Easy Baked Chicken Cordon Blue

Easy Baked Chicken Cordon Blue
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
Salt and pepper to taste
4 slices deli ham
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 T. Dijon mustard
2 cups coarse fresh breadcrumbs 

3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

Trim chicken and pound between two sheets of plastic wrap to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Arrange chicken on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lay a slice of ham over each breast, tucking and folding to just cover the surface.

In a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise and mustard. Divide the mixture evenly among the chicken breasts and spread to cover the entire surface of each. Toss together the breadcrumbs and Swiss cheese. Mound on top of each breast, covering completely and patting down lightly. 

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and breadcrumb topping is nicely browned.
