Chicken Cordon Bleu

from Connie

6 chicken breasts, cut in half
12 thin slices of ham
12 slices mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup melted butter
2 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1 can cream of chicken soup
4 oz can mushrooms, undrained -keep the juice for the sauce
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sour cream

Combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese on plate or in a pie dish. Put ham and mozzarella cheese inside chicken. Dip in melted butter and roll in crumb mixture. Use toothpicks to hold it all together. Place in greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

For sauce, heat first 3 ingredients, slightly. Add sour cream. Warm carefully. Pour over chicken breasts before serving.

Note: This is an easy recipe and turns out great every time. It isn't super fancy, but just right for my taste. I don't like tedious recipes.
I used to make this recipe for Brent and I when we were first married. It is hard to cook for just 2 people. I halved this recipe and then used the leftover cream of chicken soup for another recipe in a day or two. It is a very versatile recipe ingredient.
