Chicken Cordon Bleu has long been a family favorite.  It was the meal I requested from my mom for every birthday and special occasion.  As much as I adore the original, it can be a little time consuming.  On busy nights when everyone is craving Chicken Cordon Bleu, this is the recipe I turn to.

It’s amazingly easy to prepare and has all the wonderful flavors of the classic version of Chicken Cordon Bleu.

As delicious as the classic but a whole lot easier! Your family will love this Inside Out Chicken Cordon Bleu!

Ingredients

  • 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4-8 slices of ham
  • 4-8 slices Swiss cheese
  • Gravy:
  • drippings
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken breasts in half crosswise. If they are really large chicken breasts, cut again lengthwise. Combine the flour and paprika in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a saute pan over medium heat and add the olive oil and bouillon cube and stir until well combined. The butter should be bubbling slightly.
  3. Dredge the chicken strips in flour mixture and add to the pan. Saute for about 2-3 minutes per side until nicely browned. Chicken can be sauteed in batches, just remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil.
  4. Once all chicken has been cooked, return to pan and pour wine over the chicken and place the lid on the pan. Let the chicken continue to cook for 4-6 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Remove the lid and layer with ham first and then top with swiss cheese. Fold or tear the ham and cheese so that it fits over the chicken strips. Replace the lid and continue cooking until cheese is melted.
  6. For the gravy:
  7. Remove the chicken from the pan and place on plate. Tent with foil. Another option is to place chicken in a warm oven.
  8. Bring the contents of the pan to a simmer. Combine whipping cream and corn starch by whisking together and add to the pan. Continue whisking and bring gravy to a simmer. Serve over Chicken Cordon Bleu and mashed potatoes if you desire.

    I read the cmments you all made and I am kinda envious of you all! I am still on my second set of pots and pans from garage sale finds…

  11. These instructions are incorrect. If you look, there is a step completely left out and one is duplicated. I was going to make this for dinner tonight and had to wing it due to the missing instructions…hope it turns out…
