Super Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Image
This is one of those recipes that looks like you slaved all day to make it and makes a beautiful presentation on the plate. It is one of the easiest elegant foods there are to make. Give it a try and tell me what you think. I wanted to keep it very simple so I served it with pierogies and salad.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast 4 slices Swiss or Provolone cheese 4 thin sliced smoked ham 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 egg; beaten salt pepper 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs (make your own) 4 tablespoons butter
Mornay Sauce
Print Recipe Pound chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness. It is not going to look pretty. I had problems with this part because my meat pounder is very small. The next thing on my list is a larger one!

Sprinkle each piece on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on each breast.(I used two each because it was a very large breast.)


Roll up each breast using toothpicks to secure if necessary. (This is the hardest part. Don…

Easy Beef Stroganoff

There is nothing I like more than hearty meals that are easy to make and taste great. This is one of those recipes. Let me also add I do NOT like mushrooms. Or more I do not like to eat a mushroom. They actually have a great flavor, I just cannot get myself to bite into one no matter how hard I try. So an added benefit of this recipe are the mushrooms were big enough for me to push aside and just enjoy the rest while still getting all the flavor.

Easy Beef Stroganoff:

1 lb. steak, cut into strips (the better the cut the more tender your strips will be)

1 medium onion, chopped

2 Tablespoon butter

8 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper (or ground if you don't have fresh)

1 tub PHILADELPHIA Original Cooking Creme

1/2 cup beef broth

3 cups hot cooked egg noodles

Cook steak in skillet 5-8 minutes until done. Use a small amount of oil if your meat is lean. Remove from pan and drain.

Melt butter in the skillet. Add onions and cook on medium heat …

Frito Pie Mexican Style

Easy and low fat. I didn't actually add up the fat but everything I used was reduced fat or low fat. So I'm going to call this healthy. Of course you don't need to use the lowfat foods but I have used them for so long I don't notice a taste difference.

Living in Texas I have heard so much about Frito Pie. I'm sure the original version which is just chili and cheese over Frito's is fantastic but I love refried beans so I came up with this version. It took me less than a half hour to make from beginning until I could eat. It did make more than I wanted so next time I will cut the recipe in half. But this one will give me lunch tomorrow.

Ingredients: 2 cups Frito corn chips - Reduced salt if desired. I recommend this because it is pretty salty. 1 can refried beans - reduced fat 1/4 cup salsa 1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey 1 tablespoon taco seasoning 1/4 cup water 1 1/2 cups light cheddar cheese shredded lettuce diced tomato diced onion jalapeno slices Ligh…
