Chicken Cordon Bleu

6 May

I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite sites, skinnytaste.  They always have great recipes, and you will likely see many more of their recipes here in the future.


– 6 Thin sliced Chicken Breasts (appx 3 oz each)

– salt and pepper

– 1 large egg

– 2 egg whites

– 1 tbsp water

– 1 1/4 cups italian seasoned breadcrumbs

– 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (optional, mix with bread crumbs)

– 6 slices of thin deli ham (i used Hillshire farms)

– 3 slices swiss cheese (peppridge farm thin slices) cut in 1/2


1. Preheat oven to 450.  Spray a large non-stick baking pan with PAM.

2. wash and dry the chicken, and season with salt and pepper.

3. Lay the chicken flat on a plate, and place 1 slice of ham and 1/2 slice of cheese in the center of each breast.

4. Mix all eggs with 1 tbsp water.  Set aside in a dish.

5.  Tightly roll chicken breasts until ham and cheese are tightly rolled in the center.

6. Holding the chicken “roll” tightly together, dip chicken into egg, and then coat with breadcrumbs.

7. Place chicken seam side down on baking dish.

8.  Spray tops of chicken lightly with PAM, and bake 25 min.
