Ingredients for 5 people

5 chicken breasts

8 egg

2 breadcrumbs

1 cup of milk

1 cup of flour

1 tbsp of butter

10 edam cheese

5 ham


Olive oil


Bechamel sauce


3 baked potatoes


Ziplock bag

parchment paper

Meat tenderizer

Rolling pin or metal rod

Cling wrap

Step 1/4

To prepare the chicken, make a lengthwise incision in the center of the breasts to enable them to be flattened. Tenderize them by placing them in a freezer bag. Flatten them further by sandwiching them between two sheets of parchment paper and using a rolling pin. Coat them in flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs.

Step 2/4

Place the chicken breasts on a sheet of plastic wrap, then cover them with a smaller tray. Fold the chicken breasts over the top of the tray and leave them in the freezer for 2 hours to take on a taco shape. To make the béchamel sauce, gradually mix the milk with flour and butter in a saucepan until smooth.

Step 3/4

Cut the potatoes and place them in a bowl, sprinkle with spices, add salt, and mash them. Drizzle with olive oil and continue to mash. Place 2 slices of Edam cheese end-to-end vertically, then cover with a slice of ham of the same size. Place 1 tablespoon of mashed potatoes and make a hollow in the center. Pour béchamel sauce into the hollow and cover with mashed potatoes. Roll up the Edam cheese and set aside. Repeat the process to obtain 4 rolls.

Step 4/4

Fry the chicken in hot oil until golden brown. Place 1 Edam cheese roll in the center of each cutlet and bake for 15 minutes at 350°F. Serve with salad and sauce, enjoy!
