Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cutting board with parchment paper.

2

Place chicken on parchment paper and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Optional: Try coating chicken breasts in pork rind crumbs or low-carb breadcrumb replacement to make the chicken extra crispy.

3

Cut each chicken breast width-wise, almost in half, but not all the way through.

Note: Chicken should resemble and open-book shape.

4

Place a second sheet of parchment paper over the halved chicken breast and flatten with a rolling pin or mallet.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine and melt the butter, cream cheese, and mustard.

Spread the mixture onto the open chicken breasts.

7

Layer ham and cheese slices on top of the mixture.

8

Fold the top of the chicken back down and close with either a toothpick or twine.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

10

Place chicken breasts in skillet and cook until fully done (no longer pink inside).

11

Place chicken in a large roasting pan and bake for an additional 10–15 minutes.

Note: For crispier chicken, broil for an additional few minutes.

*Optional: Turn on broiler to make the cheese golden brown.
