Take the chicken breast season both side with salt and pepper. Now put the gruyere cheese (take the young Swiss cheese as it is creamy and nutty in this stage but with age it become more complex slightly grainy very similar to human nature hahaha ! jokes apart, gruyere truly adds savories without overshadowing the other ingredients and it is one of the best cheese for baking) in the middle and then roll it up, securing with toothpicks. Sprinkle salt and pepper in it. Take a fry pan then put a table spoon of olive oil slightly fry both side of the chicken roll. Now in a baking dish take this roll and bake it in 356 degree F for 10 minutes.
In the mean time take a pan give 1 table spoon of olive oil sauté 2 table spoon of chopped onion and one tea spoon of chopped garlic . Put off the flame now in a bowl take boiled potato , sauté onion and garlic, 1/2 table spoon of butter you can add more if your health permit and salt and freshly ground pepper. Now mash the whole thing very well. Keep aside.
Now put a fry pan on flame give 2 table spoon of olive oil in it. Then add 2 table spoon of chopped onion and one tea spoon of chopped garlic. Sauté for a minute add the diced zucchini, eggplant and tomato now sauté for 3 to 4 minutes add onion flakes stir well. Add tomato puree salt and pepper and finely chopped parsley. Mix well. Put off the flame. Keep aside.
Now heat 1/2 table spoon of butter and stir the asparagus with salt and pepper. Yes the step by step preparation is ready. It’s now time to serve it in style. You can arrange it in layer like put the mashed potato in the first layer then a second layer of stir fried vegetables then the baked chicken breast and above it the asparagus ( garnish with few fresh leaves of sweet basil) or you can place them in sides but the real taste of Swiss chicken roll will come when you put a small portion of all the ingredients in your mouth at the same time.I assure after having this chicken rolls one word of appreciation will definitely come from your family -“LOVELY DEAR!”
