Chicken Cordon Bleu

IMG_6917
If your in search of a dish with an explosion of flavor, Chicken Cordon Bleu is that dish.  Eating only fish, chicken and turkey can sometime get a bit boring which is why I tend to enjoy food that gives you multiple flavors.  The Italian bread crumbs mixed with the parmesan croutons took this to a whole other level.  Not only is this a beautiful dish but it’s also filled with insane flavor and looks as if you were in the kitchen for hours.

Ingredients

2 very large chicken breast
4 slices of turkey bacon cooked for 2 minutes
4 slices of baby swiss
skewer
1 egg
2tbls milk
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan croutons
2tbls butter
seasoned salt
pepper
garlic powder

Directions:
Pre-heat oven on 350

Slice the chicken breast in half and pound with a mallet.  Season the breast well on both sides and set aside.
In a bowl, add the Italian bread crumbs and croutons grinding together well. Add 2tbls of butter and set aside.
Using a flat surface, place one piece of turkey bacon and a slice of swiss on the chicken breast.
Roll the breast like a pin wheel and secure with a skewer.
In a bowl mix well the 1 egg and 2tbls of milk.
Using a brush, brush the egg mix over the breast.
Sprinkle 4tbls of the bread crumbs in the bottom of a baking dish and place the breast in the dish.  Slowly remove the skewers.
Sprinkle the remaining bread crumbs over the breast.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350

    That looks yummy! I have a love/hate relationship going on with chicken right now but I think the bread crumbs might be good on baked fish. I'm going to try it this weekend!

    French dish! We eat that a lot with pasta or salad. You can also use turkey or veal instead of chicken.
    Well done! Do you have some french genes because you cook a little bit like European. xxoxo

    French dish. This is a very familiar dish in France and we eat this with pasta saute in butter or a salad. You can also use turkey or veal instead of chicken.Do you have any French genes because you cook like an European. Nice recipe. xoxoxo
