It's easy to make this hasselback chicken, and all your friends will be impressed! I originally shared this recipe on my blog The Weary Chef, where you can find lots of other quick dinner recipes too. Let me show you how to make this one!

Step 1: Prep Chicken

Slice deep slits in a chicken breast, and season all over with seasoned salt. Cut up ham and cheese to fit in slits.

Step 2: Stuff Chicken

Slide the ham and cheese in the slits, then bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes (depends on size of chicken breast), until cooked through.

Step 3: Dig In!

    An absolutely wonderful Diabetics' Delight!!! (I will melt a Philly Cream/Sharp Cheddar drizzle for the broccoli) Thoreau would have approved the simple elegance. :-)

    Hi! I made the instructions more detailed here. You bake it at 350F for 20-30 minutes (depending on how thick the chicken is).
