- 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup julienned fully cooked ham (1/4 pound)
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon dill weed

- In a shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese; set aside. Pound each chicken breast to 1/4-in. thickness. Brush both sides with mustard; coat evenly with crumb mixture. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes or until juices run clear. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, saute ham in butter for 2 minutes. Stir in flour until smooth and bubbly. Add cream, dill and remaining Parmesan; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Spoon over chicken. Serve with parsley buttered potatoes if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
Reviews forChicken with Dilly Ham Sauce
"This intrigued me as I was thumbing through recipes for dinner prior to our Thanksgiving feast this year. I loved how quickly and easily it came together. I didn't flatten the chicken breast. I left them intact and turned the oven only to 375 and baked for about 30 minutes, until the juices were running clear but the coating was nicely crisp. I also used diced ham instead of julienned, but otherwise made as directed. Served over a bed of lightly buttered egg noodles and got a thumbs up from the husband. Will definitely do this again!"
