This was a great recipe. Instead of pounding the chicken flat and rolling it, I made a pocket in the chicken breast and stuffed the ham and cheese stick inside. I cut the cheese sticks in half and rolled them up in the ham. This kept the cheese from oozing out. I sealed the pocket closed with toothpicks and then rolled the chicken in the butter and bread crumbs. Very easy!

This recipe would've been great if it had a different cheese. I made it tonight using the cheese sticks and they didn't melt and it was in the oven about 50 minutes at about 375 degrees. My husband requested chicken cordon bleu but this isn't what he expected. It isn't bad, it just isn't good. Next time I will be using either sliced cheese or shreded and I won't be pounding the chicken, it's easier to just make a pocket and stuff everything in it. A lot of effort that didn't pay off.

These were great. I made the recipe "Chicken Cordon Blue II" (also from this site) the night before and had some sauce left over, so I made this recipe for the chicken the second day and served it with that sauce to do a comparison. To me the sauce is the best part so I would probably recommend that recipe over this one. However, I think I enjoyed the chicken more with this recipe because it was so juicy. So if you make this recipe, try making the sauce from the other recipe to go along with it. You'll love it.

Good recipe simple directions to follow. My only advice is to incorporate a sauce otherwise its a little on the dry side.

Family loved this chicken dish. I did not pound out the chicken breasts. I had 4 large chicken breasts about 1/2 pound each and I was able to slice an opening down the middle of each breast to put the rolled up ham slices and cheese. I used about 3 tooth picks per chicken breast. My bread crumbs were not seasoned so I added 1 tsp Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I also went ahead and decided to add my own sauce since one review said it was a little dry alone. I mixed one can cream of chicken soup(98% fat free) with about 1/4-1/2 cup white cooking wine and poured it over the chicken before baking. I cooked it for about an hour or until the soup mixture got bubbly.

It was very easy to make, and tasted so good!! It is hard to get the toothpicks out, so I suggest taking them out before serving the dish so that your guests don't have to go digging. Other than that, it was excellent!

I LOVED this recipe! I will be cooking this again to entertain. I also fried the chicken in butter then baked it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Very tender and appealing to the eye as well.

I really like this recipe. It's definitely messy, but its quick and very tasty. I used 2 slices of virginia ham and 1 slice of swiss, and rolled up the chicken and secured with a bunch of toothpicks and the cheese did not run out at all. I will make this again!
