  5. Fold the empty half of the chicken breast up and over the ham and cheese stuffed half. Use kitchen twine or toothpicks to close the cordon blue to keep the filling from falling out in the oven.

  6. Spoon or brush the remaining horseradish mayo sauce over each chicken cordon bleu and place the chicken breasts onto a baking sheet.

  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the chicken juices run clear, or the temperature of the chicken is 160-degrees using a meat thermometer.

  8. Remove the chicken cordon bleu from the oven and top each breast with the remaining Swiss cheese.

  9. Return the chicken cordon bleu to the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes to brown and melt the cheese.
