Expert Tips

Stuff 1 to 2 thin slices of deli ham in the pocket of each chicken breast, and you’ll have Havarti chicken cordon bleu, but without the typical breading.

Instead of a salad, serve the chicken with steamed vegetables such as broccoli or green beans.

English cucumbers, also known as hothouse cucumbers, don’t have the waxy coating of regular cucumbers (you’ll find them wrapped in plastic), and while they aren’t completely seedless, they have fewer and smaller seeds than other varieties.
