Have you ever tried chicken cordon bleu in a restaurant? Well, if you have, you probably know that it’s one of the most delicious chicken dishes you’ll ever have. With this recipe you can make it at home in less than an hour.
For the chicken cordon bleu recipe you need:
4 6-oz skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
5 teaspoons melted butter
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup fat-free less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 thin slices prosciutto
1 minced large garlic clove
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Set the oven to 350 F degrees.
Heat the broth either in the microwave or on the stove. When it’s warm, you can add the garlic and butter in the bowl.
In another bowl, mix the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, breadcrumbs, and the paprika.
Get plastic wrap, and wrap the chicken breasts with it. Start pounding until they are 1/4 inches thick.
Season them with oregano, salt, and pepper. Add half a slice of prosciutto on each breast and 1 tablespoon of mozzarella cheese.
Roll the breasts and start placing them first in the broth, then in the breadcrumbs mix. You will need a baking dish to place the meat in.
When you’re done, cook in the oven for 28 to 30 minutes.
