Have you ever seen those breaded chicken cordon bleu in the freezer section?
Have you ever looked at the price?
I don't know about you but no frozen food is worth that price. So today I'm going to share with you my moms easy recipe for homemade chicken cordon bleu. Now you can have it without breaking the bank.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
2 chicken breasts
6 thin slices ham
6 slices swiss cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
4-8 oz half and half
crushed corn flakes or bread crumbs
Fillet your chicken breasts into thirds. Lay out the chicken breasts and place a piece of ham and a piece of cheese on each. *Note: if you use ham from the deli the slices tend to be pretty big around. You may be able to cut them in half and only use 3 slices. Roll up the chicken breasts and coat them in the melted butter. Then roll them in the corn flakes/bread crumbs. Place in a sprayed 9x9 pan.
In a bowl mix soup and half and half. *Note: I said 4-8 oz because it depends on how thick you like your sauce. I like mine a little more runny so I use closer to 8. Pour sauce over the chicken. Bake covered at 350* for 30 min. Then uncover and bake for 15 min.
We like to serve it with rice or noodles and put the sauce over the top. I have also used mozzarella instead of swiss to save on a few bucks and it still tastes yummy. Bon Appetite!
