2 tablespoons margarine
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
.87-oz chicken gravy mix
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. dry white wine or apple juice
1/4 c. deli ham, chopped
1/4 c. shredded Swiss cheese
In a skilled over medium heat, melt margarine. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until browned; drain. In a bowl, combine gravy mix, water, wine or juice and ham. Pour gravy mixture over chicken in skillet. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken to a broiler pan; sprinkle with cheese and broil until cheese is melted. Serve chicken with gravy mixture. Serves 4-6.
MY KITCHEN NOTES: I used butter instead of margarine. I also used a sweet red wine instead of the dry white. This recipe would be great to use the leftover holiday ham for sure. I've always loved Chicken Cordon Bleu but have never made it from scratch because I thought it was too much work. Just a month ago we had some premade and I was making a comment on how it is too much work to make. This recipe solved my problem because it is SO EASY to make and SO TASTY! Love it and will make it again and again.
