Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have not had this dish in years, so I am very happy to find one on this site. I love the idea of using the muffin pan. I agree with britathrt 2083188 that Dijon mustard on the chicken to give it a nice bit of tartness to pair with the creaminess of the cheese.

Did this tonight..though my husband ate the ham for lunch so we used some chopped veggies instead of the ham. Wonderful!

makes it so much neater....don't have to beware of blowouts!! Cleanup was a breeze. I spread a tiny bit of Dijon mustard on the chicken before adding the ham/cheese.

Looks great and simple.

It helps the chicken stay rolled together while baking in the oven without the use of toothpicks!

I don't get the use of the muffin tin!
