Your standard and well-known stuffed chicken breast with ham and swiss cheese, often covered by a mushroom sauce that I don't like.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Cordon Bleu

8 boneless chicken breast halves, skinless
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
4 slices cooked ham, cut in half
4 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Recipe Directions for Chicken Cordon Bleu

  1. Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper or in food storage bag. Pound gently to flatten, using a rolling pin or smooth side of meat mallet. Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Combine eggs with 1 cup milk; dip chicken pieces in mixture. Place a piece of ham and a piece of cheese in the center of each flattened piece of chicken. Brush top of cheese slices with the milk and egg mixture. Fold ends over the ham and cheese; roll up, beginning with long side. Secure rolls with toothpicks. Dredge chicken in the 1/3 cup flour then dip in remaining milk mixture; roll in bread crumbs to coat well. Place chicken rolls on a plate; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  2. Heat 1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Fry chicken rolls for 20 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown. Drain well. Serve with mushroom sauce. Serves 8.
