Couldn't get the chicken to flatten as directed. I think it would be easier to just cut the side of the breast and stuff with ingredients. Seal with a toothpick, and coat as directed. Good taste thou.
I had to change a few things. First, I used cube steak as I didn't have any chicken on hand. I didn't pound it as it was already quite thin. Next, I didn't have Swiss cheese so I used string cheese from my kid's lunchbox. I didn't have ham so I used spinach instead. Now, I did roll it up as per the recipe, that was great! Finally, I didn't have thyme so I skipped entirely. I decided to cook it on the stove top as my oven was broken. I paired it with tater tots (heated in the microwave) and beef jerky. Possibly the best Chicken Cordon Bleu I've ever had! Just kidding. Make recipe exactly as stated, and it's a wonderful dish! 5 stars, delicious!
This is the best Cordon Bleu recipe I've found. It was delicious. I followed your recipe to the letter and it came out great. Thanks so much for sharing.
This really was as easy as advertised, though my cook time to get the internal temperature to 165 was quite a bit longer. When I flatten chicken breasts, I put them into a gallon ziploc, left unsealed, and whack away. The plastic is stronger than saran, and I seem to tear the meat less frequently. To reheat leftovers, I microwaved for just a minute, and then broiled to get the crumbs crusty again. Next time, I think I'll look for a way to add a bit more flavor, maybe with pricier cured meat or smoked aged cheese.
So good!! I used thighs instead of breasts and as another reviewer suggested, drizzled butter over top before baking. Wonderful. Served with steamed broccoli and wild rice. My family gave this recipe 10 stars. Thanks for posting!
No gravy or sauce needed, a simple yet stunning meal served alongside steamed vegies! I used 2 eggs and 2 Tbsp of milk (instead of water). I also omitted the oil and poured into a skillet, I browned the chicken crust for 8 minutes (2 minutes each quarter turn), then transferred to the oven so cook thouroughly for 15-20 minutes. Can also use prosciutto, but thin sliced deli ham is terrific and much less spendy. We tried bacon too and it turned out too "breakfasty"
Good flavor, took a bit of work to get it flattened and rolled up tho. My chicken breasts were really big, so it took about 35 minutes for mine to cook through. Will make again. YUM!
Quite tasty! I put it together a few hours before company came and then popped in the oven when the timing was right
Very delicious. Easy to prepare, too. When I want to make a special dinner, this recipe is on the list of possibilities. Used Sauce for Chicken Cordon Bleu, Sauce for Chicken Cordon Bleu. I love how crispy the panko makes the outside. Thanks for sharing!
