Our 1st recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Perfect partner: broccoli

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (I use thin sliced chicken breasts which makes a lot more and you don't have to pound them thin. If you do it this way, you will need more of the following ingredients)
salt and pepper
4 thin slices of ham
2 ounces Swiss cheese, cut into 4 sticks
3 Tablespoons of butter
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350. Pound chicken between heavy duty plastic wrap to 1/4 inch thickness with a meat mallet. (using thin breasts, you don't have to do this).

Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Place a ham slice on each chicken, add Swiss cheese and roll it up. Tuck in sides and secure with toothpicks (I don't usually need to do this).

Melt butter in a baking dish in the oven. Dip chicken rolls in butter and roll in bread crumbs to coat.

Arrange chicken in baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is golden.
