8 thin slices (4 oz) deli ham
4-8 slices provolone cheese, halved
2/3 Cup seasoned breadcrumbs
½ cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

Flatten chicken to ¼-inch thickness. Place a slice of ham and half a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken. Roll up from a short end side and tuck in ends; secure with a toothpick. In a shallow bowl, combine crumbs, grated cheese and parsley. Pour milk into another bowl. Dip chicken rolls in milk, then roll in crumb mixture.

Wrap and freeze four chicken roll-ups for up to 2 months. Place the remaining roll-ups seam side down, on a greased baking sheet. Spritz chicken with non-stick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 25 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove toothpicks.
