Chicken Cordon Bleu

I love this quick recipe but, should you choose to pound and roll the cutlets; same recipe works ingredient wise. I prefer this method to save prep time.


2  boneless   chicken breasts

1 tbsp  Jack Daniels Old #7 mustard

garlic powder (optional)

2 tbsp mayonnaise

1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

6 – 8 slices Swiss cheese

8 -10 thin slices of hmm

prep time 15 minutes

pre-heat oven to 375*     

 Set  in baking dish and place into oven for approximately 40 minutes. While the chicken is cooking  you may prepare  sauce. I have a sauce which I use two versions of; with or without mushrooms..


1 cup milk

2 tbsp butter

dash nutmeg

1 tbsp Old # 7 mustard

2  tbsp flour ( quick mix)

1/2 tsp cut parsley

2 tbsp sherry or triple sec

1/2 lb clean sliced mushrooms

Clean & pat dry chicken breast; cut each breast in half. You could make thin slices should you choose to roll the chicken after layered with ham and cheese. This recipe is time-saving in the prep work simply by cutting the breast in half… rub breast with mustard and sprinkle with garlic powder. Layer cheese over one side followed by ham; then another layer of cheese. I’m not a cheese lover so a slice and a half works for me; it still oozesout! Cover with the other half of breast. Next, rub filled breast with mayonnaise on both sides; then coat with bread crumbs.

Cheesy or not your choice!


Chicken Cordon Bleu Sauce

Combine sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan and slowly cook without bringing to a boil.. Should you choose to add mushrooms; saute them in butter. Add to pre-heated sauce . When chicken is brown transfer to serving dish and garnish with sauce.
