Chicken Cordon Bleu II

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Linky

This is a combination of several recipes using ingredients that I usually have on hand. I used the kind of ham that comes in 3 ounce packages with about 8 very thin slices. (Buddig is the brand if that helps.) For cheese I used one wedge of low fat Laughing Cow swiss cheese per breast. DH loved it so I thought I'd share!

Very easy and tasty. I had some Gruyere to use up, so used that, but will try it with the Laughing Cow next time. I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs.

  2. Remove wrap and repeat with other breast.
  3. Place 2 slices of ham on each chicken piece. Cut a cheese wedge into 3 or 4 pieces and lay along center of ham slice. Fold in bottom and sides; secure with toothpicks.
  4. Coat rolls with flour. Dip into bowl with egg and water mixture; coat with bread crumbs.
  5. Dip in egg mixture again, coat with more bread crumbs.
  6. Heat butter and oil in 10 inch skillet. Cook rolls until browned on each side and no longer pink for about 15-20 minutes. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for an additional 15 minutes.
