Chicken Cordon Bleu For My Funny Valentine
4 (6- ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 ½ pounds)
6 ounces sliced Swiss cheese (4 to 6 slices)
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or Black Forest ham
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons mayonaise
Using the smooth side of a meat mallet, pound out to a 1/4-inch thickness.
Mix mayonaise and dijon mustard and spread over chicken breasts.
Divide cheese evenly between 4 pieces of chicken.
Tuck in any cheese or prosciutto ham that extends over the edges.
Secure chicken pieces together using toothpicks along the edges to seal the edges.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Dip a chicken bundle in flour, shaking off any excess.
Repeat process with remaining chicken bundles.
Turn chicken and cook 2 minutes more
Transfer to prepared baking sheet and place in oven.

Remove toothpicks and serve immediately.
