Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lay the chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, gently pound the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove the top sheet of plastic and lay 1 slice of prosciutto neatly over the top to cover the breast and sprinkle a quarter of the cheese over the prosciutto. Tuck in the sides of the breast and roll up tight like a jellyroll inside the plastic wrap. Squeeze the log gently to seal and twist both ends tight to form a nice log. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Season the flour with salt and pepper. Mix the bread crumbs with thyme, garlic and kosher salt, pepper, and melted butter. The butter will help the crust brown. Beat together the eggs and season so the flour, the eggs and the crumbs are all seasoned.

Remove the plastic wrap. Lightly dust the chicken with flour, dip in the egg mixture and gently coat in the bread crumbs. Lightly coat a baking pan with olive oil and carefully transfer the roulades onto it. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until browned and cooked through.

Cut into pinwheels and serve on top of Brussels Sprout Hash with Chicken Jus and Cranberry Chutney, if desired.

Very good.   The Gruyere and prosciutto really make it stand out from regular cordon bleu.  I did bake mine for around 45 mins and the last 5 I bumped it up to 375 degrees to get more of a brown top.  Other than that, spot on to the recipe.  Will make again (and again and again).  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious and although a bit time consuming, easy to make. On cooking time, I baked for about 37 minutes and it still wasn't getting brown, so I turned it to broil for the last two minutes and got some browning, but not all over. It was great and I think tasted "browned" but wish it had gotten more evenly colored. Meat was perfectly cooked. May try 30-35 at 400 degrees next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OUT OF THIS WORLD! And kids went nuts for it (5yr old and 19mth old) -- I made it with Rachel Ray's Lemon Spaghetti --- huge hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved making this! It was so easy and turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy to make. Unfortunately a lot of the ingredients were missing since I just used most of them up. No thyme. I don't eat ham and I also finished the chicken ham slice so I skipped this ham slice. No Gruyere either so I used a mix of cheddar+mozzarella. Still, I like the end product. Edible and delicious! The seasoning makes all the difference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm trying to make this but one part of the instructions isn't clear, "Beat together the eggs and season so the flour, the eggs and the crumbs are all seasoned." What am I supposed to mix in the Eggs? Its not the flour mixture because later it says, "Lightly dust the chicken with flour, dip in the egg mixture and gently coat in the bread crumbs." I'll change star rating when I figure this out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Decided to make something different for the family, I think the only thing I would have done differently was double the prosciutto and maybe use some sort of aioli sauce to compliment it if not served with a pasta(I like heavier spices and flavors). Cooking time was spot on for me though. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I am making this for my wedding reception, so I test drove a couple different hams and cheeses. I ended up choosing Polish ham and baby swiss and it was fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! Used thin slices of good quality, smoky ham instead of prosciutto, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was so easy to make, and the final product is moist, flavorful and delicious. This one's a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Means ...season the eggs w/ salt pepper, and other seasoning (if you wish) like the flour is seasoned and the breadcrumbs are seasoned. item not reviewed by moderator and published
