I'm a fan of chicken cordon bleu. It's somewhat fancy, and pretty tasty. But it can be rather time consuming. And I'm not very good at rolling my chicken up. This method of butterflying them down the middle, giving you one large flat piece was nice. Instead of rolling it up though, you just lay the ham and cheese on it, and fold the chicken back over it. I had NO cheese leaking out, which was fantastic! The cheese stayed where it should have been.
I used just a few toothpicks to secure everything. The lemon slices on top though were perfect. So perfect. They gave the chicken such a nice flavor, and I think I liked this over the breaded chicken version that you normally see!
