For an entree that's as elegant as it is easy, try this moist classic chicken recipe. It's a simple dish for two, but looks like you really fussed. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

MY REVIEW

"I prepared as stated except used gluten free flour and gluten free seasoned bread crumbs. Also spread light layer of dijon mustard before adding ham and swiss. Increased baking time to 45 min due to not being able to pound chicken to 1/4". I also sprayed them with olive oil about 10 min before done because they weren't crisping up. Texture came out ok. Chicken was tender and juicy. But the recipe turned out bland. SUPER bland. I was not impressed at all. Nothing like restaurant Cordon Bleu."

"This was very tasty and very simple to make.It may not be as good as what you get in a fancy restaurant but for the time and price I give it 4 stars. I used thin cut breast fillets so I didn't have to flatten the chicken used 2 slices ham and cheese for each fillet. I will definitely make these again"

"Really, really good and easy! Did not have bread crumbs, so I used herb seasoned stuffing mix (Pepperidge Farm). I love to read the reviews to get different ideas on how to prepare."
