Freezer Friendly Friday-Chicken Cordon Bleu

Six months ago, I really started getting into freezer cooking.  Many people have many names for such an activity:  once-a-month cooking, OAMC, batch cooking, make 2 freeze 1...the list goes on.  Whatever it is, I enjoy it; since it saves my family tons of time and money.  I don't have to worry about what's for dinner.  Everything is already assembled, in the freezer, in a dish, ready to be baked, crock potted, microwaved, grilled, whatever!  Easy peasy!  I'd like to start a series called Freezer Friendly Friday.  Each Friday, I'll post a freezer friendly meal that you can enjoy now or later!  Feel free to leave a comment with YOUR favorite freezer meal or a link to your blog with a freezer meal featured!  This week I have picked...

Chicken Cordon Bleu

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1/3 c. shredded swiss cheese
1 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c. chopped ham
2 T. butter, melted

Put chicken into an 8x8 pan.  (Make sure you pan is able to be frozen as well as baked.)  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Mix cheeses and spread onto chicken evenly.  Sprinkle with chopped ham.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs.  Drizzle with butter.  Cover, label, and freeze. 

To serve:  Thaw completly (in the fridge overnight).  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165.
