Not the greatest pictures of the chicken... sorry...
BUFFALO STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 slices deli ham
½ cup blue cheese crumbles
Salt and pepper
1 cup flour
¼-⅓ cup cornstarch (eyeball it)
2 large egg whites, beaten
1½ cups breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
About 3 tablespoons buffalo or hot sauce
Canola or other high temperature oil, for shallow frying
Split the breasts open and cut them across horizontally. Pound the meat out a little, then stuff the breasts with the ham and cheese. Fold the chicken over and press the edges together to secure the stuffed breasts. Season with salt and pepper and coat first in the flour mixed with cornstarch, then the egg whites, then the breadcrumbs tossed with the melted butter and mixed with hot sauce.
Heat a shallow layer of oil about a quarter-inch deep in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken on each side until golden and cooked through, about 6 minutes on each side. Drain the chicken briefly on paper towels and serve.

Now... funny story. I brought this to our "office Christmas party", and I totally did not expect this, but everyone just took a bite out of them and ate the cheese plain! I said "EWWWW!!!!" Get a cracker!!! EAT IT ON A CRACKER!! I can't imagine eating this without a cracker, but they liked it plain... so eat however you enjoy it! :)
