This is one of those recipes that takes me a little bit longer to put together so we don’t have it as often as some of the other recipes. It is also a bit more expensive to make so it is a treat when we do have it.

- 10 – 12 slices of ham

Preheat your oven to 350.
Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine and whisk in the flour until well combined.
Slowly add the chicken broth making sure to stir well.
When the sauce starts to thicken add the mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir and remove from heat.

Pour a small amount of the sauce on the bottom of the pan.
Place the chicken in the bottom of the pan and season with salt and pepper, as desired.
