  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  2. Place ham and cheese slices on top of each breast
  3. Fold/roll over and fasten with toothpicks
  4. On waxed paper, mix flour and paprika, then roll chicken breasts in the mixture
  5. In a large skillet, melt butter, then cook chicken until browned on all sides
  6. Reduce to low, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender.
