Ready In:




  • Place chicken between two pieces of wax paper or plastic wrap and pound till 1/4" thick.
  • Place one slice ham and one slice cheese on each breast.
  • Evenly distribute cream cheese between chicken breasts, spreading on top of the ham.
  • Roll up carefully, securing with toothpicks.
  • It is important to secure the ends so the cream cheese doesn't leak out!
  • Just close the ends by securing them with toothpicks.
  • Lightly sprinkle each piece with salt, then dip in the egg.
  • Roll chicken in cracker crumbs.
  • Cook rolls in hot oil in skillet until light brown, turning occasionally (approx. 5-10 minutes) When brown, add water, cover and simmer until chicken is done, about ten minutes.
  • Remove toothpicks and serve.

    I have tended to stay away from cooking this dish, because I thought it would be difficult and time consuming. Boy was I wrong. This recipe was easy and extrememly good. My DH was really impressed. The only thing I did different was use crushed rice krispies instead of crackers, and that was only because I was out of crackers.

    This was wonderful...better than any restaurant cordon blue that I have EVER had...thanks for the great recipe! It's worth the little bit of effort involved!

    This was just a little twist on something I've made for a long time. The cream cheese is a very nice addition and cooking on the stovetop was very easy as well. I've always baked it in the oven and this was quicker. Thank you.

    I made this several weeks ago and how could I forget!? These were great and the cream cheese does make a difference! My kids devoured this chicken, and they don't like chicken! :-) I doubled the recipe and froze the extra four. Just defrosted and heated up in the microwave. Yummy!
