  • 1egg
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 8 ounces Swiss cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • canola oil for pan-frying
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


  • Step 2

    Combine the chicken, ham, and egg in a large bowl until well blended. Gradually add bread crumbs until the mixture loses its stickiness and can be easily formed into balls.

    Form the chicken mixture around the cheese cubes, forming 2 inch balls. Place on a plate.
