Buying thin sliced chicken breasts make these chicken cordon bleu roll-ups an easy weeknight dinner – in the time it takes to preheat the oven you can have them assembled and ready to go with minimal prep. They’re filled with ham and melty gruyere cheese and topped with crispy bread crumbs.
I used chicken breasts that were already sliced thin for this recipe, which cuts out some prep time. If you are using regular chicken breasts, just slice each in half. You may need to use a mallet or rolling pin to pound out the chicken so it’s thin enough to easily roll-up. Depending on the thickness and size of the chicken you use, cooking time may be shorter or longer – always use a meat thermometer to check doneness!
