Chicken Cordon Bleu Redo

I was at the grocery store yesterday and was looking around at what I might pick up for dinner.  I first picked up some chicken breasts, having no idea how I was going to cook them.  As I wandered around the store I thought what about chicken cordon bleu?  I could do my own version of it.  So here is what I did.

1 chicken breast split into 2
Small hand full fresh parsley
Couple of small sections fresh oregano
1 small stalk fresh tarragon
Sliced ham
Sliced Havarti cheese
2 eggs
Seasoned bread crumbs
Cooking twine
Finely chop parsley, oregano and tarragon.  Pound chicken flat, sprinkle with salt and pepper, place a small amount of herbs onto both chicken breasts.  Layer ham and cheese over herbs.  Carefully roll up chicken breast and tie in 2 places with twine. Roll tied chicken into flour to coat, then egg to coat and then into seasoned bread crumbs.  Add chicken to a greased baking dish and place into a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and cook for about 30-45 minutes.  Use a thermometer to check internal temperature, you want it to reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Serve with vegetables.
