I will start by saying that I got the idea from this blog one night while looking for a nice spin on regular chicken cordon bleu. I am constantly asked to make these, they are just so much fun to eat and really not that difficult to make!

|8 chicken tenderloins||2 eggs||1 cup all-purpose flour||1 cup Panko crumbs|
|2 Swiss cheese slices||2 tablespoons water||1/2 teaspoon garlic powder||1/2 teaspoon paprika|
|2-3 slices ham
|1/2 teaspoon salt||1/2 teaspoon salt|
|8 wooden toothpicks||1/4 teaspoon pepper|
(for topping and dipping)

|2) Prepare each mixture in separate bowls.
Egg Wash: Whisk eggs and water together in bowl.
Flour Mixture: Combine flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper in bowl.
Panko Crumb Mixture: Combine Panko crumbs, paprika, and salt in bowl.
|3) Wash and trim chicken if necessary. Place more presentable side down on work surface. Use flat side of meat tenderizer to flatten chicken.|
|4) Place ham slices on chicken to size.|
|5) Place small squares of Swiss cheese on top of the ham, preferably on the wider end of chicken.|
|6) Put a drop of honey mustard on top of the cheese.|
|7) Roll up the chicken from the wider end to the narrow end. Secure with toothpicks. Repeat for each tenderloin.|
|8) Coat chicken in egg wash, then transfer to flour mixture to coat, and finally coat with Panko crumb mixture.|
|9) Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Spray the tops of chicken lightly with cooking spray.|
|10) Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crumbs turn golden brown and chicken is fully cooked. Cheese will also begin to “ooze” at this point.|
|11) Serve with honey mustard for a dipping sauce.|
