    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!
