Don’t be fooled by its fancy name—this 5-ingredient dinner couldn’t be easier! Tender chicken breasts get stuffed with chopped ham and shredded Swiss cheese for an unfussy, delicious twist on traditional chicken cordon bleu.

Ingredients

4
large boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lb)
1/2
cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 oz)
1/2
cup finely chopped ham (2 oz)
3
tablespoons butter, melted
3/4
cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. To form pocket in each chicken breast, cut 3-inch-long slit in thick side of each breast, cutting into breast about 2 inches and to within 1/2 inch of opposite side.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix cheese and ham. Spoon evenly into pockets in chicken; secure openings with toothpicks.
  • 3 Place melted butter in shallow dish. Place bread crumbs on large plate. Dip each stuffed chicken breast into butter; roll in bread crumbs to coat. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Sprinkle any remaining bread crumbs over chicken.
  • 4 Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove toothpicks before serving.
