Chicken Cordon Bleu

Serves: 4

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Shopping list 

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup coarse whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped ham


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Combine cheese and cream cheese in a bowl. Combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper with breadcrumbs, parsley and 2 teaspoons oil in another bowl.

  1. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large, ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching. Spread with the cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, and then top with the breadcrumb mixture.

  1. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F, 5 to 7 minutes.
