I love Chicken Cordon Bleu. I always have and I always will. I think it may have something to do with the fact that cheese oozes out of the center of a nice and tender piece of chicken and then its rolled in crunchy bread crumbs and topped off with a delicious Hollandaise Sauce. I don't know that usually ALWAYS sounds good to me! How bout you? Not to mention that it is one of the easiest dishes to put together to!
2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (flattened to about 1/8"-1/4" thick)
2-4 Slices of thick sliced deli ham (or if you've recently made a ham like this one you could slices of that also)
2-4 slices of Swiss Cheese (or if you don't have swiss cheese on hand I really like smoked cheddar also)
1 1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
Dash of Garlic Salt & Season Salt
3 Tbsp. Butter (melted)
Flatten the chicken breasts to about 1/8"thick. Take 1 slice of ham and top with 1 slice of swiss cheese and roll up so that the cheese is rolled onto the inside of the ham. Take the rolled up ham/cheese roll ups and roll 1 chicken breast around each one and pin the edges of the chicken together with toothpicks. Take the bread crumbs and lightly season them with the garlic salt and season salt. Take the chicken roll ups and roll in the melted butter then dredge them in the bread crumbs till all sides of the chicken are completely covered in crumbs. Bake @*375 for 1 hour
Top with hollandaise sauce OR take 1 can of cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup of sour cream mix it together and spoon over the top.
