"The moist chicken with its savory filling makes a special entree for two, yet it's not tricky to prepare," notes Katherine Suter of Prescott, Arizona.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped tart apple
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fully cooked ham

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, saute the apple, ham, mushrooms and onion in 1 tablespoon oil until onion and apple are tender. Stir in mustard, bread crumbs and lemon-pepper. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness; top each with the apple mixture. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Coat with flour.
