Chicken Cordon Bleu

You’ll need chicken, slices of deli ham, swiss cheese, Ritz crackers, eggs, a rolling pin, and plastic wrap.

Slice one chicken breast in half to create two thin slices. Take one slice and place it in the plastic wrap.

With the rolling pin beat the chicken until nice and flat.

Unwrap the chicken, place a slice of ham and a piece of swiss cheese on top to the chicken. Then roll it all up.

It will look a little like this. But you’re not done yet.

Now beat the eggs together and crunch up the crackers until they are nice and fine. Dip the chicken in the egg and then roll it in the crackers.

They will look a little something like this. Now you’ll bake them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

i thought it was really cool how you showed the step by step pictures! i am excited to try this and will reccommend your site to my readers! :-)


I love these...and Albertson's will pound the chicken breast for you which makes it really nice to roll them!


These are yummy. A friend and I made them as part of our OAMC. We wrapped each one individually and then put them in gallon ziplock bags to freeze.
