I was so impressed with tamaraleigh recipe that I had to try it the next day but I did not have the same ingredients so I improvised. I also wanted to experiment a bit and have a least one topped with Blue Cheeses dressing. I am glad I did! This is a tasty meal and actually it turned out much better then I expected! This is a keeper!

Ingredients

  • 20 oz of boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup of plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon of Basal
  • 1 teaspoon of Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • Sliced Swiss Cheese – enough to top chicken
  • About a tablespoon of Blue Cheese dressing  – enough to top chicken
  • Black Forest Ham thinly sliced – enough to top chicken
  • Parsley – enough to pretty up your chicken
  • Olive oil – enough to coat bottom of of oven proof skillet – I recommend cast iron!

The steps for building this meal are not difficult and don’t have to be to create a great tasting meal.

Steps to goodness! 

  1. Move up the rack in your oven so when you put your skillet in the oven the top of the food will be about 5 or 6″ from the flame of the broiler. Turn on the broiler.
  2. Add Bread Crumbs, Basal, Oregano and Salt to a zip top bag. Mix it up a bit.
  3. Preheat your oven proof skillet to medium high heat with enough oil to just coat the bottom
  4. Put a few pieces of chicken at a time into the bag and shake to coat chicken
  5. Add chicken to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Be sure not to burn the chicken it does have a breaded coating after all.
  6. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of ham
  7. Top each piece of chicken with either of the cheeses.
  8. Put the skilet into oven for a few minutes. You are looking to brown the cheese and toast the ham a bit
  9. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with Parsley
  10. Serve and enjoy you will!
