Chicken A La Impress Me

Chicken A La Impress Me

"Firstly, this name came from the fact that it is easy to modify from a weekly recipe to a weekend recipe and because I give a name to everything I create and that my family likes. If they didn't like it, it would have been chicken A La Please-Mom-Never-Again!!!! Serve with a bechamel sauce. For the weekend version, replace the vegetables with baby shrimp and long strips of green onion, brown, and wrap in puff pastry."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken breasts between two sheets of wax paper or plastic wrapping, and pound with a meat mallet to flatten.
  3. Cover each flattened breast with a slice or two of ham. Place 2 tablespoons cheese and a bit of carrot and a zucchini on the end of each chicken breast. Roll up each breast, and fasten with toothpicks.
  4. In a large skillet, heat a small amount of oil over medium high heat. Cook chicken breasts in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes to lightly brown. Place browned rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

This is a great recipe. It looks really impressive and it's quite easy to make. I think next time I might try a milder cheese -- maybe jack or swiss. At times the gruyere really over-powered ...

Didn't care for this at all, the gruyere cheese was overwhelming, just overwhelming. Won't try this again anytime soon. Way too strong of a cheese.

Easier to make than I thought, and I couldn't believe that my kids loved it! Served it with a basic bechamel sauce as suggested. I went light on the cheese based on other comments but I would pr...

This turned out very well. I taught this to my Home Ec class and everyone raved! Here are my mini-modifications: - Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally/length-wise so as to have two th...

My son loves these and he is a very picky eater. Easy to make and tastes wonderful!
