Cordon Blue (lower sodium)

I was able to knock down the salt in this by 1/3 and keep the flavor.  This is chicken keep an eye on it or it will get dry.  I use my digital meat tester a lot.  The target temp is 165 for chicken.

2 chicken breast or de-boned chicken thighs
2 slices of Swiss cheese
2 slices ham
1/2 cop panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons dash salt free seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 stick butter

Season bread crumbs have 18% of a days sodium
Even unseasoned breadcrumbs have 10% sodium
panko has 4%
And if you look you can get 2% sodium Swiss cheese

Mix 1 tablespoon of dash seasoning, garlic powder, with breadcrumbs set aside

Cut slit length wise in chicken
Sprinkle inside and out with 1 tablespoon of dash seasoning.

Cut ham and cheese into strips that fit into the chicken

Insert ham and cheese strips

Place chicken into a non-stick banking pan

Melt butter and pour on chicken

Coat with breadcrumb mixture

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the 165 degrees
