Chicken Cordon Bleu


Chicken Cordon Bleu

The French term cordon bleu is translated as “blue ribbon”. According to Wikipedia:  Cordon bleu “was originally a wide blue ribbon worn by members of the highest order of knighthood,  L’Ordre des chevaliers du Saint-Esprit, instituted by Henri III of France in 1578.

A cordon bleu or schnitzel cordon bleu is a dish of meat wrapped around cheese (or with cheese filling), then breaded and pan-fried or deep-fried.   The Cordon Bleu is usually  made with veal or chicken,  pounded thinly, then wrapped with cheese, and ham!  It is then pan-fried or baked to perfection!

Here is a recipe that your whole family will enjoy!  Great for those who are on a LCHF diet!  Cheers!

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves…
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices ham
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup heavy whipping cream
chicken-cordon-bleu2Pound chicken breasts if they are too thick. Place a cheese and ham slice on each breast within 1/2 inch of the edges. Fold the edges of the chicken over the filling, and secure with toothpicks. Mix the flour and paprika in a small bowl, and coat the chicken pieces.
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the chicken until browned on all sides. Add the wine and bouillon. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
Remove the toothpicks, and transfer the breasts to a warm platter. Blend the cornstarch with the cream in a small bowl, and whisk slowly into the skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened, and pour over the chicken. Serve warm.
