Description

Fast Prep, Big Flavours

This is my midweek version of Chicken Cordon Bleu. All the flavour, all the crunch, much faster to make and healthier too because its baked, not fried! Choose your method for breading / crumbing the chicken - use the Dredging Method or my super Shortcut Method (see photos in post for quick visual of difference). The Shortcut Method only coats the top and sides of the chicken, not the underside, but is much faster than the Dredging Method. Both are super crunchy and come out beautifully golden all over. Served with a gorgeous traditional Dijon Cream Sauce!

Ingredients

  • Panko breadcrumbs - ½ cup for Shortcut Method or 1 cup for Dredging Method
  • Oilspray
  • 2 small chicken breasts, around 6-7oz/180-210g each
  • 4 slices swiss cheese (Note 1)
  • 4 to 6 slices of ham, about 2.5oz/75g (Note 2)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp plain flour
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise, preferably whole egg
  • 1½ tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1½ tbsp butter
  • 1½ tbsp flour
  • 1¼ cups milk (Note 3)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  • Spread panko breadcrumbs on a baking tray and spray with oil. Bake for 3 minutes or until light golden. Remove and scrape into bowl straight away.
  • Cut a pocket into each chicken breast, as per the photo below.
  • Fold the cheese in half and place 2 pieces inside each pocket. Do the same with the ham. Close the pocket, seal with toothpicks.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Whisk egg and flour. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then into the panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to tray, spray with oil.
  • Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spread onto the top and sides of the chicken (not underside).
  • Sprinkle panko over the chicken, using your other hand to press the breadcrumbs onto the side of the chicken. Spray with oil.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown and just cooked through. Rest for 5 minutes before serving with the Dijon Cream Sauce.
  • Melt butter over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add flour and cook for 1½ minutes.
  • Add half the milk and whisk until the flour mixture is blended in.
  • Add remaining milk, mustard and cheese. Cook for 3 minutes, whisking constantly, until thickened. It will thicken as it cools.
  • Remove from heat, stir through thyme leaves and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chicken.
