How To Make Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

11:30 AM

Chicken is a staple in our household. It's always a part of our weekly menu; so much so that it takes creativity to make something new out of it. This is how I came to trying the Chicken Cordon Bleu. It's flavorful and a great twist to the typical fried/baked chicken. It's a new favorite in our home. I hope it becomes one for your home as well.


4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper 
1/8 tsp paprika
10 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices cooked ham
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs


- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up. 
- Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thickness.
- Season each piece of chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper and paprika.
- Place 2 cheese slices and 2 ham slices on top of each breast.
- Roll up each breast and secure with toothpicks.
- Sprinkle chicken evenly with bread crumbs and place in baking dish.
- Bake for an hour or until chicken is no longer pink. 
- Remove from oven and remove the toothpicks. Place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast.
- Return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Serve over buttered corn or rice.
