Chicken Cordon Bleu


So I love Chicken Cordon Bleu. I never ate it before college. I had a great roommate who introduced it to me. Now if you need a great holiday meal, this is the one. Everyone loves chicken and it is much less expensive than ham, turkey and far less time to do it in.

You'll need chicken, slices of deli ham, swiss cheese, Ritz crackers, eggs, a rolling pin, and plastic wrap.

Slice one chicken breast in half to create two thin slices. Take one slice and place it in the plastic wrap.
With the rolling pin beat the chicken until nice and flat.
Unwrap the chicken, place a slice of ham and a piece of swiss cheese on top to the chicken. Then roll it all up.
It will look a little like this. But you're not done yet.
Now beat the eggs together and crunch up the crackers until they are nice and fine. Dip the chicken in the egg and then roll it in the crackers.
They will look a little something like this. Now you'll bake them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
When you're done. They'll look like this. This picture has rice and some potatoes. Mmmm.....these make great leftovers.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

2-4lbs Chicken Breast
6-8 slices of deli ham
1 block of swiss cheese
2 eggs
1 package of Ritz Crackers

Pound thaw chicken until flat. Place slice of ham and chunk of swiss cheese onto pounded chicken. Roll up and place to the side. Repeat with other pieces of chicken. Beat eggs and crumble crackers into separate bowls. Dip chicken rolls into eggs and then roll in cracker mixture. Place in a greased dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

  1. We love chicken cordon bleu as well, but once we were out of swiss cheese and exchanged pepper jack. It was awesome! Now we always have it with pepper jack. Try it. The pepper jack doesn't make it hot enough that even our little one can't eat it. It is just more tasty!
