This is one of the easiest recipes that I have come up with recently – Chicken Cordon Bleu. It came out so tasty that even the picky husband was impressed and wants me to fix it again! This would work great for a quick weeknight meal or on the weekend when you have guests, they will think you slaved over this meal when in reality – it takes very little prep.
I started out with the thin chicken breast cutlets that you can buy at the grocery store. I took the chicken breast and laid it flat on a chopping board. I then layered thinly sliced honey ham and swiss cheese.
Starting from the small end, I rolled the chicken up tightly and secured it with two toothpicks. I then dipped the chicken roll in a bit of milk and then placed it in bread crumbs.
Bake the chicken at 400˚ for 20 to 25 minutes, or until your chicken is cooked through. Since you are rolling the chicken, I suggest using a meat thermometer and checking to make sure the inner layers of chicken are cooked to 165˚. Remove the toothpicks prior to serving and enjoy!
