Chicken Cordon Bleu à la Adam

I do love to cook, so my boyfriend usually doesn't get a chance to do so... However, I am really lucky when he does cook, as he is an amazing cook :)

This time he decided to put his own spin on "Chicken Cordon Bleu" and it was so delicious...


Ingredients (for 2 people):

  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of prociutto (air dried ham)
  • 4 slices of pesto-parmesan ham (thinnly sliced from the Deli bar)
  • 4 slices of swiss cheese
  • Parmesan cheese (finely shredded)
  • Panco's breadcrumps (parmesan flavor works great)
  • 2 Eggs and 2 cups of Flour (for the breading process)
  • salt, pepper, red pepper to taste
  • oil 
  • side dishes: quinoa and baby carrots and peas



First, he cut open the chicken breasts and flipped the side open, so that it created a big flat surface. He pounded the chicken breast to thin cutlets by placing a plastic wrap on top of the chicken, so that the pounding does not damage it.
Then he placed the following slices on each cutlet, covering up as much of the cutlet as possible: 1 slice of Prociutto, 1 slice of Pesto-Parmesan Ham and 1 slice of Swiss Cheese. Now he rolled each cutlet and secured it with a toothpick.

He prepared 3 bowls for the breading process: 1 bowl with flower, 1 bowl with eggs, 1 bowl with Panco's breadcrumps. He beat the eggs and spiced them with salt, pepper and red pepper. Each cutlets was first dusted with the flour, covering all sides of it. Then it was dipped into the eggs. And lastly the cutlets were coated with the bread crumbs.

 Lightly spray a baking pan with oil and place the cutlets in there. Sprinkle some parmesan on top of them and bake them in the pre-heated oven at about 390 degree for about 20-25 min until they are golden brown. 

In the meantime, prepare the side dishes. My boyfriends prepared some quinoa and baby carrots and peas, but you can also serve it over some rice or salad.
