Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu is my husband’s favorite thing, but with the weather so hot I can’t bring myself to turn on the oven. So we did some experimenting with grilling. Turns out, you can successfully grill the delicious little bundles!  It’s all the great taste of traditional chicken cordon bleu without the 350 degree house.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Ham
  • Swiss Cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Oven fry/Shake n’ Bake/Whatever breading you prefer

Directions:

  1. Slice the chicken breasts in half and then pound them out so they’re thinner and easier to roll. Cut the breasts into smaller pieces (size depends on how big you want your rolls)
  2. Put a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on the chicken
  3. Roll into a small bundle and dip in the beaten eggIMG_20150712_174406265
  4. Skewer onto a kebab stick to hold the bundle closed (repeat with the other pieces)
  5. Roll in breading. Sprinkle more breading on the places you can’t reach with rolling.IMG_20150712_174740820
  6. Grill over medium heat until the bundles are nicely browned and the chicken is cooked through.
