Chicken Cordon Bleu is perfect as it is. Elegant and delicious! But, in true Coop fashion, I added a slight Cajun twist. Incorporating a few Cajun spices woke that chicken up! This is my take on a wonderful, French classic! Check out my YouTube video for this recipe. Here, you’ll see step by step instructions. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy title. This entree was a breeze! It was also a lot of fun to make.
You MUST have thin chicken breast, so break out the mallet, Cover the bird with plastic wrap, and beat it like it back talked you or owes you $$ whatever works. Wait, preheat your oven to like 350.. Whatever feels safe. Ok now back to the ? season it.Here’s where my Cajun twist comes in. Add those Cajun spices! Yum
Now grab a slice of ham. Any kind except honey! No sweet meat today! Now a slice of cheese. I used Gruyere because it made me feel special that day, but Swiss works! Roll the chicken and let him chill in the fridge for awhile.
Take him out after 15-20 mins. Throw way that plastic wrap. We can’t eat that, boo! Now, secure him with toothpicks if it’s being a jerk and unrolling.
Plate some breadcrumbs and season it with salt, pepper, onion & garlic powder. Then put an egg and some milk in a bowl (egg wash!) Now, roll that guy in some flour, dip in egg, then breadcrumbs.
Take him over to the stove that should have a hot skillet with a lil oil in it waiting for him, because I mentioned that earlier right? ? Brown ALL four sides of this guy. Then, place him in a greased dish (or leave it in the skillet if it’s an oven safe one) and bake for 15-20 mins or however long it takes until he’s no longer pink inside. But don’t over cook!
Now, I’ll be honest. This sauce was an accident that ended up making sense (story of my life??) But, it’s honestly soooo yummy! So, don’t skip it!
Hope you try this!!!
