“Based on the flavors of a classic cordon bleu, this is a simple weeknight meal that can be enjoyed just about any night of the week. If you want to prepare it a little closer to the classic, you can butterfly and flatten the chicken breasts and roll the cheese and prosciutto in them before breading or pan-frying and finishing them off in the oven.”
