Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu
Time to channel your inner Julia. This is an amazing recipe. Once you get past the intimidation factor, it is an easy recipe. When you are finished, you have a sophisticated dish. And it is delicious. I made three chicken cordon bleu but you can make many more (and freeze them).

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Boneless Chicken Breasts
Slice of Swiss Cheese (One Per Chicken Breast)
Slice of Baked Ham (One Per Chicken Breast)
One Large Egg, Beaten
Toasted Bread Crumbs

Preheat your oven to 350F/176C/Gas Mark 4. Place the chicken breast between pieces of plastic wrap. Pound each chicken breast until thin. Place a piece of cheese and ham into the center of the pounded chicken.
