Chicken Cordon Bleu

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
8 slices Swiss Cheese
8 slices ham (choose ham from the deli)
1/2 C bread crumbs
1/4 tsp. paprika
Preheat oven to 400º. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Slice chicken longways, but not all the way through. Sandwich a slice of swiss cheese between two slices of ham and place inside the chicken. Fold closed and secure with toothpicks.
Beat eggs slightly with a fork and pour onto a plate or a shallow dish. Combine bread crumbs and paprika and pour onto a plate or shallow dish (seperate from the egg).
Using your hands, dip and cover each breast in egg. Then repeat in the bread crumb mixture.
Place in the baking dish and put a small pat of butter on top of each breast.
Cook about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Add another slices of swiss cheese on top of each breast and cook until melted.
Serve with Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Sauce!
