So we love this meal at our house. And yes I know that it is not the most healthy with all the cheese and stuff but come on every once in awhile it is ok to eat something naughty!! Try this you will love it!!

4 chicken breasts, pounded out to whatever thickness you prefer
1 1/2 cups crushed corn flakes, ritz crackers, or bread crumbs or a combination
1 cup parmesan cheese
2 T. ranch dressing mix
6T. melted butter
Sliced ham and cheese~one piece ham and one piece cheese for each piece of chicken~I use pepper jack, white cheddar, provolone, or mozzarella because I don't care for swiss cheese
Mix the cornflakes/bread crumbs, parm cheese, and ranch dressing mix in a shallow dish. Set aside.If the chicken breast are large I slice them in half so I get two chicken breast instead of one out of each breast. Then I place a piece at a time in a ziploc bag and pound it out with a meat mallet or a hammer until I reach a desired thickness. Then take a slice of ham and roll the cheese into each piece of ham. Then roll a piece of chicken around the ham/cheese bundle.I ususally have to secure with a toothpick. Then rub each piece of chicken with melted butter until well coated. Then roll the chicken roll in the cornflake/parm cheese mixture until well coated. Repeat with all pieces of Chicken. Place in a 9x13 pan and Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

This is what the chicken will look like before placing in the oven:
5 large baking potatoes
1/2 -1 cup sour cream
1/4-1/2 cup butter
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder not garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cheddar cheese plus a little more for the top of each potatoe
Crumbled bacon if desired(we prefer them without)
Bake the potatoes in a 350 oven until they are done. About an hour. Take them out and slice them in half length wise. Scoop out the flesh of the potatoe and put it in a bowl. Do this with all of them. Place the potatoe skins on a cookie sheet. add the soucream, butter, pepper, salt, garlic powder, and cheese to the scooped out potatoes. Mix really well. Then divide this equally between each potatoe skin and top with cheddar cheese
They will look like this:

Then bake them for an additional 30 minutes or until cheese melted and they are bubbly.

This looks like a fabulous way to make cordon blue. I have never tried with the ranch dressing. Sounds yummy.
