Points per serving 7
Note: For the biscuits, I used 4 Grand Biscuits cut into 8 pieces and I placed them on the bottom of the pan instead of mixing them into the sauce. I think I may try pizza dough in place of the biscuits next time. Some of the biscuits were still a little dough like.
Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu
2 bonless skinless chicken breasts
2 slices deli ham
2 wedges Laughing Cow Cheese Original Swiss
1 egg white
1/4 c. panko bread crumbs
1/2 c. Fiber One original cereal (pulse in food processor until fine crumbs)
Thaw chicken. Place between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound to about 1/4 inch thick with meat mallet or rolling pin. Place slice of deli ham over each piece of chicken. Spread wedge of cheese on half of each piece of chicken/ham. Roll like a burrito starting with cheese side first so that it's in the middle of the roll. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
Put egg white in bowl. Combine panko with fiber one crumbs in another bowl. Dip the chicken into the egg white and then roll in the bread crumbs, coating entire chicken roll. Place on a cooking sheet which has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Repeat with remaining piece of chicken. Sprinkle remaining bread crumbs on top of the chicken.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Allow to cool a few mins before serving, as cheese inside will be really hot.
If freezing, cook before freezing. Can be reheated in the oven or thawed in the fridge then reheated in the microwave.
