Chicken Cordon Bleu

Once again I am finding ways to use up leftover ham. I made these last week...

Chicken Cordon Bleu
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
Swiss cheese, slices or shredded (whatever you have on hand)
Cooked ham, slices or diced pieces
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Coat baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with kosher salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast. Roll up each breast and place in baking dish with seam side down. (can secure with a toothpick if you need to). Brush each piece of chicken with melted butter then sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from oven, and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Serve and enjoy!
