Serves 4 (serving size: 1 cutlet)

This recipe is a play on chicken cordon bleu that's far easier to prepare. Instead of stuffing chicken breasts with ham and cheese, we broil cutlets until done and simply top them with ham, cheese, and a touch of jam. We also tested the dish with cheddar, which you could use in a pinch, but the nutty, tangy flavor of Havarti makes it feel more special.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high with oven rack 6 inches from heat.

Step 2

Sprinkle chicken with pepper and salt. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Add chicken, and cook until done, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Top evenly with jam, ham, scallions, and cheese. Transfer skillet to oven; broil until cheese browns, 2 to 3 minutes.
