Audra Nasser of Tampa's Dinner Done has a spicy twist on an old favorite... South of the Border Chicken Cordon Bleu.

We'll Need:

  • 4 butterfly-cut chicken breasts
  • 8 thin slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 8 thin slices chorizo sausage (get real name of this as there are different types!)
  • 12 ounces plain yogurt
  • 1 chipotle pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs

To Prepare:

Preheat oven to 350F. 

With a blender puree the chipotle pepper, salt and yogurt. Pour into a shallow bowl and set aside.

Now let's stuff each chicken breast with 2 slices of cheese and 2 slices of chorizo.  Then dredge the chicken through the chipotle yogurt sauce and then through the panko breadcrumbs for a crispy crust.

Lay chicken in a greased baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 45-60 minutes until the chicken is cooked throughout.

And there you have it ... Spicy and full of flavor, South of the Border Cordon Bleu.
