Cordon Bleu

I’ve always liked eating Cordon Bleu, and since I get to play cook every Sunday, and nobody else in the family can cook it, I gave it a try 😛  It wasn’t easy since it was my first time but it was a success! 😀

Ingredients:

Cordon Bleu

  • boneless and skinless chicken breast halves
  • ham
  • cheese slices
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small can of milk
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • toothpicks

Sauce:

  • cinnamon
  • milk
  • flour
  • oregano
  • butter
  • pepper

Procedure:

  1. Flatten each chicken into 1/4 inch thickness (fillet-style)
  2. Top with a slice of ham, then with cheese.
  3. Roll it up and secure with toothpicks. (I had a hard time rolling it well. I used a lot of toothpicks too xD)
  4. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper.
  5. In another bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of milk and the egg. Place the bread crumbs in another bowl.
  6. Pour the rest of the milk into a pan, add a bit of water. Bring to a boil.
  7. Simmer the chicken roll until chicken turns white. After which, set aside and let it cool on a plate.
  8. When sufficiently cooled, dip chicken roll into the flour mixture, then in the egg mixture; roll in crumbs.
  9. Deep fry till golden brown. Cut and serve with sauce.

sauce:

  1. Using the leftover milk-soup used in simmering, melt the butter, add a dash of cinnamon, pepper, oregano, and flour to thicken. Season it to your taste. (Sorry can’t be more accurate than that, I just put in a bit of whatever I saw and hoped it tasted good, which it did!)
