Chicken Cordon Blue | #SundaySupper

Chicken Cordon Blue – tender chicken, ham and Swiss cheese rolled and breaded. Delicious!

Chicken Cordon Blue from The Foodie Army Wife

When I was growing up there were certain sounds that I loved to hear coming from the kitchen. One of those sounds was that of my mother’s meat mallet pounding away in the kitchen. That sound meant one of two things. We were having my mom’s “round steaks” or we were having Cordon Blue. Both of which were meals I loved.

My mother made her Cordon Blue with traditional veal, and deep fried the rolls of breaded goodness. This version that I am sharing today is made with chicken cutlets and is baked.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In your food processor, combine 2 cups of bread crumbs, 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 3/4 teaspoon thyme. Pulse these together a few times, until very fine. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish.

In another dish, whisk 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of milk until frothy.

In a third dish, place about a cup of flour.

Now for the substance. You’ll need a package of thin chicken cutlets, some Swiss cheese, and some sliced ham from the deli. I used about 4 ounces of cheese. You’ll cut the cheese into sticks – and you’ll need as many “cheese sticks” as you have chicken cutlets. You’ll need the same number of ham slices. And you’ll need some toothpicks.

Roll them up tightly and secure with toothpicks.

Dredge the roll in the flour, then coat with the egg wash, and then with the bread crumbs.

Place it on a baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the chicken cutlets, ham and cheese.

Bake these for 35-40 minutes or until they are cooked through.

Look at that gorgeous, gooey cheese!

Carefully remove the toothpicks.

    Isn’t it amazing that a simple sound could bring back so many memories. I am the same way. Thanks for the reminder that I haven’t made Chicken Cordon Blue in forever!

    So beautiful, Conni! And like so many of your recipes – this is a keeper! How wonderful that you had a cooking mom…And thank you for sharing your chicken in the oven version.

  3. says

    Mmmmm….I’m certainly overdue for making Chicken Cordon Bleu! You’ve inspired me to add it to my menu ASAP. I always love picking off any leftover oozing cheese from the baking pan…you’ve made me very hungry this morning!

    I haven’t had chicken cordon blue in ages. Thanks for posting this because I’m certain my husband would be thrilled if I made it for him. This is right up his alley.

  5. says

    It’s been so long since I’ve had Chicken Cordon Blue and I’ve only ever had the frozen kind! This looks absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! HUGS

    My husband is a fan of chicken cordon blue, but I always hesitant to make it because the recipe I have requires deep-fry, instead of bake. I’m sure the addition of garlic and thyme bring this meal to a new level. Gonna surprise the hubs with this one. Bookmarked!

    Those came out beautifully, Conni! I adore chicken cordon bleu but I hardly ever think to make it. You have motivated me to put it back in rotation. Thank you!

  8. says

    I have had chicken cordon blue at restaurants before but even though it has been on my foodie bucket list for years I haven’t made it yet. Really need to do that this year.

  9. says

    Conni, I love chicken cordon bleu! Thank you for the helpful step by step photos. I can’t wait to try this. I’m especially glad that you baked these instead of fried (no standing over a hot oven waiting for these babies). I’m drooling just by looking at your photos.

    I. Love. This. Post!!! What a wonderful throwback to an ’80’s childhood! This looks so tasty and it’s making me crave chicken cordon blue, which of course I haven’t had in so many years. Thanks for posting!
