Swiss Chicken

The best part about this is seeing your sister across the table, and your brother and parents down either side...

Swiss Chicken

6 Chicken breasts pounded to 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick

Roll up (or fold) with these fillings (use toothpicks if needed):
- Fresh apple slices (or dried fruit, like pears or peaches), 1 medium/large => 4 pieces each breast
- 12 slices Swiss cheese  => 2 slices each breast

Dip in 2 beaten eggs w/ 1-2 tsp smoked paprika

Place in casserole pan; add any remaining fruit and egg mixture to pan
Sprinkle w/ bread crumbs*
Bake @400 ~55 min**
- 40 min covered
- 15-20 min uncovered

Serve (6-12) w/
- Broccoli or asparagus cooked 7 minutes in a little water and butter, then stir in cream and nutmeg
- Green salad
- Chardonnay

* mix with butter for better browning
** time will vary depending on how closely packed the chicken is in the pan (this time is for a very packed dish)
