Before leaving for Key West this past weekend, I was on a cooking streak. Maybe it was the knowledge that I wouldn’t have to cook all weekend that gave me the extra creativity, but I was all about the quick dinner recipes, especially this Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe featuring a Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter that I picked up at Walmart!

Creating mouth-watering meals for your family on a busy weekday night can be a daunting task, I know! I love food, I love to eat, and I love sitting down to a dinner that I prepared from scratch and knowing that it’s every bit as good as a meal I could have paid $20 for at a restaurant. The problem is that I don’t especially love cooking…or the clean up! Quick dinner recipes that use only one or two pans and don’t take a long time to cook are my favorites!

I love chicken cordon bleu, but it can be a total pain to prepare after a long day at work. Instead of following step by step instructions from the classic recipes, I came up with my own quick dinner recipe  version using a Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter…in one pan!

The Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter comes in a few different flavors: Lemon Pepper, Teriyaki, Savory Butter and Olive Oil, Italian Herb and Garlic and Herb, and retail in most places for under $3 a package, with 6 packets each. Our Walmart only had two in stock so I grabbed the Garlic and Herb variety. You can read about my shopping trip in this Google+ album!

I liked this Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter so much that I think I am going to try it again for other quick dinner recipes! It tastes great with chicken and also potatoes, so I wonder what else I can use it for? Maybe pork chops or a steak?

Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

1 package Guyere cheese, shredded thinly

Directions

Pound your chicken breasts until they are about 1 inch in thickness.

I prefer to spend a little extra on really good cheese because the wrong flavors can totally ruin a dish. I buy a block of Guyere and shred it myself. To make this dish even less expensive and less hassle, you can buy shredded Swiss cheese, or just use a slice of Swiss!

Place a slice of prosciutto on top of your chicken breast, then top with shredded Guyere cheese and fold in half.

You can secure it with a toothpick or just be extra careful when handling it so that the goodies don’t fall out!

Place one square of Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter in a pan over medium heat and let simmer until it breaks down.

This is the easiest part: set your chicken breast in the pan and let it saute for about 5 minutes, then flip onto the other side.

I covered my pan with a lid so that the inside of the chicken cordon bleu cooked evenly as well. You can open the chicken and check for done-ness inside.

    This looks fantastic Jenn – I’m salivating on my keyboard! I’ve seen these in the store but haven’t yet bought them, I think I’m going to put them on my grocery list for this week.

    Wish we had those Saute Express thingies here in Canada. They sound wonderful, as does your chicken! Thank you for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.
