Chicken Cordon Bleu

This is my husbands favorite chicken dish. I have never made it from scratch (just bought the ones made at the store), so this was an adventure. Well it turned out great and now is one of our favorites! My boys were licking the sauce pan..HAHA

You Will Need...
 - 3to4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
 - Flour
 - 1 TSP Paprika
 - 6 TSP Butter
 - Ham
 - Swiss Cheese Slices
 - 1/2 Water
 - 1 Chicken Bullion Cube
 - 1 Small Carton of Whipping Cream
 - Tooth Picks

Take your Chicken Breast and place in wax paper, smack it until its flat! HA I used the side of a small hammer! My kids got a kick out of it!



Place a couple thin sliced ham and Swiss in the middle of the Chicken. Roll up and secure with about 3 toothpicks! Combine about 1/2 cup flour and Paprika on a plate and lightly dredge your Chicken coating all sides! I held my chicken and rubbed the flour mixture over it with my hands!




Place 4 TBSP of Butter in skillet and warm over medium high heat. Place Chicken in the skillet and brown on all sides!


Remove and place on a plate. I washed my skillet here b/c I don't like the "burnt" taste of the butter, this is an optional step! Place skillet back over heat and add your remaining 2 TBS of Butter. Place Chicken and water/Bullion mixture in pot. Bring to a good simmer and cover for 20 to 30 minutes!



Now take about a TBS of "softened" butter and 1 TBS of flour and mix well. Remove Chicken and add butter mixture to skillet. Pour in cream and stir until thick! Place Chicken on your plate and pour Cream Sauce over it!!! ENJOY

Oh, my mom used to always make this--it was always a favorite. But then again, anything with cheese was always a favorite of mine. :D

Did the cheese stay in? That's always the hardest part for me with this recipe, not having a cheese blow-out. But it tastes great even if the cheese does escape. Thanks for sharing with the Hearth and Soul hop.

I do not eat pork but this looks amazing! I am going to try it and just leave out the ham :)
