  1. Set 1 chicken breast on a cutting board. Hold a sharp knife parallel to the cutting board and along one long side of the breast; cut chicken breast almost in half, leaving breast attached at one side. Open breast so it lies flat like a book and cover with plastic wrap. Lightly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. Repeat with remaining chicken breast.
  2. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper. Spread Dijon mustard on top. Place 1 slice of cheese on each breast. Top each with 2 slices of ham and 1 slice of cheese. Roll each breast up and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Place egg in a second bowl. Mix panko bread crumbs and grated Parmesan in a third bowl.
  4. Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Dip chicken first in flour, followed by egg, and finally roll in the bread crumb mixture. Spray chicken rolls with nonstick spray and let sit for 5 minutes while the air fryer preheats.
  6. Place chicken in the basket of the preheated air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Spray any chalky spots with nonstick spray again. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 8 minutes more.

It had to cook a lot longer than the time given. A lot

Very tasty and easy to make.

I seldom review a recipe, but this one is truly 5 star. My only change was to use Italian bread crumbs instead of panko. The chicken was moist and and flavorful. Fantastic.

I pounded my chicken to make it easier to handle. Added smoked Gouda and prosciutto. Took closer to 35 minutes for the inner chicken was still raw at 20 minutes. Pretty standard recipe.

Would add more spice and use cheddar cheese but well worth it.
