Meaty, cheesy, moist, and crunchy: This 5-ingredient dish really delivers. Preheating the baking sheet is key to getting the breadcrumb coating crisp within the 20-minute timeframe. If you only have regular breadcrumbs, you can use those and add 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. The timing and ingredient amounts work with small, 2-ounce chicken cutlets. If your cutlets are larger, split them in half: Place each one flat on a cutting board, and place your nondominant hand flat on the breast. Holding a sharp knife parallel to cutting board, carefully split cutlet in half using short, swift strokes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place a rimmed baking sheet in oven, and preheat oven to 500°F. (Do not remove baking sheet while oven preheats.)

Step 2

Place breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Brush cutlets with oil; dredge in breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Top each cutlet with 1 piece of ham and 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese. Carefully roll cutlets, starting at the short end; secure with wooden picks.

Step 4

Place roll-ups, seam side down, on preheated baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 8 minutes. Increase heat to broil; broil until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion reads 165°F, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
