Low Fat Chicken Cordon Bleu

This is a great low calorie recipe that really feels like you are eating something decadent and full of calories! The recipe below serves 3 but it can easily be adjusted to serve as many as needed. 

Cast of Characters:
3 chicken breasts - flattened with meat mallet
3 wedges Laughing Cow Cheese
6 pieces thinly sliced ham
1 cup breadcrumbs (I used Shake N Bake because it's what I had on hand)

Pour breadcrumbs into shallow dish
Top each chicken breast with 2 slices of ham and 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese. Spread the cheese out slightly and fold edges of ham inward. Next fold each side of the chicken over the ham in a "burrito" like manner.
Set into the pan of breadcrumbs and thoroughly coat while holding chicken sides closed over the ham and cheese.
Once thouroughly coated, secure with a toothpick and place in baking dish. (Or skewer that you have cut down with pliers, whatever works)
Once you get them all coated, cook at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Yummy, ooey, gooey, goodness.
