Ham Swiss Mushroom Chicken

This recipe has become a new favorite. Slices of ham, swiss cheese, sauteed mushrooms over chicken breast. Easy to make and taste as good as it looks. 

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
1 large egg
1 cup crushed butter-flavored crackers (about 25 crackers)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons butter, divided
4 slices deli ham or thinly sliced hard salami
4 slices Swiss cheese

Preheat broiler. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. Combine cracker crumbs and salt in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg, then roll in crumbs; set aside.

In a large ovenproof skillet, saute mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook chicken over medium heat in remaining butter for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.

Top each chicken breast half with a ham slice, mushrooms, and a cheese slice. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
