Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Source: Kraft Food and Family Winter, 2006

2 cups Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Chicken in the multi-serving container (4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare stuffing mix as directed on package; set aside. Place chicken in a 13x9 inch baking dish, cover with ham. Mix soup and mustard; spoon over chicken. Top with prepared stuffing. Bake 25 min. or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake and additional 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

Makes 4 servings.

Serving suggestions: Round out the meal by serving this dish with hot steamed broccoli.

Recipe notes> I looked online and this recipe is not still available, but it is really good. If you buy the box of Stove Top Stuffing instead of the can, you won't have directions for 2 cups of stuffing and the box makes 6 cups, I think. Of course, I usually use recipes as more like guidelines, so I make the following changes: I usually use 2 chicken breast and pound them out then cut them in half; I do not like Swiss cheese, so I use slices of Provolone cheese, which I almost always have around for sandwiches; we made this the first time and decided that 1 Tbsp. of Grey Poupon was too much for our tastes, so I only do 1/2 Tbsp. Everything else I leave the same. My picture really does not do it justice!
I really like this recipe and so does Scott. I hope you try it and I hope you LOVE it!

I happened to make this last night, and was looking online for the recipe to post in my blog. Lo and behold, you've done the same thing! The recipe really was yummy, and like you, I changed up a couple of things to go with what I had on hand. Nice blog, thanks for posting and mentioning it wasn't available on the Kraft website anymore.
