    alligirl's Note:

    EASY! I found a recipe (or idea) from Paula Deen, and switched up a few things to suit myself. It is much simpler than original cordon bleu and the flavor is GREAT! I use country (salty) ham, as that is what I prefer...you may substitute your favorite deli ham, of course....This is great for company and pretty quick to throw together...so tasty, and they'll think you worked for hours!

      So easy and had a great flavor! Both my DSs ate this all! The only change I made was to use shredded cheese instead of sliced. Will use this breading recipe often, it has a great flavor. Made for ZWT8.

      Very good! We really enjoyed it. I will be making again. A quick and easy dinner. The breading is fabulous. Just a word of caution, because of the parmesan cheese in the breading, it has a tendency to brown quickly in the skillet. Watch your heat! I used very thick chicken breasts which required additional baking time. I didn't bother to pound them flat, call me lazy :^P /
