Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

Happy Wednesday! Y’all, I made this recipe for dinner a couple nights ago and it was SO good! It’s also super easy and doesn’t take long to make at all! I will definitely be making this again soon! Even Patrick liked it, so that’s a win in my book!

Ingredients for Cordon Bleu:

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

16 slices Swiss cheese

1/2 pound slice ham

1 cup flour (I used gluten free flour)

4 eggs

2 cups panko bread crumbs (I used gluten free bread crumbs)

Ingredients for creamy Dijon sauce:

2 tablespoons butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons flour (I used gluten free flour)

2 cups milk

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Directions for Chicken Cordon Bleu:

  1. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, tossing to coat evenly
  2. On a cutting board, place a chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound until about 1/2 inch thick with meat mallet, rolling pin or heavy pan
  3. Remove the plastic wrap and place a layer of Swiss cheese, then ham, then one more layer of Swiss cheese
  4. Evenly roll the chicken, and place onto a new sheet of plastic wrap
  5. Wrap the chicken in the plastic wrap, twist the excess plastic, and roll the chicken while twisting the sides in to tighten and firm up the roll on chicken cordon bleu. Tie the excess and chill in the fridge to set for 30 minutes
  6. After the rolls are set, prepare large, wide dishes with flour, beaten egg, and bread crumbs, and dredge the chicken in the flour, egg, and bread crumbs
  7. Place the breaded chicken cordon bleu in a 325 degree pot of oil, and cook about 5 minutes per side or until the outside is an even golden brown. If a good color is acheived and the chicken’s center is still not 165 degrees, you can finish the chicken in the oven at 325 degrees until that temperature is reached

Directions for Creamy Dijon Sauce:

  1. In a small pot on medium heat, melt the butter and cook the garlic until soft
  2. Add in flour, and whisk for 1 minute
  3. Add in the milk, and whisk until fully combined with the roux. Continue whisking until the mixture comes to a simmer and has thickened
  4. Add in the Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Whisk to combine. Set aside
  5. Slice the chicken and drizzle with Dijon sauce.
  6. Enjoy!
