stuffed chicken breasts

STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS
Before using mozzarella cheese, empty the package onto a chopping surface and finely chop the shredded cheese. I've found this helpful when rolling the mixture into the chicken. Combine the mozzarella and parmesiian cheese with egg and a pinch of garlic powder, mixing together thoroughly.
Remove chicken breats from wine, drain, lay flat and place 1 or 2 teaspoons of cheese mix on each. Place a few strips of ham and a few basil leaves on top of cheese, then carefully roll the chicken breasts up. Place chicken in a casserole dish. Brush a thin coat of olive oil on each, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper, cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover the chicken and place a pad of margarine on top of each chicken roll and bake until browned.
Wine: Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc
