Chicken Cordon Bleu

Haven't been around in a while so I thought that there was no time like the present to share a new recipe with everyone. One of the most basic things that we tend to cook with is chicken and for me and my family it seems like we are always cooking it the same way so tonight i decided that it was time to shake things up a little. So chicken Cordon Bleu was on the menu somethng that was brand new for me to try today. The best part about this recipe is that it was delicous and simple. It is always important to remember that you want your chicken to be done be for serving it, Always cook longer if you are unsure about it being done.

Meat Mallet
13 X 9 baking dish
3 medium size bowls
4-5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 eggs
¼ cup of milk
Salt and pepper
½ cup flour
1 cup of bread crumbs (more or less just eyeball it)
5-10 slices of ham sliced thin
8-10 slices of Swiss or provolone cheese sliced thin

Preheat oven to 350
Spray your baking dish with a cooking spray so that your chicken won’t stick. (You can even line it with tin foil first for easier clean up).
Using your meat mallet pound your chicken to about 1/2 -1/4 in thickness. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken then begin assembly.  Place 1 to 2 slices of ham on the chicken then on top of that place 2 pieces of cheese, then roll the chicken and secure in place with a tooth pick if needed. in a medium size bowl put your two eggs and milk mixture, in a second bowl your flour and in a third bowl your bread crumbs. Dip the chicken in the flour, then in the egg and milk mixture, finally coating it in your bread crumbs. ( if you used toothpicks to secure your chicken they are hard to get out after your done cooking so warn your guest or family to look out for them). Bake for 1 hour or until the insides are no longer pink and the juices run clear. Serve and enjoy.
