Oven chicken cordon bleu

1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8-inch square (2 quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast to ¼-inch thickness (see Flattening Chicken Breasts).
2 Spread each chicken breast with ½ teaspoon mustard; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chives. Cut ham and cheese slices to fit chicken. Top each chicken breast with ham and cheese slice. Roll up, tucking ends inside.

3 In shallow dish, slightly beat egg white and water. Place cereal crumbs in another shallow dish. Coat chicken rolls with egg white mixture; roll in crumbs. Place in baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika.
4 Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
