Ingredients

Directions

1. Pre-heat oven to 400° F (200° C).
2. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Combine cheese and cream cheese in a bowl.
3. Combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper with breadcrumbs, parsley (or thyme) and 2 teaspoons olive oil in another bowl.
4. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large, ovenproof non-stick skillet over medium heat.
5. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching.
6. Spread with the cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, then top with the breadcrumb mixture.
7. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 165° F (75° C), 5 to 7 minutes.
8. Note: serve with delicata squash and broccoli.
