Purpose of this blog is for me to try out recipes from my Weight Watchers cookbooks and hopefully I can find some really yummy, low point recipes to share. But this site is NOT an official Weight Watchers site.

Chicken Fauxdon Bleu -8pts

I love Chicken Cordon Bleu, it is so many points, I knew I needed to find a way to cook this cheaper. I think I have done just that.
Chicken Fauxdon Bleu
(8 points per serving, makes 2 servings)

  • 8 oz chicken breast, cut into two 4oz pieces (cut it as wide as possible)
  • 2 servings of ham (check your serving size and calories on your ham, as long as your serving is below 50 calories per serving you should be okay)
  • Swiss cheese, one serving- cut into two pieces (check your serving size)-if you don't have Swiss you can you any cheese you like, we used Colby/Monterey Jack (because that is what we had)
  • seasoned breading from the "Flaky Chicken-6pts" recipe, be skimpy on the seasonings (maybe leave them out)-2oz RITZ crackers crumbled, 1 tsp Parm, 1/4 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/4 c plain non-fat yogurt.

directions: Take your 4oz pieces of chicken, butterfly them (slice them long ways through the most middle as possible spot, DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH). In that open cut place the 1/2 serving of cheese, on top of the cheese place the ham. Close the chicken the best as possible, stab with toothpicks to hold the best it can. Roll in the non-fat yogurt, then int he crackers/seasonings mix, place on sprayed baking tray. Bake  for 20 minutes at 375 (or until done). One chicken is one serving.


  1. I don't know if you will re-check the comment that you asked a question about the lemon cookies. Here's what I replied:

    I'm not sure (I'll email my cousin and ask her, too). I bet it would though. I've seen a lot of different cake type recipes out there. If you give it a try let me know how it turns out! :)

  2. Love cordon bleu and that recipes sound nammmmyyyy. Thanks.
