Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I am always on the search for a delicious, low calorie/fat, EASY dinner to make and this one is definitely a winner. I have always been a fan of the Laughing Cow cheese spread but more recently I have been using it in dishes instead of just a spread. I was reading recently on one of my fitness message boards how it is delicious used in a Chicken Cordon Bleu so I decided to give it a shot. And I am glad I did.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
8 oz chicken breast
1 wedge Laughing Cow cheese (I used garlic and herb flavored)
6 slices deli ham
pepper to taste
1. Pound the bageezes out of the chicken until it is about 1/4 inch thick. This was the fun part, I pictured my hubby’s face on it. (just kidding sweetie (not really, wake up, get off the couch and help me with the kids so I can blog))
2. Spread the Laughing Cow cheese evenly over the flattened chicken breast. I used the garlic and herb flavored cheese because that just sounded good. In the future, I would like to try the other flavors, possibly the swiss cheese flavor to make it a true chicken cordon bleu.
3. Spread the sliced ham over the cheese. Easy right?
4. Now roll roll that puppy up, stick a tooth pick in it and it’s ready to bake!
5.Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes.
