This is a delicious and easy chicken cordon blue recipe. This can be easily prepared in advance by keeping the prepared chicken log(without the toothpicks)rolled up in plastic wrap. I use shredded cheese instead of the traditional slice cheese because it doesn’t run out of the roll while baking.

How to Make Chicken Cordon Bleu

Step-by-Step

  1. Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Using the smooth side of a meat mallet, pound and flatten out to a 1/4-inch thickness.
  2. Remove plastic and top each piece of chicken with a slice of ham. Add 1/8 cup shredded cheese in the center each piece of ham. Fold edges of ham horizontally over cheese. (This helps keep the cheese enclosed in the rollup).
  3. Roll up the chicken, starting at the narrow end, over the filling. Secure with tooth picks.
  4. Melt butter in a shallow bowl or pie plate.
  5. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder.
  6. Lightly brush a little mustard on the top of chicken.
  7. Remove toothpicks and gently dip the rolled chicken in melted butter, then coat gently in the crumb mixture covering completely.
  8. Butter a small baking dish and place chicken logs seam side down. Secure ends with toothpicks if necessary.
  9. Bake uncovered at 350° for30-40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  10. Serve with gravy, hollandaise sauce, or leave plain.
