Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

This is one of my favorite things to eat in the entire world. You rarely see it on a menu anywhere, which is a shame because it is so simple to make and is packed with so much flavor. 


1 egg
1 Tbs. milk
1/2 Tbs. yellow mustard
salt and pepper
1/4 c. seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 c. Panko
3 chicken breast cutlets, boneless and skinless
6 slices deli ham
6 slices Swiss cheese (sandwich size)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking pan and set aside. Set up a dredging station. Whisk the egg, milk and mustard together with a fork in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, mix the breadcrumbs and Panko. Season each inside of the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Place one slice of ham and cheese in the middle, and roll the chicken up and secure with a wooden toothpick (with no plastic etc. since it will be baking in the oven). Dunk and cover each rolled up piece of chicken in the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumb mixture. Place in the prepared pan, and spray the tops with non stick cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, and let sit 5 minutes before serving. Remove the toothpicks, and cut into slices. 

 (Makes 3 servings, 2 cutlets per serving, 10 points per serving.)
