i think this chicken cordon bleu was the best

We really liked this with the addition of cream cheese. It totally made the recipe. I agree that the chicken turned out very dry and I'm not sure of a good way to impove this. I used some plain crumbs mixed with italian crumbs and no Parmesan cheese (because we were out). My husband still said it was one of the top 3 meals I've no doubt we will have it again.

I liked this but it was a little dry. I used some plain crumbs mixed with seasoned crumbs and I added a about 1/2 a cup of Parmesan cheese to the crumbs too. I used Provolone for the cheese. For easier clean up, I would suggest spraying the pan with some cooking oil.
