In this chicken cordon bleu recipe, chicken breasts are pounded flat and then wrapped around a filling of ham and cheese. The resulting dish is delicious and easy to make.
You can use any type of chicken you like for this recipe, as long as it’s thin and sliced into cutlets.

2. Hawaiian Smoked Chicken Sandwiches
Hawaiian Smoked Chicken Sandwiches are a great way to add some variety to your meal planning. They are easy to make and can be made ahead of time, making them ideal for weeknight dinners.
You can use either canned or rotisserie chicken for this recipe, but I highly recommend using fresh shredded chicken to get the most flavor.
Getting the chicken cooked properly is also important. I like to use a digital read meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is at 165 degrees.
When serving these sandwiches, I like to pair them with a side of Maui onion-flavored and kettle-cooked potato chips or coleslaw. If you don’t have those, a fresh salad is another good option.

If you have any leftovers, it’s also easy to re-heat them in the oven, microwave, or air fryer for another quick dinner!
If you want to add some variety to your bacon wrapped chicken, you can serve it with a variety of sides. Baked beans or creamy coleslaw go well with it, as do steamed vegetables and fresh greens.
