Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu

I love me a good chicken recipe. There are a select few that I use on repeat - because I know they will turn out and satisfy the family. But we all know you can't stick to the same few recipes forever. The other day I asked my husband something he was craving - and he quickly replied chicken cordon bleu. My first thought was, "Well, that sure isn't the healthiest thing in the world." But boy was I wrong! This recipe from skinnytaste (one of my favorite healthy websites) gives us a great new way to cook chicken and has loads of flavor rolled into it.
