Minority opinion: my husband and I both found this to be a little below average, especially when compared with other recipes on this site. Our main complaint was that the chicken was bland and the sauce, while okay, was not as good as other similar sauces. In fairness, we did follow the suggestions of other reviewers as follows: 1. we pounded the breasts to less than 1/2 inch. 2. we wrapped the cheese inside 2 slices of ham such that the cheese did not leak out. 3. we purposely did not use a salty ham so that was not an issue. 4. we spread a very thin layer of Dijon inside the breast. 5. we did flour, then egg wash, then panko which we think did improve the coating. 6. we browned then finished baking in the oven so the chicken was tender. 7. we added a fair amount of sauce to the taste as it was so bland as well as a pinch of garlic 8. we doubled the sauce as we like sauce and also planned to use some of the sauce on fresh roasted asparagus. So, while not following the original recipe exactly, we feel we gave it as fair a shot as we could for our tastes. Perhaps we've become a little spoiled by other recipes on this site or perhaps our expectations were too high. Still, we were quite disappointed. We won't be making this again.
