Mini Chicken with the blues

This is my take on chicken cordon bleu. It is faster because you use chicken tenders so dinner is ready in no time. You can have a couple because they are small and made with turkey ham! Serve with cranberries, roasted sweet potatoes and biscuits for a healthy meal! Enjoy!


4 thawed chicken tenders

4- 2 inch strips turkey ham

4- 2 inch slices of Colby cheese

Italian bread crumbs

salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder

1. Tenderize your chicken by using a kitchen mallet or rolling pin to make your chicken thinner. Salt and pepper each side.

2. Get your toothpicks ready and pour about a cup of bread crumbs into a bowl.

3. For each tender put a piece of ham in the center of your chicken. Then top with a cheese slice. Roll it up and secure it with a toothpick. Carefully roll in bread crumbs and put on a greased baking sheet.

4. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with veggies and a biscuit and you are set!

* This recipe serves two adults. I figure about 2 per person. So make as many as you want! For kiddies I just cut up a chicken strip into nugget size and rolled them in bread crumbs!Bake them at the same temp with your food. Annie loved her chicken nuggets!
