Chicken Cordon Bleu II

"This is a combination of several recipes using ingredients that I usually have on hand. I used the kind of ham that comes in 3 ounce packages with about 8 very thin slices. (Buddig is the brand if that helps.) For cheese I used one wedge of low fat Laughing Cow swiss cheese per breast. DH loved it so I thought I'd share!"

    We hadn't had Chicken Cordon Bleu in a while and we sure enjoyed this dish. It won't be the last time. There is something to be said about this combination that includes ham and Swiss and it supports that fact that it has been popular after all these many years. The only thing I would do different is season the chicken with salt and pepper, but being careful not to overdo it considering there is salt in the ham and cheese already. Thank you, Linky for sharing. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game.....https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/4foodfriendsandfun/cooking-games-f69/

    Very easy and tasty. I had some Gruyere to use up, so used that, but will try it with the Laughing Cow next time. I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs.
