About 5 years ago, my good friend Sara R made some Chicken Cordon Bleu. I loved it so much I had her walk me through how she made it so that I could make it too. Ever since then, it has been one of my favorite meals that I make. I don't do it very often (because its kind of a process) but when I do, its a treat. It is pretty simple, but when you make it... people are always so impressed with your gourmet cooking skills.
Thank you Sara for sharing with me this amazing recipe that I love. I am now going to share it with you. I made it last night for an Italian dinner that we had at my house (don't worry, that will be my next post). It was a hit. I should have made more knowing we were going to be feeding guys. Oh well.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
What you need?
* Chicken Breasts
* Cream Cheese
* Thin sliced ham
* Thin sliced Swiss cheese
* Melted Butter
* Italian Bread Crumbs
First Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. After your chicken thawed, butterfly each chicken breast then pound them (I put the chicken in between tin foil to do this) so that they are flat. Put a thin layer of ham on top. Should look something like this.
Once the ham is on top, spread a layer of cream cheese on top of that. Then put a thin layer of Swiss cheese on top of that.
After all the layers are there, roll up the chicken. Mine usually stay rolled up pretty well, but some people use toothpicks to help keep them rolled up.
Then you want to dip the rolled chicken in the melted butter and then cover with Italian bread crumbs.
Once you have done this with all of the chicken, put them on a cookie sheet (spray with Pam of something to help it not stick) and then cook the chicken for around 20 minutes. The cheese should be oozing out the bottom when its done.
Eat and Enjoy! :o)
