Green Chile Chicken Cordon Bleu

I cheated yet again on a cordon blue recipe. These were breaded and rolled and baked in the oven and the picture looked oh-so gorgeous!  I super simplified the recipe yet it came out delicious! 

Green Chilie Chicken Cordon Bleu
Adapted from Barefeet in the Kitchen

2 - 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts (I had 3 big breasts cut into half for 6 portions)
1 small can of green chiles
6 pieces of ham
6 pieces of provolone
Salt and pepper

Separate chicken into 6 even pieces. Brown in pan on medium high heat with a bit of oil or bacon grease.  Turn over and cook until cooked and browned on both sides.  With a spoon, spread green chilies on each chicken breast.  Cover with ham and top with cheese.  Cook until heated through and cheese is melted.
