Chicken Cordon Bleu

There was some Swiss cheese in the refrigerator, left over from making 1905 Salad, so we decided it could help make a special Sunday dinner - Chicken Cordon Bleu.  Here's our version.
Flatten one boneless chicken breast per person, season with salt and pepper, top with thin slices of ham and Swiss cheese.  Roll up and secure with toothpicks.  (Note: if you use colored toothpicks, the dye will transfer to the chicken.  Just so you know.)  Roll in some bread/cracker/corn flake crumbs and place in a buttered casserole dish.  Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes, or until cooked through.  Add a few more cheese slices on top for the last five minutes if desired.  Remove the toothpicks (carefully!) and serve.  Enjoy!

  1. You can also cook it in the microwave. That's what we did in my cooking class. It takes about 8 minutes to cook. It tastes pretty good, but I'm sure it tastes better when cooked in the oven.
