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 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."

"We enjoy this. I always put the cheese on the meat and then the ham and mushrooms and more cheese. This way it sticks to the chicken instead of sliding off!"

"I made this reciepe many times. The key is to use a good quality ham. You can substitute boneless pork chops. Any hunters out there? Yes?...this is Great with Pheasant Breast."

"My family loves this! I now use the Foreman grill to first cook the breaded chicken. We don't miss (or need) the added fat."
