Have each child place a chicken breast between two sheets of waxed paper. With a meat mallet or rolling pin have them beat chicken several times to flatten. Place chicken in aluminum pan. Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on top of the chicken. Roll up and hold together with toothpicks if needed. Remove gloves and wash hands.

In a bowl, have one child add a can of cream of chicken soup. Have another child add sour cream. Take turns stirring. Add 1/2 Cup of milk if you'd like a thinner sauce. Each kid chef can spoon sauce over their chicken. Have each child put their name on their pan with masking tape. Cook at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until chicken is cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, prepare a dessert or other recipe you have planned, decorate aprons, chef hats or play cooking games.
