Chicken Cordon Bleu Portabella in a White Sauce

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This recipe is from my gourmet cooking class in college. We were divided into "kitchens" and each "kitchen" group prepared a recipe for everyone to try. The group behind me made this and I thought it was one of the best cordon blue recipes I'd had, not to mention easy and somewhat inexpensive. Since the class, I've been looking for an excuse to make it myself.

I thought this was quite luscious. For the two of us, I only used two chicken breasts (fat trimmed off), flattened by placing them between sheets of plastic wrap and beating with a rolling pin. I still used four slices of ham and cheese, to cover the whole breast. The four portabellas I chopped into large chunks. The chicken just seemed to stick up too high sitting on the whole mushrooms. I did not halve the sauce and it worked out wonderfully. When it was done, the bubbly sauce was halfway up the chicken rolls, with the portabella chunks swimming happily. Yummy. With a side or two, plenty to eat. Unfortunately, my husband doesn't like sweet and meat together, so I can't make this for both of us again. I will pass it on to others.

We are watching our carbs, so figured I'd give this recipe a try. I made it for the two of us, and it was really tasty! I used regular mushrooms instead of the portabellas, since I had them in the fridge. I cut the mushrooms into chunks and layered them on the bottom of the baking dish for the chicken to sit on. I just made it with 2 chicken breasts, and flattened the breasts to roll them up easier. I did not cut the sauce in half, and used a can of golden mushroom soup, since that was in the pantry. I used a couple of toothpicks to keep the breasts folded over. I served my with some roasted asparagus, and it was a great meal. I will make this again!!
