WW Chicken Cordon Bleu

This recipe is from the Weight Watchers Website. One of the first meals I ever made my husband from scratch was a very high-calorie version of Chicken Cordon Bleu, and ever since it has been a favorite of ours. Well, when I decided to join WW I knew I had to find a lower point value version. Here it is -- small on points, large on taste!

Chicken Cordon Bleu

4 sprays cooking spray, or enough to coat chicken
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, four 4-oz pieces
3 oz ham, four 3/4 oz slices
3 oz low-fat swiss cheese, four 3/4 oz slices
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup honey mustard (I used egg beaters)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4-inch thickness; remove plastic wrap. Arrange 1 slice of ham and 1 slice of cheese on each chicken breast. Starting from shorter end of hcicken, roll up breast into a tight pinwheel. Tuck in ends. Secure with toothpicks. Place flour, honey mustard and bread crumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Add chicken to flour; turn to coat. Transfer chicken to honey mustard; turn to coat. Place chicken in bread crumbs; turn to coat. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 40 minutes. Remove toothpicks and serve.

WW: 7 points
