    2 slices provolone cheese (1 ounce each)
    2 slices deli ham (3/4 ounce each)
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1-1/2 teaspoons butter
    1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil

cover and boil for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place asparagus
 in ice water. Drain and pat dry.

    Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread mustard over one side of each 

chicken breast.  Down the center of each, place  a cheese slice, ham slice 
and four asparagus spears. Fold chicken over asparagus; 
secure with toothpicks.

combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip chicken in the flour,
 egg, then bread crumb mixture.

    In a large skillet, brown chicken on all sides in butter and oil. 
Transfer to an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. 
Add chicken broth to skillet, stirring to loosen browned 
bits from pan. Pour over chicken.
