Awsome recipe...Tasted excellent. I did a few things different. I filleted my chicken breast and put the cheese mix on top and rolled it up into the chicken. And instead of frying it for 2 min. on the stove, I took my baking dish and rubbed with the remaining oil and and lightly covered the bottom with the bread crumbs, set the chicken in the dish and sprinkled the remaining bread crumbs on top and just put it directly into the oven. I used low fat cream cheese w/swiss. And followed everything else as directed.
Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu
From EatingWell: November/December 2009
To make traditional cordon bleu, you layer prosciutto (or other ham) and cheese in between thin slices of chicken or veal, then bread and sauté the whole stack. This quick, easy version keeps the flavors the same, but skips the fussy layering and breading steps. Serve with: Delicata squash and broccoli.

I usually make this with whatever sandwich meat I have on hand, and people still love it.
I've also made it with swiss and ricotta instead of cream cheese and that turned out really good- in fact, we actually preferred it. Great recipe, great idea.
Awesome! everyone loved it...i split the chiken breast in half horizontally and it was plenty per serving, A whole breast would've been too much. I also used bacon (pre cooked to drain off grease) instead of ham, just because i didn't have any ham in the house, and it was wonderful.I left it cook longer than stated...i cooked it abotu 15 minutes in the pan, added the other ingredients and then about 15 min in the oven. yum, cripy topping, cheesy middle perfectly cooked suculant chicken. I served it with leftover sweet potatoe casserole from Easter dinner, and broccoli with cheese sauce....it was a hit! i'll make it again.
I've already made this several times since receiving the issue -- the taste is fabulous and this is easy to prepare. I had some prosciutto on hand the first time I made it and it was so great that I have used it every time since...I also have used panko when I've had them and I love the lightness of teture they bring to the dish. Quick chicken cordon bleu is highly recommended!!
