Chicken Cordon Bleu

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices ham
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
3-4 tablespoons of butter

Pound out chicken breast until it's about a half inch think all around. Place a slice of cheese and ham into the center, leaving a half inch border. Fold (or roll) the chicken until all internal contents are hidden. Secure edges tightly with toothpicks to minimize oozing. Combine flour and paprika, and then dredge each chicken breast. Shake off excess flour.

Heat a skillet to medium and melt butter. Cook each side of the chicken for 3-5 minutes then transfer to a baking pan and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
