Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu

Due to some beautiful weekend weather and our pending nuptials, MBH and I decided to do some grilling.  MBH found a stuffed chicken cordon bleu recipe in a cookbook I got her.  Luckily I had some chicken breasts in the freezer so we defrosted those and headed to Publix to get some sliced ham. 

Prep:
MBH flattened the chicken and spread Laughing Cow Swiss cheese on the chicken pieces.  She then placed some sliced ham on top of the cheese.  She then rolled the chicken and used toothpicks to hold them together.


MBH doin work!
 

Ready for the grill.
  Cooking:
I put the chicken on the egg for direct cooking at 400º.  I let them cook for 10 minutes then flipped them and cooked for another 10 minutes.

Done.

Delicious looking cross section.
 Notes:
This was a very simple, tasty, and healthy cook.  There weren't any surprises here except for how juicy the chicken was.  You really cannot beat chicken off of the egg.
