Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
4 chicken breasts
4 tsp Dijon or wholegrain mustard
4 slices ham
Salt and pepper, to season
4 slices cheese, 1 cm thick (lactose free if required)
1/4 cup grated cheese (Parmesan or lactose free cheese if required)
1 cup flour (gluten free if required)
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs (gluten free if required)
1 egg, beaten
4 potatoes
1/2 cos or iceberg lettuce
1 tomato
1 red capsicum
10 cm cucumber
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juiced and zested
2 tbsp vinegar

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Line a baking dish with baking paper.
  • In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, grated cheese and season with salt and pepper. Place the flour and egg in separate bowls.
  • Cut a pocket into the thick side of the chicken breast. Add 1 tsp mustard, a slice of ham and then a slice of cheese inside the pocket.
  • [Image3 Insert the ham and cheese carefully so the chicken does not tear]
  • Roll the chicken in the flour so it is evenly coated, holding the slit together as you roll.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg and then roll in the bread crumb and cheese mixture.
  • Secure the opening with kebab sticks or toothpicks.

  • Place the chicken on a baking tray. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until the surface is browned.
  • In the meantime, while the chicken is cooking, cut the lettuce, cucumber, capsicum, tomato and place in a bowl.
  • In a small bowl add the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, zest and whisk until mixed. Pour onto the salad and toss to combine. Set aside.
  • Cut the potato into bite sized pieces, place in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes until cooked. Strain and set aside.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven. Serve with the salad and steamed potatoes.
