Melissa's Cuisine: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my favorite meals.  It's one that I would often request when it was my birthday and I got to choose the dinner.  I don't make it too often though because it can be quite time consuming and a pain to roll up and keep the filling in the chicken.  I knew there had to be another way, and guess what?  There is!  This is such an easy way to make Chicken Cordon Bleu and it tastes the same as the more complicated version!
You will need:
2 chicken breasts
2 slices of thick sliced ham
2 slices Monterrey Jack cheese

1.  Slice each piece of chicken in half, but don't slice all the way through, to create a pocket.

2.  Place a piece of ham in the pocket.

3.  Place a piece of cheese on top of the ham.

4.  Close the chicken with a toothpick.

5.  Sprinkle the top of each chicken breast with breadcrumbs.

6.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked all the way through.


  1. Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my favorites too! I cannot eat the bread crumbs, and I would have to have that sauce that goes over it. Like you, I only make it on special occassions but this looks like a good quickie version for all who can eat bread.

  2. Makes me want to eat it straight from the photo!

  3. Yummy! My hubby and I loooove chicken cordon bleu. I can't wait to try your recipe!

  4. That just looks so wonderful. This is one of my favs. I cannot wait to try your recipe.

  5. This looks so yummy. I can't wait to try it. I'm a huge cordon bleu fan. I usually buy the frozen ones for a quick version for myself, but honestly its not so quick because they take an hour to cook. haha.

    I will definitely be trying these!

  6. Yum! This is my hubby's favorite!! Thanks for sharing at Make Something Mondays!!
