Think of this dish as a play on chicken cordon bleu, one that’s much easier to prepare. Instead of splitting and stuffing chicken breasts with ham and cheese, we broil chicken cutlets until done and simply top them with ham, cheese, and a touch of blackberry jam.
4 (4-oz.) chicken breast cutlets 3/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 2 teaspoons canola oil 1/4 cup blackberry jam 2 ounces thinly sliced reduced-sodium deli ham 1/4 cup chopped scallions 2 ounces reduced-fat Havarti cheese, thinly sliced
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.
