Gently use a meat mallet to pound the chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap, add thinly sliced prosciutto ham, and sprinkle the meats with gruyere cheese. Tuck in the sides of the chicken breast, and roll it up tightly, like a jellyroll. Repeat this procedure with the remaining pieces of chicken.
Next, set out three separate bowls. In one bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of flour with salt and pepper. In the next bowl, beat two eggs together. In the last bowl, mix 1 cup of Panko bread crumbs, 4 sprigs of fresh thyme, 1 clove of garlic and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Dust each piece of chicken with the flour mixture, dip the chicken into the egg mixture, and lightly coat it with the breadcrumb mixture. Place the pieces of chicken onto a baking sheet that is lightly coated with olive oil. Bake the chicken for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Slice before serving.
Alternatively, use Swiss cheese and deli ham in place of the gruyere and proscuitto.Learn more about Meat
