Instructions
  1. If you have time, do this the day before, or at least 4-6 hours prior to cooking. Pound the chicken thin between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Salt and pepper the chicken.
  2. Lay a thin slice of ham and swiss in the center of each chicken breast and starting at one end, roll tightly, tucking the sides as you go. Place each breast on a parchment lined baking sheet, with distance between so they’re not touching. Place another parchment paper over the top and freeze for 4-6 hours, or overnight.
  3. Prepare a breading station: shallow bowl of seasoned flour (salt, pepper and garlic powder). Egg wash with beaten eggs and a splash of water. Breadcrumbs or Panko breadcrumbs.
  4. Place chicken breast in flour, dust lightly and shake any excess loose. Continue to egg wash and finally to breadcrumbs. Place each chicken breast back on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Heat oil so that it is about 1″ deep in a large pan with deep sides. Warm it up over medium heat, you want it hot but not too hot so that it doesn’t get too dark. If you have a fryer, you can use that as well. After 1-2 minutes, flip over to golden brown on all sides. Remove from oil and lay on a paper towel lined plate. Serve immediately.
