This is the best chicken cordon blue recipe I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The taste is amazing and complex, but it is seriously easy to make.
I have so many other blogs that I want to write right now, but I just have to take a moment to share this recipe that I stumbled upon for chicken cordon bleu because it is soooooo good! (Thanks mortgage company newsletter!) I have tried making this before, and I always felt like I needed a sauce to go along with it, but the way that all of these ingredients work together makes a sauce or any sides even…irrelevant.
- 4 Boneless Chicken Breast Halves
- 1 lb of Deli Ham
- 1 lb of Swiss Cheese
- 1 Cup of Melted Butter
- 4 Slices of Bread (I prefer sourdough.)
- Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Paprika, really…whatever you fancy
- Preheat the Oven: to 350º F
- Cut the Chicken: Use a really sharp knife to cut the breasts into layers that are ¼ thick.
- Ham and Swiss: Top each chicken breast filet with a slice of cheese and then ham.
- Roll It: Roll, tuck the ends, and secure with a couple of toothpicks.
- Butter: Use a glass bowl to melt the butter (the shallower the better), then dip the entire roll in it. Make sure the butter gets into every crevice.
- Breadcrumbs: Use a blender, or crumble by hand, the slices of bread. Add your preferred seasonings and mix. After dipping the chicken in butter, roll it around in the breadcrumbs.
- Baking Pan: Place the chicken rolls into a (preferably glass) baking pan. You can squish them together pretty closely.
- Cook: Bake for 40 minutes at 350º F.
- Serve: Serve alone or with noodles or rice and some sort of veggie like broccoli or asparagus.
