Chicken cordon blue

These are so much better to eat than the frozen ones, and they are so good and easy to make. hope you like them as much as we do!


1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast for each cordon blue
1 slice of ham per cordon blue
1 slice cheese of choice per cordon blue (i used swiss this time and have used pepper jack in the past, both very good)
a few sliced mushrooms if you like them



Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Rinse chicken breast and place in ziploc bag. Pound chicken out flat, not paper thin you dont want it to dry out...
Place chicken on flat surface, what would be skin side down, Lay slice of ham on chicken, topped with slice of cheese, and a couple of sliced mushrooms in the middle of the chicken, roll chicken up and placing toothpicks to hold everything together while baking.

Place on lightly sprayed cooking pan. I think next time i will place mine in baking dish with a little bit of water covered with foil to hold moisture in to ensure it doesnt dry out.

Bake for about 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked (not pink anymore)

I served mine with some fresh steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes with butter and parsley
