Trying to determine what to make while home in Michigan, my sister and I settled on what she called “Lazy Chicken Cordon Bleu.” I really wanted to cook, but demanded food immediately. So I liked that term a lot.

Throwing chicken in the oven is an easy task, yet I wanted to add a little something to the poultry so I settled on a normal jar of Italian seasoning, covering both sides. While I waited for it to cook in the oven, I gulped down a beverage and retreated to the basement refrigerator for another. We then found a random bag of potato rounds in the freezer and tossed those in the oven as well.

I am unsure of what my favorite frozen potatoes may be, as I certainly do not mind French fries, tater tots and potato rounds. A nice ole selection of waffle fries do the trick every time, yet I adore the five-pound bag of tater tots for less than $5 at the local Super Target. Dip those babies in barbecue sauce and I got myself a cheap thrill.

Back to the task at hand, my sister plopped some ham and cheese onto the stove and placed the cover on top, letting it melt together nicely. When it blended and the chicken was cooked, we placed the ham and cheese on top and quickly obliterated the meal. For so little prep work, the chicken served as a tasty dish and the ham added a slight crunch (although not severe). However, I always will prefer cooking the ham and cheese inside the chicken.

What You’ll Need

As Many Chicken Breasts Required

Deli Ham

Swiss Cheese

Italian Seasoning

The Steps

1)      Spray pan with cooking spray and set oven to 350.

2)      Sprinkle Italian seasoning on chicken, both on top and on the bottom.

3)      Bake chicken for about 30 minutes.

4)      On the stove, spray a pan with cooking spray.

5)      Chop deli ham and place cheese on top. Place in the pan and cover for a couple of minutes, letting the cheese melt into the ham.

6)      When both are done, simply place the ham/cheese on top of the chicken.
