Cordon Bleu

Thank you Beverly! This is what Beverly had to say about this recipe: "My family
loves Cordon Bleu. I have tried many recipes and finally found this one in the
Healthy Lifestyles W.W. Cookbook. It is by far the best that I have ever tried.
I have always forgotten to put the remaining mustard in the sauce and have always
used it with the brushing on the chicken. I once cooked this for a dinner party with
20+ guests with great results.  I never use toothpicks. If you stuff your chicken breast
and form into the roll and refrigerate for at least an hour, they will hold their shape
and not require those nasty toothpicks. Hope you and your readers enjoy this!"  
Sounds like a winner recipe to me!

Makes 2 servings

2 (3 oz) chicken cutlets
2 slices ham
2 slices swiss cheese
1 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp bread crumbs
1/2 can chicken broth
2 tsp flour
1 tbsp sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Top each cutlet with ham and then with cheese. Roll up
and secure with toothpick. In a mixing bowl - combine 1 tablespoon mustard and honey.
Spread mixture over rolls. Roll chicken bundles in the bread crumb mixture using
all of the crumbs. Spray lightly with Butter Spray. Bake until chicken is cooked through;
20-25 minutes. While the chicken is cooking - in a small saucepan, combine the broth
and flour, stirring until it dissolves. Cook over medium heat. Stir often until sauce
thickens, 3-4 minutes. Reduce sauce to low and stir in sour cream and remaining
mustard. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes on low. DO NOT BOIL. Remove toothpicks.
Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
