1 4 ounce package H-E-B smoked salmon

8 to 12 thin slices Gruyère cheese (2 to 3 ounces)

Butterfly each chicken breast by cutting a horizontal pocket from one
side through the center to within 1/4-inch of opposite side.
Evenly layer salmon slices, then mushrooms, onions, parsley and cheese
over one-half of each butterflied chicken breast. Close other half of

f breasts reads 160 degrees.

r or food processor with sour cream and salt. Serve chicken whole or i
n 1/2-inch thick slices, drizzled with sauce.
