Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu
This quick and easy cordon bleu keeps the flavors the same, but skips the fussy layering and breading steps.
||Pre-heat oven to 400° F (200° C).
||Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Combine cheese and cream cheese in a bowl.
||Combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper with breadcrumbs, parsley (or thyme) and 2 teaspoons olive oil in another bowl.
||Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large, ovenproof non-stick skillet over medium heat.
||Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching.
||Spread with the cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, then top with the breadcrumb mixture.
||Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 165° F (75° C), 5 to 7 minutes.
||Note: serve with delicata squash and broccoli.
