Cooking with Kaaleen: Chicken cordon bleu


It’s a dish I’ve seen on TV a billion times – chicken cordon bleu. It’s a classic recipe, that I’ve decided have some fun with.

Instead of using egg wash and breadcrumbs, I made this chicken cordon bleu recipe easy, healthy and delicious.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 4 slices of black forest ham
  • 4 slices of Canadian Swiss cheese
  • Salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
  • 1/4 of a pack of shake and bake

What to do:

Step one: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step two: Dry chicken breasts with paper towel and season with salt, pepper and paprika on both sides.

Step three: Place ham and cheese slices on flattened chicken breasts.

Step four: Roll together from thickest end to thinnest, use a toothpick or two to keep the roll together.

Step five: Place rolls one at a time in a bag with shake and bake, shake the bag until fully coated.

Step six: Place rolls onto baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

The recipe was so easy to make (and SO GOOD)! My mom and I decided to have it three times in one week. If you’re having friends over for dinner – making this recipe one time serves four people. Mmm!

The dish goes well with baked carrots, potato wedges or even a simple green salad.
