Poor Mans Cordon Blu

Michele Gillaspie


I tried to find something cheaper and just as good as the orginal and my family thinks I have. They want this for their special Birthday dinners.

15 Min


30 Min


4 Slices
per person of deli sliced chicken brest sliced medium
4 Slices
per person of deli sliced ham (i use smoked)
4 Slices
per person of deli sliced swiss cheese
2 c
italian bread crumbs
4 c
water, cold

Directions Step-By-Step

For each half serving placed 2 slices of chicken over lapping each other on work space, making sure the ends overlap only about 1/4 of the whole slice.
On top of each chicken place 2 slices of ham, making sure they overlap just like chicken.
On top of chicken/ham place 2 pieces of cheese, again overlapping.
Carefully roll up the chicken/ham/cheese starting at one end. Will look short and fat. Use a toothpick to hold together.
Dip in the water and then roll in the bread crumbs, coating completely. Place in a 13x9 inch bake pan (you can spray with cooking spray to allow easier exit of rolls) and after all are rolled up bake for 30 to 35 min or until golden and the cheese melts out the sides a little. Serve 2 rolls per person as main dish.
Note: you can substitute deli turkey breast for the chicken if you desire. Its good both ways.
