Chicken Cordon Bleu

Last week I got the cookbook 2009 Taste of Home Annual Recipes in the mail and this was calling my name. I was excited to see the chicken coated in cornflakes as opposed to breadcrumbs...making it gluten-free! I will admit I need some practice rolling my chicken so it looks pretty, but it did taste good :-)!
(I just used 3 chicken breasts and used the corresponding amount of ham and cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 c. milk, but the whole 2 c. cereal and all the spices)

Ingredients:
-8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
-8 thin slices deli ham
-3 slices Swiss cheese (I used 2% milk slices)
-2 eggs
-1 c. milk
-2 c. crushed cornflakes
-1/2 t. garlic powder
-1/2 t. salt
-1/2 t. pepper

Directions:
-Flatten chicken to 1/4 in. thickness. Top each with a slice of ham and cheese. Roll up and tuck in ends; secure with toothpicks.
-In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk. In another bowl, comgine cornflakes and seasonings. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then roll in crumbs.
-Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 min. or until the chicken juices run clear. Discard toothpicks beofre serving.

Yum Marci! I'm still trying to decide about the Freezer Meal group. Thinking hard about it!

I love Chicken Cordon Bleu but I've never tried to make it because it seems too hard - but this has inspired me. Did you take that photo? It looks so professional!

It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be! And I did take the picture (and didn't think it turned out great), so thanks for the compliment!
