Sage Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

It's nice to surprise the family with special meals like this during the week. I usually double the recipe so we can enjoy leftovers the next day. —Martha Stine, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 6 slices thinly sliced deli ham
  • 6 strips part-skim mozzarella cheese (3 inches x 1-1/2 inches x 1/2 inch)

  • 3/4 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/8-in. thickness. Place a ham slice, a mozzarella cheese strip, 1 tablespoon tomato and 1/8 teaspoon sage down the center of each chicken breast. Roll up and tuck in ends; secure with toothpicks.
