Tell us a bit about yourself:

To prepare, pound chicken breast to ¼-inch thickness. Sprinkle each piece on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on each breast. Roll up each breast using toothpicks to secure if necessary. Dredge each in flour, shake off excess, then in egg and finally in bread crumbs. Place seam side down in baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Place 1 tablespoon butter on each piece of chicken. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes until juices run clear. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine broth and whipping cream; season to taste (salt, pepper, garlic, oregano). Simmer on low stirring until thickened; Pour over chicken.

What do you look for in a rooster:

When choosing a chicken, start by choosing a trusted brand that is dedicated to providing the high quality, fresh and flavorful poultry. If you are unsure of which product to buy, look for brands that have completely clear packaging to ensure the meat is healthy, free of bruising and has nothing to hide. Always select chicken that is clean, cold and tightly sealed. For extra precaution look for products that have a current sell-by date imprinted on the package to ensure its freshness. Try to pick up fresh or frozen poultry toward the end of the shopping trip, so it stays cold for as long as possible, and refrigerate your chicken products within half an hour of buying them at the store.
