Cheesy Hasselback Chicken

I was so excited when I saw this recipe! It looked so pretty yet so easy! It definitely was those two things, but it just didn't taste as fabulous as it looked. Don't get be wrong it was still good, but I guess presentation isn't everything.

Cheesy Hasselback Chicken (


  • 4 thick boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4-6 oz. deli-sliced ham, cut into strips about 1" by 2"
  • 4 slices cheese, cut into strips about 1" by 2" (colby jack, pepper jack, cheddar, provolone, etc.)
  • seasoned salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Slice slits about 1" apart in chicken breasts almost all the way through, leaving the bottom surface connected. Slide strips of ham and cheese into each slit.

Sprinkle chicken liberally with seasoned salt and pepper to taste. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve and enjoy!

Dan and I thought this meal looked pretty fancy, but sadly the chicken turned out kind of dry. Dan rated this a 3 stars out of 5.
