A very tasty dinner. Easy enough for a weekend. Needs more time in the oven than the recipe suggests...more like 15 minutes. Served with roasted sweet potatoes and steamed green beans.
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 made this for the pickiest eaters and the LOVED it! Very easy and very good. I will make this again.
This is a really easy and tasty recipe. Next time I make it, I will be sure to cut my chicken breasts in half - and slightly increase the ingredients for the topping. I used gruyere and prosciutto. Also, my 4 chicken breasts came out to just under 2 pounds total, so cooking time in oven was 25 minutes. Husband loved it and asked for this to be in our regular dinner rotation. It's a great, low carb dinner option. Will be making again!
Yum! I skipped the browning and baked for 20 minutes. I also make a similar chicken parmesan type dish- just omit ham, cheese & Swiss then top with low fat provolone, marinara, & croutons then bake. Also super good, easy, and fast!
I really thought this was a great recipe. Easy for a weeknight, and very very tasty. Plus, I usually have most of the ingredients on hand anyway. I used prosciutto, which was delicious. Also, the baking times are off--it really took more like 15 in the oven, perfect to steam a veggie and clean your prep dishes while it cooks. I will definitely make this again.
