Tried and True: Malibu Chicken

This is one of my family's favorite meals! I forget how good it is and most definitely deserves a re post!  It is super quick, easy and oh so delicious!! It is  I made it for my parent's and sister when they came to visit and they loved it.  My sister was HOOKED and immediately wanted the recipe.  I told her it was a difficult one ....HA HA!! 
Malibu Chicken
chicken tenders
ham lunch meat
Swiss cheese
Cook chicken tenders according to package directions
Place a slice of ham on each piece of chicken.
Place piece of Swiss cheese on top of the ham.
Place back into oven only long enough for the cheese to melt on the top.
We serve it with mustard dipping sauce.
Mustard Dipping Sauce
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
1 Tbs. Mustard
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
Mix until well blended. Adjust the amount of each ingredient to fit your family's taste.

*My kids who dislike mustard love this sauce..(Go figure??)
*Sometimes I add 1 tsp. of Balsamic Vinegar to the mustard sauce.
*I have not tried it yet but, I would think this would be equally good with unbreaded chicken tenders.

  3. My grandson makes our Honey Mustard Sauce for nuggets night using yellow mustard, mayonnaise and taste....He is always so proud he is the sauce maker. Your recipe looks very good.

  4. Yum! I want to try this with unbreaded chicken. Almost like an easy version of cordon bleu. Very nice to make chicken a bit fancier in an easy way, thanks!

  5. An easy way to enjoy chicken cordon bleu!!! Gotta love it.

    Thanks for sharing,

  6. Another recipe copied and added to my file. I just saw a recipe on the bag of chicken tenders using salsa and crushed chips. It was the first time I've ever thought of using the frozen chicken for anything than a quick snack for the kids. Can't wait to try this one.Thanks!

  7. Oh yeah, who wouldn't like that! Sounds quick and easy and delicious. :-)
