Chicken Cordon Bleu


Culinary Explorer
I’m so excited to show you how EASY it is to make Chicken Cordon Bleu ! This recipe is inspired by the method by husband grew up eating, which includes crushed cornflakes as the coating. It’s absolutely delicious and I especially love that I can make it ahead of time, for company.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    190.9 kB
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices ham
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup (240ml) breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Toothpicks
  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Place each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound the chicken breasts until they are about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place a slice of Swiss cheese and a slice of ham on top of each chicken breast.
  5. Starting from the shorter end, roll up each chicken breast, securing with toothpicks to hold them together.
  6. Set up three shallow dishes. Place the flour in one dish, the beaten eggs in another dish, and the breadcrumbs in the third dish.
  7. Dredge each chicken breast first in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip each breast into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat each breast with breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  8. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  9. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).
  10. Remove the toothpicks from the chicken breasts before serving.
  11. Serve hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
