MaryAnn's Easy Cordon Bleu
This is super easy to make when you are having company over for dinner. It looks really nice, and they think you went to a lot of work. When I am making more than just for my little family, I bake it instead of simmer it. After I brown the chicken breasts, I place them in a large baking pan. Then I top them with the ham and sauce mixture. Cover and bake it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the chicken is done. Then top with the swiss cheese and place back in the oven, uncovered, until cheese is melted.
But here are the directions (even with step-by-step pictures!) for the easy stove-top, only-get-one-pan-dirty, way to make them.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
5 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
5 slices of ham
5 slices of swiss cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup lemon juice (use more or less, according to your taste)
1. Brown chicken breasts in a little bit of olive oil.
