Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

A dear friend from my high school days shared this recipe with me. You might think it sounds complicated to make, but it's quite easy once you've tried it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 35 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 4 thin slices fully cooked ham
  • 4 thin slices Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white grape juice
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Top each with a slice of ham and cheese; fold to fit. Roll up tightly and secure with toothpicks. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and paprika. Coat chicken with flour mixture.
  • 2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Cook chicken for 5 minutes on each side or no longer pink. Add grape juice and bouillon. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender.
  • 3. Remove chicken and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine cream and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.
