Chicken Cordon Bleu is a classic and indulgent dish consisting of tender chicken breasts stuffed with ham and cheese, breaded, and then baked or fried until golden brown and crispy. Here’s a description of this cheesy and crispy homemade recipe:


  1. Chicken Breasts: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are used as the base of the dish. They are typically pounded flat to an even thickness, making them easier to stuff and roll.
  2. Ham: Thin slices of ham, such as Black Forest ham or smoked ham, are layered over the chicken breasts. The ham adds a salty and savory flavor.
  3. Cheese: Slices of Swiss cheese or another type of melting cheese, such as Gruyère or mozzarella, are placed on top of the ham. The cheese provides creaminess and a gooey texture when melted.
  4. Breading: The stuffed chicken breasts are coated in a breadcrumb mixture, which is often seasoned with salt, pepper, and sometimes additional herbs and spices for extra flavor.
  5. Egg Wash: To help the breadcrumb mixture adhere to the chicken, an egg wash is used. The egg wash is made by beating eggs with a small amount of milk.

Cooking Process:

  1. Preparation: Chicken breasts are pounded flat between two sheets of plastic wrap to an even thickness, making them easier to work with. Then, each breast is seasoned with salt and pepper.
  2. Layering: A slice of ham and a slice of cheese are placed on top of each chicken breast. The chicken is then rolled up tightly around the filling, securing it with toothpicks or kitchen twine.
  3. Breading: Each stuffed chicken breast is dipped into the egg wash, ensuring it’s fully coated. Then, it’s rolled in the seasoned breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the chicken. This step creates the crispy outer coating.
  4. Frying or Baking: Chicken Cordon Bleu can be cooked using two methods: frying or baking. When frying, the stuffed chicken rolls are pan-fried in a skillet until they are golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. When baking, they are placed on a baking sheet and baked in the oven until the chicken is cooked and the breadcrumbs are crispy.
  5. Finishing: Once cooked, the toothpicks or kitchen twine are removed from the chicken rolls, and they are typically sliced into thick rounds for serving.

Serving: Chicken Cordon Bleu is often served hot and can be accompanied by a creamy sauce, such as a Dijon mustard cream sauce or a béchamel sauce, which adds extra richness and flavor to the dish. It is commonly served with side dishes like mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a simple green salad.

This homemade recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu combines the savory and cheesy goodness of the filling with the crispy exterior, creating a comforting and delicious meal that’s perfect for special occasions or a gourmet dinner at home.
