Chicken Cordon Bleu


Years ago, as newlyweds at BYU, I made my husband take a couples cooking class with me. Cooking together has been a favorite past time for us ever since. This is one of the recipes that we got from that class and it has remained a staple in our house. I have modified it over the years to accommodate our tastes. So, here is my version.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
4 slices provolone cheese (or whatever kind you like)
4 slices ham
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1 t poultry seasoning
1/4 t garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350. Pound chicken flat to an even thickness. Layer each flat chicken breast with a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. Roll the chicken breast up, securing as much of the cheese and ham inside as possible. I seal the ends with a toothpick. Combine the bread crumbs, seasoning and garlic salt together. Dip each chicken roll into the melted butter and then the bread crumb mixture. Arrange in a baking dish and cook for about 30 minutes at 350 until the chicken is cooked and the cheese melted. Top with this sauce recipe, if desired.

Veloute Sauce

2 T butter
2 T flour
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/8 t nutmeg

Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Add flour and stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add in chicken broth. Cook until boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Add in the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour some over each chicken roll.

  1. Hey, I'm hayley's little sister, Brynley. I don't know if you remember me from utah. Anyways, I love your blog. Also, I was wondering about your at home birth. My twins were a c/s and now I want to have a VBAC but only 2 doctors do them here in vegas. I'm thinking of doing an at home birth with a midwife. Tell me what I should know or what I should weigh out. Were you scared of a prolapsed cord or uterine rupture? Are you doing an at home birth with your third? email me back Brynleymosley@gmail.com
