Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu
So easy and so simple. Chicken stuffed with ham and an artichoke spinach cheese spread. Instead of breading and frying it, I decided to try it on the grill. It turned out great. Everyone is always looking to cut a few calories and grilling was a good choice.
The chicken was tender and slightly smokey since we use smoke chips in the grill all the time. The ham was also slightly smoked so it was well complimented by the grill.
Butterfly chicken breasts
Fill ham slice with cheese spread.
Tuck ham into the chicken breast.
Thread a skewer into the chicken breast to keep the ham and cheese inside.
Grill until done.
I found by filling the ham with the cheese, it did not ooze out like it usually does. It keep the cheese in the chicken and I'm glad it did. It was a great meal.
