Chicken Cordon Bleu from Progresso® Recipe

  • 4 (5 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (9 ounce) pouch Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy roasted garlic with chicken stock cooking sauce
  • 1 cup finely shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • 4 very thin slices deli ham
  • Cooked pasta or rice (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook chicken in butter about 8 minutes, until browned, turning once. Add cooking sauce to skillet; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 5 minutes; stirring occasionally or until until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest parts are cut (at least 165 degrees F).
  3. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese until melted. Arrange ham slices on top of chicken; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover. Remove from heat; let stand 2 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with pasta. Sprinkle with parsley.
