Cordon Bleu – My version

This is one of Brandon’s favorite things that i make. Despite its fancy name,  this is just a delicious baked chicken dish.  It’s a lot easier than you may think!

 

Cordon Bleu- Ana’s version

Serves 4

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. (defrosted)
Sliced deli Ham
Sliced Jack cheese
About 8 Slices of bacon
Salt and pepper
(you’ll need some tooth picks)

So, first you want to slice the chicken breasts in half- longways.

Then you are going to put the chicken into a large plastic bag and pound it out with a hammer. Now is the time to let out all your stress from the day!

Now they should look pretty even in thickness.

Wrap a slice or two of bacon around the chicken and tooth pick it.

Place the rolled chicken in a glass baking dish and cook at 350 for 25 -30 minutes. I always cut into one and if the juices run clear its usually done.

Here’s the finished result! I topped it with a little crispy sage and served roasted green beans and risotto on the side.
I hope you enjoy!
