Chicken Cordon Bleu

One of my all-time favorite meals is Chicken Cordon Bleu.  It is a classic!  

Growing up, this is one of the recipes my mom always had in the dinner rotation. Really though, what is not to love about the combination of cream cheese, chicken and bacon all wrapped up together?!  The flavors are DELICIOUS! It is so easy to make and everyone loves it!  This is how my family does Chicken Cordon Bleu and now I am sharing the recipe with you! Enjoy it!


mouthwatering isn’t it?!….

  1. Pound both sides of chicken to about 1/2 inch thick. This helps tenderize the chicken and helps to make rolling it up easier.
  2. Layer 1 slice Swiss cheese, 1 thin slice of ham and 1/2 inch slice of cream cheese onto each piece of chicken.
  3. Roll up each piece of chicken and wrap each chicken roll with a slice of bacon.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 1 hour. (until chicken and bacon are both cooked through)

    This looks amazing! I love Cordon BLeu, but this is a slightly different twist on what my mother use to make. I love the bacon wrap, I am definately trying this. Can I make it up the day before and then put it in the oven the next day? Thanks for the great recipes!

    This looks amazing – I have never made Chicken Cordon Bleu as it looked too time consuming to me – but I am going to pin this to make it soon. Thank you for the inspiration and helping me get out of my comfort zone!!
