This entree is easy to prepare but looks and tastes special enough for company and special-occasion suppers. Everyone enjoys the golden chicken breasts topped with ham, melted Swiss cheese and fresh mushrooms.—Jan Baxter, Humarock, Massachusetts

"Yum! This was really tasty and easy. I used Panko bread crumbs and Jarlsberg cheese and followed the directions as written. I'm very pleased with this recipe and I will absolutely make it again!"

"This is a very simple recipe and delicious - I use a good quality imported ham. I have made it many times, and it reheats well."

"This is an excellent recipe, thanks so much! It's also very versatile. I love this recipe just the way it is, but sometimes I change it up a bit by omitting the ham and serving it with provolone or mozzarella cheese with homemade spaghetti sauce as chicken parmesan. Sooooo good."
