Chicken Ham & Cheese

I have fond memories of my childhood, enjoying ham and cheese sandwiches, so this combination holds a special place in my heart for its nostalgic and delightful flavors. It also pairs harmoniously with chicken marinated in honey mustard. This is a straightforward and speedy dinner option that's sure to please everyone at the table. For the full nostalgic experience, consider serving it with a baked potato or a side of white toast. Adding some broccoli to the plate is a great choice, as broccoli's natural flavors complement ham and cheese beautifully.

Serving size: 2 people
Time: 1 hour 


  • 2 chicken breast; about 1 pound (marinated overnight in your favorite honey mustard dressing or basic chicken marinade)
  • 2 slices of deli smoked ham
  • 2 slices of cheddar cheese or American cheese
  • 2 teaspoons [Not So] SIMPLE SPICE
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Optional: 2 slices of cheddar cheese for topping
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the chicken breast into a greased dish (sliced down the middle but don’t cut all the way in half so you can stuff it).
  3. Add 2 slices of ham & 2 slices of cheese inside the chicken. Make sure to stuff the cheese in first so it stays inside while baking. Fold over to close the chicken
  4. Sprinkle [Not So] SIMPLE SPICE evenly all over each chicken breast.
  5. Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes or until the chicken temp reaches at least 165 degrees.

*Optional: Add 1 slice of cheese to the top of each chicken breast & place back in the oven on broil for an extra 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling
