Chicken Cordon Bleu

I had my first bite of Chicken Cordon Bleu about a month ago, and I liked it. I never dared tasted it because it has the word 'bleu' in it..which I figured meant bleu cheese! I never knew all that was in it was ham and cheese rolled up in a chicken breast!! I set out to make my own and came up with this recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 7x11 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thickness.
  3. Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 ham slice on top of each breast. Roll up each breast, and secure with a toothpick. Place in baking dish, and sprinkle chicken evenly with bread crumbs.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from oven, and place 1/2 cheese slice on top of each breast. Return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Remove toothpicks, and serve immediately.
I also made this sauce to go on top..
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
Mix together in a saucepan until warm.

I served the chicken over some rice and had steamed veggies on the side. We loved it!
