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.
