Well it doesn't take the prettiest picture, but it sure is tasty! I came up with this in an effort to make Chicken Cordon Bleu a little less complicated. All the rolling and dipping, too messy. Instead I use chicken tenders and layer my ingredients.
6-8 chicken tenders, pound to about 1/2 inch
4 slices of swiss cheese, cut in half
1-2 tbsp cream cheese (yes, cream cheese)
3 slices thin sliced deli ham
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup chicken broth
Spray a casserole dish with a non stick spray. For the first layer lay out 3-4 chicken tenders. Sprinkle with a small amount of breadcrumbs. For the next layer spread cream cheese over 4 swiss cheese halves and lay over chicken. On top of the swiss cheese lay out ham. Next is another layer of chicken, topped with bread crumbs and another slice of swiss cheese. Then pour a small amount of chicken broth around the edges so they don't dry out. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Check to be sure that the BOTTOM layer of chicken is cooked thoroughly.
*Note, I usually give the top layer of bread crumbs a little spray with oil before laying the cheese on top.
