Serving Change
  • 1
    onion, sliced into rings
  • 200
    fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • oil
  • 4
    slices ham
  • 4
    thick slices Cheddar cheese
  • 8
    chicken breast fillets, flattened with the palm of your hand
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2
    eggs, beaten
  • cake flour for rolling
  • white breadcrumbs for rolling
  • oil for frying


Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.

Spray a baking tray with non-stick spray.

Sauté the onion and mushroom in a little oil until the onion is soft. Remove from the pan and cool.

Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese in four of the chicken breast fillets. Spoon a quarter of the mushroom mixture into each breast. Season well with salt and pepper.

Secure each parcel with a piece of string. Season on the outside with salt and pepper to taste.

Dip each chicken breast package in the egg, then in cake flour and then in egg again. Roll in the breadcrumbs and refrigerate for a few minutes.

Heat enough oil for shallow-frying in a pan and fry the chicken breast packages until golden brown on the outside. If still not done, place on the baking tray, cover with aluminium foil and bake for 10-15 minutes in the oven until done. Serve with vegetables.
