Swiss Mushroom Chicken

This is one of Ryan's favorite chicken recipes:

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 egg
1 cup crushed butter-flavored crackers (about 25 crackers)
¾ tsp. salt
½ pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 TB butter or margarine, divided
4 slices ham or salami
4 slices Swiss cheese

Flatten chicken to ¼-inch thickness. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. Combine cracker crumbs and salt in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg, then in crumbs; set aside. In a large ovenproof skillet, saute mushrooms in 1 TB butter until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, melt remaining butter. Add chicken; cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Top each chicken breast half with a ham slice, mushrooms, and a cheese slice. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.

I made this one last night, and it was DELISH!!! One of my new favorites. It was much easier and better tasting than cordon blue!
