This is one of my very favorites! The Alfredo sauce is delicious. Fattening but Oh so Good.

4 skinless boneless chicken breast
4 slices ham

2 eggs beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp minced garlic
1 pound sweet butter
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
For chicken, season breast on both sides with salt and pepper and than cover with plastic wrap and pound with dull side of mallet. Onto pounded chicken, place a slice of ham, basil leaf, and sliced cheese, then roll. Roll the chicken in flour, egg and then finally bread crumbs coating well. Heat oil in a large sauce pot and when hot, brown chicken. Deep fry until golden brown then remove and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
