Menu Plan Monday for September 22

This week Laura at I’m An Organizing Junkie is hosting a Family Favorites Edition of Menu Plan Monday. Everyone has to post at least one recipe or link of a “family favorite.” It’s sure to be the week of all weeks to go by and browse the menus. I can’t wait to check it out.

At first I was just going to post a link to the chicken & rice recipe I always use, but when I mentioned to my husband that it was family favorites week, he said, “Let’s have chicken cordon blue.” And I just happenened to take a couple of pictures the last time I made it, so all in all, it seemed like the perfect week to post it.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Monday – still moving in, eat out
Tuesday – One Dish Chicken & Rice Bake
Wednesday – Chicken Cordon Bleu (recipe below)
Thursday – leftovers
Friday – club sandwiches
Saturday – Chili
Sunday – leftovers

Recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu:

2-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
thin sliced ham (2-5 pieces per chicken breast)
swiss cheese (sometimes I use American too) (1-2 slices per chicken breast)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet or casserole dish with cooking spray. Place meat and cheese on top of chicken. Fold chicken breast over and stick 3-5 toothpicks in the chicken to secure it shut. Top each chicken breast with your choice of season. I use a little pepper and/or Morton’s Nature’s Season, and sometimes I sprinkle a little Shake n’ Bake seasoning on top as well. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until done.
Optional: 5 minutes before chicken is done, take out, and place half a piece of cheese on each chicken breast, or sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. Replace in oven and finish baking.
