Don’t be fooled by its fancy name—this 5-ingredient dinner couldn’t be easier! Tender chicken breasts get stuffed with chopped ham and shredded Swiss cheese for an unfussy, delicious twist on traditional chicken cordon bleu.

Ingredients

4
large boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lb)
1/2
cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 oz)
1/2
cup finely chopped ham (2 oz)
3
tablespoons butter, melted
3/4
cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
