Delicious combination of flavors. Made one small change: pounded the chicken breasts between plastic wrap until 1/2" before cooking for 3-4 mins each side. Then rolled the remainder of the ingredients up in the breasts, secured with toothpicks, baked until cheese slightly melted.

This was definitely different, but was pleasantly surprised. My hubby who doesn't usually like chicken, liked it, the ham slices were perfect for him. Loved it !
