  • 24 oz skinless boneless chicken breast 4 medium
  • 3 oz lean deli ham 4 thin slices
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 oz reduced fat Swiss cheese 4 slices
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup keto breadcrumbs
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp water


Make the chicken rolls:

  • Dry the chicken cutlets with paper towels then pound them thin to 1/4 inch thick.
  • Season the chicken cutlets with salt and black pepper.
  • Slice the ham and Swiss cheese slices in halves (you’ll end up with  12 slices of each).
  • First, place 1 ham slice on top of every chicken cutlet, followed by 1 Swiss cheese slice and roll them all together. When finished, set the rolls aside with the seam side facing downwards.

Make the coat:

  • Whisk together the egg yolks and egg whites along with water in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs and the grated parmesan cheese.
  • Dip the chicken rolls into the egg wash, then into the breadcrumb mixture.


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease the baking sheet with butter (or spray with cooking spray).
  • Place the chicken cutlets onto the baking sheet, seam side down. Bake for 25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and cut the rolls into medium-size coils. Bring to serve.
