Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

12.10.10 by Jackie

Cordon bleu is a French chicken dish. I used boneless chicken thighs but you could use chicken breasts as well or even turkey. First, the meat is sliced in half, horizontally, so the chicken can be stuffed. A thin slice of cold cut smoked turkey (or traditionally, ham) and cheese are inserted into the slit. Then, the piece of chicken is transferred from an egg batter to a breading dish.

I pan-fried the chicken and finished the cooking in the oven. The chicken came out crispy on the outside and moist on the inside with cheese oozing onto the pan. The smoked turkey adds saltiness to the dish and pairs perfectly with the melting cheese and the milder chicken.
