Chicken Cordon Bleu

April 28, 2011

When I was younger we used to buy Chicken Cordon Bleu from the Schwan’s man. Then when I got older and moved into the Kappa house, our cook used to make this on formal dinner nights.

I never thought I would be able to make it by myself in my own kitchen.  I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Gina’s Skinny Recipes.  She is always good about taking a classic and turning it in to a lighter, tasty meal.Here’s what you’ll need:

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu

(Inspired from here

  • 4 chicken breast halves

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 3/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs (I like 4C)

  • 12 slices thin lean deli ham

  • 12 slices reduced fat Swiss cheese (I used Sargento)

  • salt

  • spray oil

  • toothpicks

Preheat oven to 350°.

 

Slice chicken breast halves into thin cutlets. I usually get 3 thin cutlets out of one breast half. Pound them to make them thinner if you wish. This helps when you wrap the cutlets.

 

Cut each slice of cheese into squares and stack on top of each other. Place a slice of ham on top of the chicken, top with cheese and wrap chicken around to completely cover cheese, using toothpicks to secure. (Make sure no holes so cheese doesn’t leak out) Season with a little salt.

 

Whisk egg and water to make an egg wash. Dip chicken into egg wash, then breadcrumbs.


Spray cookie sheet with oil and place chicken on cookie sheet. Lightly spray chicken with oil and bake about 25 minutes, until cooked.
