Cordon Bleu Chicken Nuggets


3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1/2 cup flour

Salt and pepper

1 egg

1/2 cup water

1 cup bread crumbs

5 slices deli ham

5 slices Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice the chicken into about 24 chunks. Slice each chunk in half, hamburger style.

Slice the ham and cheese into squares the same size as the chunks. Sandwich a piece of ham and a piece of cheese between each pair of chicken chunks and secure with a toothpick.

In one bowl mix together the flour, salt and pepper. In another, beat the egg and water. Place the bread crumbs in the third bowl.

Dunk each chunk into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumbs, then place on a greased baking sheet. You can leave the toothpicks in for now.

Spritz all the nuggets with some cooking spay and bake 10 minutes. Then remove the toothpicks, flip the nuggets, and cook for 10 minutes more. Serves 4.
