Chicken Cordon Bleu

While thinking of Creme Brulee, it made me want Chicken Cordon Bleu.
Because I like to talk in a thick french accent, kiss my fingers and say magnifique.
Also it is fun to serve your family something that is fancy like this and then say Bon Apetit in my best Julia Childs accent (who loved that movie by the way, um that would be me!).
Here's the recipe:
  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • 1 Tbs butter
  1. Place each chicken breast half between two pieces of plastic wrap.
  2. Using the flat side of a meat mallet pound chicken lightly into rectangles about 1/8 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap.
  3. Place a slice of prosciutto and a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken. Fold in side edges, and roll up from the bottom end. Secure with toothpicks.
  4. In a medium skillet cook rolls in hot butter over medium heat for 20-25 minutes until no longer pink (170 degrees), make sure you turn them to brown them evenly. Remove toothpicks before serving.

I like to serve this with honey mustard for dipping...because it's yummy.
