Chicken Cordon Bleu with White Sauce

This recipe is worth the "little bit" of effort that you have to put into making it. Don't shy away from making it just because it sounds hard. I am the "easy queen" when it comes to cooking...I don't make things that are hard...so you know that it can't be too difficult. This recipe is very comparable to any Yummy Chicken Cordon Bleu that I have eaten at a restaurant!...Its delicious!!!! One of the things that make this chicken so good is the sauce...WOW! Defiantly a must when you eat this!!!

Chicken Cordon Bleu

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast
8 slices of deli ham, cut thinly
8 slices thinly sliced swiss cheese
2 cubes butter
4-6 c. crushed cornflakes

Prepare chicken by flattening it to 1/2" thick. (I do this by putting the chicken in a ziplock bag and then zipping it shut. Then I beat it with a rolling pin...it works like a charm) Place one slice of ham and one slice of cheese onto flattened chicken breast, then roll into a tight tube. Anchor each tube with a toothpick through the middle. (it could possibly take more than 1 toothpick if your tube is bigger) Melt butter. Dip rolled chicken into butter mixture and then roll in the crushed cornflakes. Place a small amount of melted butter in the bottom of a l9x13-inch pan then place dipped chicken rolls into pan. Cover pan with foil and cook at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Serve with White Sauce if desired.

White Sauce

2 cans cream chicken soup
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 c. sour cream

Milk (optional)

Mix in a saucepan over medium heat until blended and hot. Add milk if you want your sauce a little thinner. Serve over Chicken Cordon Bleu.

Happy Cooking~

  2. This looks so good! My hubby loves cordon bleu so I can't wait to try it, I'm curious as to what you served with it? Mashed potatoes?

    I am excited to hear back from you after you try this recipe. You will have to let me know how you like it. I served it with baked potatoes, but mashed would be really good. YUM...good luck.

  4. Julie this was so good! My husband said it was one of the best meals I have ever made. I think next time I make this, I'll cut out almost all the margarine. But there will definitely be a next time! Thanks, Steph
