Bacon Chicken Cordon Bleu

Christine Schnepp


I found this recipe a few months ago and played around with it a little bit. I have only had a good cordon bleu once in my life before this. It is so tasty and I think the goat cheese puts a lot of flavor in it. Who says you have to go out to get a good chicken cordon? Enjoy!!

How to Make Bacon Chicken Cordon Bleu


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken breast flat on a cutting board, using a sharp knife, about 1/3 of the way down the thick side, cut a deep pocket horizontally into the center of the meat about 3/4 of the way down, being careful not to cut through to the other side. Season each pocket with salt and pepper. Cut the Goat Cheese in quarters. Wrap each cheese slice and bacon crumbs with ham. Place each wrapped quarter into each pocket that was made in the chicken breasts. Wrap each stuffed chicken breast and place in refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. Set up a standard breading procedure using 3 shallow containers. Put flour in the first one, eggs and milk in the second, and Panko bread crumbs in the third one. Beat the eggs and milk together. Dredge each of the stuffed Chicken Breasts first in flour, then egg wash and then in the Panko bread crumbs. In a large, oven-proof skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Place the pan in the oven and bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool and serve.
