Chicken Cordon Bleu

4 skinless, boneless Chicken Breast
1 slice of Deli Mozzarella cheese (processed cheese melts to quick) ¼” thick, cut into 4 strips. Block cheese works well just have to cut it to fit pocket in chicken.
1 package Budding type Ham
Flour for Dredging
Beaten Egg for Drenching
Italian seasoned Bread Crumbs for Dredging

Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees

Cut pocket in thick side of chicken breast. Roll 1 strip of cheese in ¼ of the ham slices.
Place ham and cheese into pocket of chicken, close pocket and secure with toothpicks
Dredge breast in flour then drench in egg and finally dredge in breadcrumbs, coating completely
Place in a casserole dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake chicken for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Pour 2 Tablespoon lemon juice into ½ stick melted butter.
Spoon a little of lemon butter on plated chicken.

I serve this with Pasta Alfredo

Ooh, this looks really yummy! I've always loved Chicken Cordon Bleu. I think I'm going to try it for dinner tonight. I might have to modify a few of the ingredients, because I don't have a car to run to the store in--mine's finally in the shop (Good for fixing, bad for a week of car-less-ness). I can't wait for dinner now. Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Thanks, I hope you enjoy it as much as my wife and I. Let me know how it turns out, also let me in on the modifications. I might want to borrow them.
