Sprinkle the chicken breast with salt. 2~Cut cheese into 4 strips. Place 1 strip of cheese in the center of each chicken breast. Fold the sides of the chicken over the cheese to enclose completely. Secure with wooden toothpicks, if necessary. 3~On two seperate sheets of wax paper, place bread crumbs and 2 tbs. of flour. In a pie plate , combine eggs and milk.
