Stupid easy recipes you really love

My family has a 3, 4, and 5-ingredient cookbooks. Two of my favorites are;

Chicken Pinwheels
Butterfly and/or pound out chicken breasts until thin, Smother in Cream Cheese (I usually use Onion & Chive or some other version to add more flavor), roll, with cream cheese in, and wrap in bacon. Cook in 375 degree oven until bacon and chicken are cooked through (Found it really depends on the oven, how thick the chicken is, etc)

Chicken Cordon Orange
Cook chicken breasts completely. Add dried powder used for making dressing (i.e. Hidden Valley Italian powder) to season the chicken on both sides. Add slices of your preferred cheese (We use Colby-Jack, hence the name) and then top with folded ham slices. Add a lid to the pan to help the cheese melt. A small ice cube in a hot pan with add more steam to help with the melting if need be.
