I have been participating in the Hellmann’s Chicken Challenge over the past couple of months and this time I think I hit the jackpot! I love Chicken Cordon Bleu and I am always looking for a shortcut. While I love the traditional way of baking Chicken Cordon Bleu, this alternative is wonderful for the busy mom who needs something simple and fast. Here is a short video of me getting the chicken ready for the oven so you can see just how fast it actually is!
All you have to do to finish it is to top it with a slice of ham and add cheese! I thought we had some Swiss cheese in our fridge, but my husband ate it all the night before and I didn’t have time to run to the store so I used what we had on hand. While it isn’t as pretty as it could be here is how it turned out:
EASY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU
A classic recipe made simple.

I have been enjoying changing up my boring chicken routine these past few months. I will be referring back to Hellmann’s a lot to spice up our dinners.
