Super Simple Chicken Cordon Bleu

Super Simple Chicken Cordon Bleu
Jeremy Anderberg

Hi, my name is Jeremy. I don’t know how to cook.

There, I said it.

I generally cook twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays when my wife works late. I like to have dinner ready when she gets home, but sadly it has traditionally been mac and cheese, pizza, or Lloyd’s barbeque sandwiches. That got old after a few months, so I decided I needed to branch out a little bit and start trying some new things. I stumbled across a few simple chicken cordon bleu recipes, and did a little mash-up to create this super tasty, super easy meal for two.

Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (we had thin-sliced filets, which were super easy to work with for this recipe) 
  • 2 slices high-quality deli ham
  • 4 slices high-quality Swiss cheese (the good ingredients make all the difference!)
  • Panko (ours is seasoned – makes life easy)
  • Toothpicks

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325.

2. Pound the chicken flat, so it’s about a quarter-inch thick.

3. Place a slice of ham on the chicken. Then a slice of Swiss cheese, along with a couple extra chunks so you cover the whole piece of chicken.

4. Fold the entire thing in half, keep in place with two toothpicks. Place into glass baking dish, and cover with Panko.

5. Bake for 32-33 minutes. Pull chicken out, place an additional half-slice of Swiss on top, bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.

6. Voila! Serve with rice, fresh fruit, or in my case, mashed potatoes. A glass of white wine also goes great with this meal.
