Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Cordon Bleu

2 unit+yield+from+1+lb+ready-to-cook+chicken chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Swiss cheese
2 oz neufchatel cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 cup chopped ham

Recipe Directions for Chicken Cordon Bleu

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Combine cheese and cream cheese in a bowl. Combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper with breadcrumbs, parsley (or thyme) and 2 teaspoons oil in another bowl.

  3. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large, ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching. Spread with the cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, then top with the breadcrumb mixture.

  4. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 165F, 5 to 7 minutes.
