Yield 4 servings


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 thin slices deli ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese


  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste


  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat and oil grates well.
  2. Using a knife, make a pocket in the thick part of the chicken breast extending the length of the chicken breast without cutting through the sides or the bottom.
  3. Layer a slice of ham and cheese together and roll it up. Stick the roll in the pocket of the chicken. Repeat with the remaining breasts.
  4. For the Glaze: In a small bowl, mix the Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
  5. Brush the mixture generously on both sides of each chicken breast. Grill chicken for 8-10 minutes per side or until chicken is done, basting occasionally with the remaining glaze while cooking.
