  • 4 Piece Chicken Breasts Flattened to about 1/4 of an inch
  • 4 tbsp Mustard I used Kasundi; 1 tbsp per chicken breast
  • 4 Piece Ham Pork; 1 slice per chicken breast
  • 4 Piece Cheese Sliced or grated; your choice; 1 slice per chicken breast
  • 0.5 teaspoon Salt I used smoked salt
  • 0.5 teaspoon Pepper
  • 8 Piece Nutrichoice Crackers Instead of breadcrumbs; Pulsed
  • 2 Piece Eggs For dipping the rolls
  • 1 tbsp Soda Water
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil To line the baking dish


  • Preheat your convection oven to 200-degree celsius.
  • Coat the baking dish with olive oil and set aside.
  • Wash and pat dry chicken breasts. Cut it into half and spread it out like a fillet. Flatten to 1/4th of an inch. You can also flatten them by placing in a ziplock bag and pounding them with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  • Place a chicken breast flat on a kitchen board and layer with one tablespoon of mustard and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place a slice of ham on top of the chicken, add a layer of cheese and roll. Set them seam side down.
  • In a bowl beat eggs with 1 tablespoon of soda water to make an egg wash. If not available replace with drinking water.
  • In another bowl add the pulsed nutrichoice crackers and season them. You can even grate some cheese into it.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg wash and then roll it in the crumbs coating thoroughly.
  • Place them into the baking dish seam side down and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Slice into discs and serve with a cucumber ribbon salad on the side.


  • Seal the corners with extra toothpicks to prevent cheese from oozing out. Though, toothpicks to hold the chicken closed on the ends are not really required.
  • Traditionally, this dish pairs well with Swiss cheese in it but you can use any cheese you like. And, you can also replace the ham with Prosciutto.
