Recipe Collection: Chicken Cordon Bleu
OMG, the chicken cordon bleu turned out so good. I got the recipe from a cookbook called The Hungry Girl.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
1 chicken breast, washed and dried, and pounded to 1/4"
1 wedge Laughing Cow Lite cheese
2 paper thin slices of low fat ham (the cheap lunch meat package is what I used)
Lay out pounded chicken breast. Spread cheese on top. Put ham slices on top of this. Roll up like a blintz and secure with a wooden toothpick. Back in a baking dish, sprayed with Pam, covered in foil for 20 minutes. Remove foil and cook an additional 15 minutes.
Note: I made these regular size portions for the rest of the family. For me, I cut the breast in half, used half a wedge on each, and 1 slice of ham. This way I had one portion for dinner last night and one portion for lunch tomorrow. I made 8 regular portions, plus my 2 little ones, and I extended the cooking time by 5 minutes. It was so good - even the 10 year old was impressed.
