    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    ½ c. plus 3 tbsp Hy-Vee all-purpose flour, divided
    2 Hy-Vee large eggs, lightly beaten
    1 c. plus 2 tbsp Hy-Vee skim milk, divided
    1 c. Hy-Vee panko crumbs
    2 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs, such as rosemary, sage, oregano and/or thyme
    ¾ tsp. Hy-Vee kosher sea salt
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
    4 (1/4-inch thick) slices Di Lusso country-style ham (about 10 oz total)
    3 (6 oz each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    2 tbsp. Di Lusso deli-style mustard
    4 tbsp. Hy-Vee butter, divided
    1 c. heavy whipping cream
    4 oz. Di Lusso smoked Gouda cheese*, shredded
    1 lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed and steamed


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
    2. Place 1/2 cup flour in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, stir together eggs and 2 tablespoons milk. In a third shallow bowl, combine panko crumbs, herbs, salt and pepper. Set all three bowls aside.
    3. Cut each ham slice into quarters; set aside. Cut each chicken breast into 1-1/2-inch chunks. Working in batches, coat chicken with flour. Dip in egg mixture; lastly coat with crumb mixture.
    4. Alternately thread crumb-coated chicken and ham onto eight 6-inch-long skewers. Arrange skewers on prepared pan.
    5. Melt 1 tablespoon butter; combine with mustard. Brush onto skewered ham.
    6. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees.
    7. For smoked Gouda sauce, in a medium saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium to medium-high heat. Whisk in 3 tablespoons flour until combined. Whisk in 1 cup milk and cream. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in cheese until smooth. Serve sauce with skewers and steamed green beans.
    8. *Have deli cut about a 1-inch slice of cheese so it can be easily shredded at home.
