Chicken Cordon Bleu
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 4 thin slices fully cooked ham
- 4 thin slices Swiss cheese
- 8 bacon strips
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/8-in. thickness; spread butter on the insides. Sprinkle with thyme. Top with a slice of ham and cheese; roll up tightly. Wrap each with 2 slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
- 2. In a small bowl, beat eggs and milk. Place flour in another bowl. Combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder, oregano and cheese. Dip each chicken breast into egg mixture; dip into flour to coat. Dip each again into egg mixture, then coat with crumbs.
- 3. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

Jul 20, 2019I wish there was 10 stars because that's what this recipe deserves. My husband could not stop saying yum, or my this is great and on and on. This recipe is a keeper for us the added bacon was an excellent choice. The Cordon Bleu that I have had wasn't this flavorful. Easy recipe and it's a keeper for us! Jim, if Florida was next to Idaho I'd find you and give you a great big hug.
Apr 13, 2019This was so good I made it two weeks in a row. I like this recipe and find it was very easy to double and freeze some for another time.

very good and very easy. I used chicken thighs, and missed the step about double dipping so it was only dipped once but still very good.
