Turkey or Chicken Cordon Blue--Weight Watchers

"This is one that my daughter makes that is delicious. It came from an older Weight Watchers Cookbook. It has only 4 points per serving. Even you non-WW friends will like it. You may use chicken breasts that you pound out into a cutlet. I prefer the chicken to the turkey."

  1. Although both DH and I liked this we were not in love with it. Maybe because of the Turkey. Another reviewer loved it but had made it with chicken. I think that would be my choice of poultry if I was to prepare this again. We did love the mushrooms/onion mixture. I only had sliced ham so that is what I used. I laid the ham on top before adding the mushroom/onion mixture and finally topped it with the cheese. Thanks for posting. :)
  2. Made this with and without sauteing the ham first and it is definately better if you do NOT saute the ham first --- plus do not overcook in oven!
  3. This was outstanding! I was looking for a recipe for dinner and came across this one. All I had was a bag of the flash-frozen chicken breasts, so I wasn't hopeful that it would turn out great. But, wow, the chicken turned out moister and juicier than any chicken I've ever made! And the mushrooms, onion, and ham mixture was so tasty! A winner that I will definitely be making again. Thanks Mimi!
  4. Made as directed using chicken but not pimento because I didn't have any. This was a bit on the bland side. Maybe double the poultry seasoning? On the new Points Plus program, this equals 6 points per serving. Not sure if we will make this again or not.
  5. This was delicious! Loved it and got a thumbs up from my husband too. I used chicken, added more onion (we love onion!) and diced red pepper as well. Delicious.


  1. My favorite weight watchers meal yet! I made a few alterations though. I used boneless skinless chicken breast instead of turkey, I omitted the pimentos (because I didn't have any), and I increased the amount of onions and mushrooms since they're free. I LOVED THIS RECIPE!
