|Skinny chicken cordon bleu|
I have said it before and I’ll say it again. Rolled chicken looks fancy, it sounds fancy, but it’s NOT fancy! It is SO EASY to make rolled chicken. Bonus points for the fact that it’s healthy AND the rolling keeps all the juices inside and it’s always so, so moist.
This skinny chicken cordon bleu has the delicious flavors of swiss cheese, salty ham, and is of course breaded and baked.
I served mine with asparagus and no starch, and it was a perfectly filling, healthy meal that even my kids gobbled up.
