Mmmmm Brains...I mean Bacon (Chicken Cordon Bacon Bleu)

Wesaw the end of Season 3 of The WalkingDead this past weekend and I think that the one thing I would miss themost, after the fall of humanity to the Zombie Apocalypse would be Bacon.  We’re all worried about the possible BaconShortage threatening our supply, but are we concerned enough for a possiblelack of bacon during the rise of the zombies? Maybe that is what the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse are supposed tobring with the locusts and plagues…. a bacon famine.  The horror! (Although, if I were a zombie, I’dcurious about zombie pig bacon…yes, I know, I’m a sick individual)

If you should happen to diebefore the dreaded Zombie Apocalypse, would you go out in style?  Delicious Bacon style??  How about a Bacon Coffin? 

Thisrecipe has nothing to do with Zombies, and everything to do with the fact thatI had a lot of leftover ham from Easter.

 Chicken Cordon Bacon Bleu
4 small-medium sized Chicken Breasts (the breasts I used were too large - how often can a person say that?)
1/2 lb of baked ham (you can use 2-3 slices of deli ham, or baked ham leftovers from a holiday dinner)
4 slices of swiss cheese
8 slices of bacon, cooked
1 cup seasoned Panko breadcrumbs

Cook your bacon.  Any method, any way.  Drain bacon on a paper towel.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Slice each chicken breast in half, horizontally.  Dredge 1/2 of a chicken breast half in Panko breadcrumbs, and place on a cookie sheet.  Top the breast half with ham, swiss, then 2 bacon slices.  Dredge other chicken breast half thru Panko breadcrumbs, and place on top of Bacon.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until Chicken is cooked through.
