Directions

  1. On a work surface, make sandwiches using 2 of the chicken breast cutlets for each: layer 1 of the cutlets, a slice of Swiss cheese and a slice of ham, then another slice of cheese and a slice of chicken. Fasten the sandwiches in the center with a toothpick.
  2. On a plate, mix the 1/2 cup of flour with the paprika and season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
  3. Dredge a sandwich in the flour to coat lightly on both sides, shaking off any excess. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
  4. In a 12-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the olive oil and cook the sandwiches over medium-high heat until cooked through and golden, turning once, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour until smooth.
  6. Whisk in the vermouth and cook for 1 minute (optional). Slowly whisk in the heavy cream and cook, stirring continuously, until the sauce comes to a soft boil and thickens, about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in the torn up Swiss cheese and cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and serve the fondue-style sauce in small bowls alongside the chicken.

Sublime! Title somewhat confusing, it's not a fondue at all, but a chicken cordon bleu served with a fondue-like cheese sauce on the side. It is so good! I did replace the Swiss cheese for the sauce with blue cheese, just for fun. It turned out fantastic and I think any kind of strong cheese that melts nicely could be used just as well as the Swiss.
