Simple Mini Chicken Cordon Bleu

In a hurry for a quick meal, yet easy and delicious? Try this cheat recipe for chicken cordon bleu. I tried making them mini-sized tonight. It worked so well, I don't think I will ever go back! They were the perfect serving size for kids.
4 large chicken breasts, pounded flat
8 strips of ham
8 chunks of swiss cheese
Salt and Pepper
Garlic Salt
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup sour cream

Pound your chicken breasts flat. Cut each into two rectangles and place a peace of ham and a chunk of cheese inside each one. Roll, cinnamon roll style and inset a toothpick to hold it all in place. Dredge in flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brown in olive oil until browned on all sides. Remove toothpick. Place chicken in a 9x13 pan. Leaving the drippings in the frying pan, saute the mushrooms and then add the cream of mushroom soup, broth and sour cream. Cook until mixture comes to a low boil. Pour over chicken and back at 350 for 20 minutes. Serve.
