Chicken Cordon Bleu

I went to the most amazing baby shower today for my friend Megan. Her mom, Nancy, hosted it at her house and it was spectacular! I can't even begin to explain all the details. I told Meg to send me pictures so that I can share them on the blog! I was so happy to have been able to be there for this joyous day. Now we are awaiting the arrival of sweet baby Sarah! (Click here to see Megan's blog with pictures from the shower. She also posted the beautiful poem she recited to her mom during the shower.)

This recipe came from Gina's Weight Watcher blog. She went the extra mile and used low fat swiss and ham. Also by making her own bread crumbs with a special cereal (I can't remember which one...) Therefore mine isn't quite weight watchers, but it is lower in fat than regular Cordon Bleu. 

Chicken Cordon Bleu
6 Chicken Tenders
3 Tb Honey Mustard (I mixed equal parts of mustard and honey together)
2 Tb white wine
3 individual portions of Laughing Cow Blue Cheese
3 slices black forest ham
3 slices swiss cheese
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 Tb regular fine bread crumbs
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 tsp powdered onion
1/8 tsp paprika
1 tsp parsley flakes

Stir together honey, mustard and wine. Set aside. Mix together bread crumbs, garlic, onion, parsley and paprika.
Use your meat hammer and pound the chicken to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut the cheese and ham in half.
Spread half of blue cheese portion on each chicken tender. Layer with ham and swiss, then roll up.
Dip in honey mustard mix then roll in bread crumb mix.
Bake on 375 for 25 mins.

It looks pretty!
