Chicken Cordon Bleu in Pastry


I've been making this recipe for a couple years now, and it's always a hit. Tonight was the first time I've given it to my son, and he ate it up! I've made this a few times whenever I've had company over, and everyone's always loved it. It's easy, yet looks like it takes much more time than it actually does. If you do make this for company, you're not gonna have to spend an hour in the kitchen getting dinner ready instead of hanging out with your guests. Now, I personally LOVE Chive and Onion cream cheese, so I slather on a bit more than the recipe calls for for my particular piece, but other than that, I don't make any changes. I absolutely recommend trying this. It's so good, and so easy. There is a bit of prep involved, but it's maybe 10 minutes...not bad at all. I'm telling you, you're gonna love this...try it!

Source: Taste of Home

Ingredients

 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
8 thin slices deli ham
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
4 slices Swiss cheese

Directions

Heat oven to 375. On an un-greased baking sheet, separate dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese lengthwise down the center of each rectangle. Place 2 pieces of ham widthwise over each dough rectangle. Arrange chicken in center of each rectangle. Wrap ham around chicken. At each long end, pinch dough together around chicken, forming points.

Bake at for 15-20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the chicken reads 170°. Top with slice of Swiss cheese and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
