# chicken # Chicken Cordon Bleu

Crockpot Monday: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Brrrrr! I was not ready for the cold and the snow this year! I hope the weather is treating you well wherever you are. For us, not only is it cold, but it's also nearly Christmas break! Since the boys aren't here as often as I'd like, I like to make all of their favorites and a few of mine over the holiday break. Starting with this treat...

Chicken Cordon Bleu:
4 chicken breast halves, pounded thin
4-8 slices of ham
4-8 slices of Swiss cheese
Can of your favorite cream-of-something soup *
2 Tablespoons low fat milk

Instead of soup, you could create your own with:

1 Tablespoon butter
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Spray crockpot with cooking spray.

Pound chicken breasts flat (put them in a plastic zipper bag before you pound so chicken juice doesn't spray everywhere).

Put a slice of the ham and a slice of the swiss cheese on the chicken breast and roll it up. Put it into the crockpot, seam side down. If desired, top with another piece of ham and cheese. Continue with the other pieces.
If you are making your own "special soup," make a roux on the stovetop with the butter and flour, and whisk in the broth, milk, and spices. Pour on top of the chicken or open can of cream-of soup. Pour into crockpot. Put the 2T of low fat milk into your empty can and swirl it around to get the remaining soup. Pour that in, too.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5.
