Chicken Cordon Bleu

If you're searching for a simple way to update the ordinary chicken breast this recipe from Hungry Girl is perfect for you. I altered the original recipe by omitting the ham since I'm not a fan of lunch meat. Instead of ham, I decided to add in some tasty spinach and sundried tomatoes. It may not be the typical cordon Bleu recipe, however, it is still scrumptious!

Chicken Cordon Bleu
Gluten Free
Serves One

1 (4 oz) thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup baby spinach leaves
3-4 pieces sundried tomatoes(not packed in oil), reconstituted and chopped
Salt and Pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a square baking dish with aluminum foil and spritz with nonstick spray. Set aside.

2. Lay the chicken breast flat on a clean work surface and season with salt and pepper. Spread cheese wedge over chicken, then evenly top with spinach leaves, and sprinkle with sundried tomatoes.

3. Starting with one of the smaller edges, roll up chicken breast tightly and place in baking dish seam side side.

4. Cover dish with foil and transfer to oven. Bake chicken for 20 minutes and then remove foil. Continue to bake chicken, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
