Laughing Cow Chicken Cordon Bleu

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
Ingredients
8 oz chicken breast
1 wedge Laughing Cow cheese (I used garlic and herb flavored)
6 slices deli ham
pepper to taste
Directions
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.
1 breast = 345 calories (2g Carbs, 11g Fat, 55g Protein)
