4 boneless skinless chicken breast (about 1 1/4 lb)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
4 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
4 very thin slices lean cooked ham (about 3/4 oz each)
4 very thin slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese (about 3/4 oz each)
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/3 cup finely crushed corn flakes or bran flakes cereal
1/4 teaspoon paprika


1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8-inch square (2 quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness.

2 Spread each chicken breast with 1/2 teaspoon mustard; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chives. Cut ham and cheese slices to fit chicken. Top each chicken breast with ham and cheese slice. Roll up, tucking ends inside.

3 In shallow bowl, combine egg white and water; beat slightly. Place cereal crumbs in shallow dish. Coat chicken rolls with egg white mixture; roll in crumbs. Place in baking dish; sprinkle with paprika.
