Servings 4 servers



  • 4 Chicken Breasts of Reasonable Size
  • 4 slices Ham I like from the Bone or Black Forest
  • 4 slices Swiss Cheese Long Slices
  • 4 Tbsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning Or other grilled chicken seasoning
  • cooking twine

Dijon Cream Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinigar
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pre-heat Grill to with medium high heat

  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.

  4. Lay down some plastic wrap and lay two breasts slightly overlapping on the plastic wrap.

  5. Place two slices of swiss cheese then two slices of ham across the chicken breasts.

  6. Now use the plastic wrap to roll the chicken into a log.

  7. Repeat for other two breasts.

  8. Prepare a pan or dish and laydown 3-4 lengths of twine. Line bottom of the dish/pan with Lemon Pepper Seasoning. Place the chicken rolls on the twine and tie. Now roll the chicken breasts logs through the seasoning to get evenly coated on all sides.

  9. Place chicken on grill and cook until the chicken is cooked at 165 degrees. Roll the chicken every several minutes to cook evenly throughout. While the chicken is cooking through all of the Dijon sauce ingredients into a bowl and mix, keep cool until ready to serve.
