I’m so excited to show you how EASY it is to make Chicken Cordon Bleu ! This recipe is inspired by the method by husband grew up eating, which includes crushed cornflakes as the coating. It’s absolutely delicious and I especially love that I can make it ahead of time, for company.
How to make Chicken Cordon Bleu:
Prep chicken breasts. Use a sharp knife to cut each chicken breast in half horizontally to create two chicken breast halves (or buy already cut chicken breast halves). Place between two sheets of plastic wrap and use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound them into thin, even pieces (be careful not to pound so hard that the meat tears.).

Top with ham and cheese. Top each pieces of chicken with a slice of ham and a ham handful of shredded cheese.


  • 500g of chicken breast
  • 170g ham
  • 120g of cheese
  • 1 egg breadcrumbs salt vegetable oil




1. Cut the chicken breast and fill it with cheese and ham

2. Close the pocket, then dip the chicken packages into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs, pressing lightly to help the crumbs stick to the chicken.

3. Fry for 7 minutes (or bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden at 190°C).
