Real Cooking

My friend over at One Little Corner of the World enjoys cooking a lot and often puts pictures on her blog of the food she has prepared. So, I have decided to do so as well! Here is part of tonight's dinner. It is Chicken Cordon Blue. This was the first real meal that I prepared for Hubby after we were married. He is an extremely picky eater and I try to find "different" sorts of recipes, but things he will still eat. This was the first one I came across in a cook book shortly after our wedding. We still like it, especially the cheesy, crispy part on top (of course, that is the worst part for your body!). Chicken Cordon Blue

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pkg. swiss cheese (8-12 slices)
1 pkg. ham slices, any variety
corn flakes
1 stick butter, melted

Cook chicken breasts in skillet on stove top in a small amount of oil just until the outsides turn white. Place them in a Pam-sprayed 9x13 pan. Place 2-3 slices of ham and then 2-3 slices of Swiss cheese on top of each breast. Squeeze corn flakes in your hands and put crumbs on top of breasts. Don't completely cover the breasts, but be somewhat liberal with the corn flakes. Pour melted butter (tonight I didn't use the entire amount of butter) over the breasts. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly. Enjoy!

**You could season the chicken breasts with seasoning of your choice before layering with ham and cheese.

Taking pictures of food is fun! I think I will have to try your chicken.
