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

"This is an easy recipe that is delicious. I did not have bread crumbs, so I crushed potato chips and coated the chicken before I fried. Also, instead of putting melted butter, I made a onion and chicken broth gravy to put over the crispy chicken. The chicken was very moist and tender, and the gravy gave it great flavor."

"I have made this recipe before and it is VERY good! I have also made it simpler, for me, by simply layering the flattened chicken breasts, the ham and I use shredded Mozzarella, then ham, then chicken again. Put toasted bread crumbs on bottom and on top, drizzle a bit of melted butter over the top crumbs and bake. I usually cover the meat for about half the time, uncovered the rest of the time to have crispy."

"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."

"This is great! For a delicious sauce, I used a can of reduced-fat cream of chicken soup, couple of tablespoons of low-fat sour cream, splash of lemon, and a bit of dill. Stir that up and gently heat, serve with chicken (over rice is nice!). The second time I made it, I spread some spicy brown mustard over the chicken before adding the ham and cheese."
