Chicken Cordon Bleu

Whew!  I have been MIA from the blog world - life has been busy.  I'll tell you more about that later.  I found this awesome recipe from GreenLiteBites.  I am a big fan of chicken roll-up recipes - check out Spinach Stuffed Chicken Parmesan.  I changed the portions on the recipe so I could have enough for my mom & for leftovers.

10 boneless skinless thin sliced chicken breasts (you can always cut a regular chicken breast in half)
5 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss
4 oz thin slices of deli ham
1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg beaters)
1 cup italian seasoned breakcrumbs
Non-stick cooking spray

1. I made a chicken station by spreading out plastic wrap on my counter and placing the sliced chicken breast on top.  Use a meat tenderizer to flatten out the chicken.

 2.  Spread 1/2 wedge of The Laughing Cow cheese on each chicken breast.  It's easier to spread if you let the cheese sit out for a little bit.  

3. Place the ham on top of the chicken. 

4. Whisk the egg (or egg beaters) in one bowl and bread crumbs in another.  Roll up the chicken - smaller side to wider side.  Dip it in the egg and coat it with the breadcrumbs.  You shouldn't have to use toothpicks, the chicken will stay together.  

5.  Place the roll-ups seam side down in a 9x18 pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Spray the tops of the chicken with the non-stick cooking spray and bake on 350 for 35-40 minutes. (I only baked mine for 30 minutes and because there were so many, they didn't get done & I had to cook them longer.)

Okay - clearly not all the way done (I had to heat it in the microwave a little) but you get the idea.  I was in a rush and forgot to take another picture. 

Serve with some green beans or salad and corn and you're dinner is set! 




  1. I've done this! Isn't is delicious? I actually just made or recent,y because I hadn't made them in a few years. I was going to blog about it but my never turn out as picture-pretty as your's did! I'd love for you to link them up to Tips and Tricks Tuesday, so they can be shared without having to look at my awful pictures!


  2. They were delicious! I hate that I don't have a picture of the middle all the way done, but I'll just have to make them again! I'd love to link up - thanks!


  3. These look amazing--let's make dinner soon!

    1. Let's cook soon! Check out my recipe for Crockpot Orange Chicken - YUM! I would make the Chicken Cordon Bleu for small group, but I can only fit 10 thinly sliced tenders in a pan and I know Carl eats like 2, so definitely wouldn't be enough for everyone. I'll have to find something else.

  4. I love chicken cordon bleu! I have never made it at home though. I will have to give it a try.
    Thanks for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen LInk party! I am pinning this!

    1. I had never made it before, either. It turned out pretty well! Let me know how you like it.


I love getting comments and feedback from you!
