Chicken Cordon Bleu

Print
The word "Cordon Bleu" is a french term that can be translated as "blue ribbon" and with this in mind, this recipe is certainly worthy of a blue ribbon. Try this savory French dish that combines chicken, ham, paprika and Swiss cheese in a breaded and sauteed outer shell smothered in a creamy white wine sauce.

Ingredients

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 slices of Swiss cheese
6 slices of ham
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

1. Pound chicken breasts if they are too thick. Place a cheese and ham slice on each breast within 1/2 inch from the edges. Fold the edges of the chicken over the filling, and secure with toothpicks. Mix the flour and paprika in a small bowl, and coat the chicken pieces
2. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the chicken until browned on all sides. Add the wine and bouillon. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear
3. Remove the toothpicks, and transfer the breasts to a warm platter. Blend the cornstarch with the cream in a small bowl, and whisk slowly into the skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened, and pour over the chicken. Serve warm.
