Classic chicken Cordon Bleu with ham and swiss

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Cordon Bleu

24 ounce chicken breasts
4 slices ham
4 slices swiss cheese
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 clove garlic, peeled and finely minced
2 eggs

Recipe Directions for Chicken Cordon Bleu

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Lay the chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, gently pound the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove the top sheet of plastic and lay 1 slice of ham neatly over the top to cover the breast and place one slice of cheese over the ham. Tuck in the sides of the breast and roll up tight like a jellyroll inside the plastic wrap. Squeeze the log gently to seal and twist both ends tight to form a nice log. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  3. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Mix the bread crumbs with thyme, garlic and kosher salt, and pepper. Beat together the eggs and season so the flour, the eggs and the crumbs are all seasoned.

  4. Remove the plastic wrap. Lightly dust the chicken with flour, dip in the egg mixture and gently coat in the bread crumbs. Lightly coat a baking pan with olive oil and carefully transfer the roulades onto it. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until browned and cooked through.
