture clumps together. Gradually whisk in milk, working out the lumps as you stir. Stir in dijon mustard, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. When chicken bundles are fully cooked, cut into 1-inch sections, drizzle with the sauce and serve immediately.
