Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

This Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe is so easy to make. Instead of preparing it the traditional way by pounding out the chicken breast, and rolling it up, you just cut the breast in half horizontally with a knife, leaving one of the edges intact, and stuff the opening with the meat and cheese.

So quick and easy, perfect for a busy weeknight meal.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Servings: 4

Ingredients:
4 large chicken breast
4 slices deli ham
4 slices Swiss cheese
1/4 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 Tbsp finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic salt

Directions:
In a shallow bowl, place the flour, the egg in another, and the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and salt in another. With a knife, cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally, leaving one of the edges intact. Place a piece of cheese on a slice of ham and roll it up. Place it into the opening. Secure with toothpicks if necessary. Dip the chicken into the flour, then into the egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts and place them in a greased 9x13” pan. Bake on the bottom oven rack at 450 degrees F. for about 10 minutes. Lower temperature to 400 degrees F. and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the center of the chicken breasts registers 165 degrees F. on an instant read thermometer.

For the sauce:
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Whisk in flour, then milk. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Boil for at least one minute.

Enjoy!
