1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Top each chicken cutlet with 1 slice turkey-ham and 1 slice cheese; starting from the narrow end, roll each cutlet jelly-roll fashion. Secure with toothpicks.
2. In small mixing bowl combine 1 tablespoon mustard and the honey; spread half of the mixture evenly over each chicken roll.
3. On sheet of wax paper arrange bread crumbs; turn chicken rolls in bread crumbs, coating all sides and using all of the bread crumbs. Arrange chicken rolls on nonstick baking sheet and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon oil. Bake until chicken is cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
4. While chicken is baking prepare sauce. In small saucepan combine broth and flour, stirring to dissolve flour. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in sour cream and remaining mustard; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes longer (do not boil).
5. To serve, remove toothpicks and cut each chicken roll crosswise into 4 equal slices. Onto each of 2 serving plates pour half of the sauce and top with 4 chicken roll slices.
