Chicken with Ham and Provalone Cheese
Source of Recipe
3 whole chicken breasts
9 slices cured Polish ham
2-3 T seedless raspberry jam
1 1/2 c. uncooked rice
3 c. water
1 1/2 lbs. broccoli
6-8 slices provalone cheese
Use vegetable oil or cooking spray to lightly grease a large baking
dish. (I used a 9x12" cake tin.) Remove the broccoli heads from
the stems. Trim the stems, slice and chop coarsely like celery.
Put the rice and the chopped broccoli stems in the bottom of the
baking dish. Spread the ham slices with raspberry jam and wrap
them (raspberry side down) around all sides of each chicken breast.
Arrange the chicken breasts down the center of the dish, break the
broccoli head into pieces and place around the chicken. Add 3 c.
Cover and bake 45 min. at 350'F. Remove dish from oven (to check
chicken for doneness, cut into it with a knife or fork -- meat
should be white, juices should run clear), cover chicken breasts
with slices of cheese and put additional pieces of cheese over the
rice and broccoli, then return to oven and bake uncovered another
5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Split chicken breasts to
