How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place a plastic sheet over butterflied chicken breast and using a meat tenderizer, pound to about ¼-inch thick. Spread Dijon mustard on chicken breast to cover the entire surface; season with freshly ground black pepper. Place 2 slices of ham on each breast and then cheese. Tuck in the ends from the outside and then as tight as possible, roll it up.
  2. In a small bowl, season flour with smoked paprika; set aside. In a shallow bowl, beat an egg. In another shallow dish, combine panko, Herbes de Provence, garlic salt and melted butter; stir to combine. Using a small sieve, dust flour mixture on chicken then dip in beaten egg follow with panko mixture, pressing lightly. Transfer coated chicken onto a plate and set aside.
  3. In an over-proof skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. When hot and shimmer, place chicken roulades and sear until golden brown including the ends; about 3 minutes. Transfer skillet into the preheated oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 170ºF. Serve with couscous or Herbs & Butter rice along with veggies.
