Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu

November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (115 votes)

To make traditional cordon bleu, you layer prosciutto (or other ham) and cheese in between thin slices of chicken or veal, then bread and sauté the whole stack. This quick, easy version keeps the flavors the same, but skips the fussy layering and breading steps. Serve with: Delicata squash and broccoli.

"This is one of my favorite Eating Well recipes ever! I used chopped Prosciutto bits and Gruyere, and baked it more like 15 mins. Everyone loves this and it is just too easy to make to not put it into regular rotation on our dinner menu....

Total Surprise!

I've never made Chicken Cordon Bleu before, so I was excited to see a quick way to make it. The flavor from this recipe was wonderful. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make. I really liked the cream cheese mixed with Gruyere cheese. And the breaded topping added a nice crunch. Definitely a recipe I will make again soon.

Yummy, easy, and fast!

I skimmed this recipe and thought is sounded like an easy dinner, and that's all. So while I was preparing to start the meal I reread the recipe, and was pleasantly surprised by the method. I think this is a great technique to have in you culinary arsenal because with a little adaptation this method will work for almost any peace of protein. With that said at this point I was very excited for dinner, it sounded so yummy. And it was very good, my husband-who is not a chicken kind of guy-really liked it! The only thing I will change the next time I make this is to make sure I get better breasts, and I will probably bound them out a little to be and even 1/2 inch all-round. All in all, very good, very quick, very easy, and I will make this again.

Quick, Easy, Versatile, Little Mess,

This is one of my favorite Eating Well recipes ever! I used chopped Prosciutto bits and Gruyere, and baked it more like 15 mins. Everyone loves this and it is just too easy to make to not put it into regular rotation on our dinner menu. Thank you for the awesome recipe!

Win! Family loved it. Easy to make. I used Canadian Bacon in place of the ham and it came out great. Definitely a keeper!

Awsome recipe...Tasted excellent. I did a few things different. I filleted my chicken breast and put the cheese mix on top and rolled it up into the chicken. And instead of frying it for 2 min. on the stove, I took my baking dish and rubbed with the remaining oil and and lightly covered the bottom with the bread crumbs, set the chicken in the dish and sprinkled the remaining bread crumbs on top and just put it directly into the oven. I used low fat cream cheese w/swiss. And followed everything else as directed.
