A Favorite Recipe~Chicken Cordon Bleu~Homemade

This is one of my family's favorite meals. Its bursting with flavor and a great source of protein. Its not to expensive, and very easy to make. And it doesn't take that long to make.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

4-6  Fresh not frozen Chicken Breasts {I buy natural raised, hormone/antibiotic free from Woodman's}
4-6 pieces provolone {I buy Applegate Organics from Woodman's}
4-6 pieces of sliced Ham {I buy Applegate Organics Ham from Woodman's}
2-3 TBSP Frying/Cooking Olive Oil{Lighter Color} or Coconut oil

You will need a skillet pan and a baking dish that will fit all chicken, I use my cast iron because I can use it on the stove and in the oven.

Preheat Oven to 350

First you need to cut a slit in your chicken breasts from the side. Do not cut it all the way through but big enough to place the slice of hm and cheese inside.

After all your chicken breast are cut, get a piece of ham and cheese and put together. Fold in half, then stuff inside of your chicken breast when you made the cut.

You will want to warm up your skillet and allow the oil to get warm.

When you are done putting the ham and cheese inside of all the chicken breasts they are ready for the warmed up oil and pan. Place the chicken breasts in the pan and cook each side for about 1-2 minutes or until they are slightly browned.

Once they are browned on each side, either place your cast iron skillet right in the oven, or you will have to transfer your chicken breasts to a baking dish and bake in the oven for about 10-15 more minutes or until done.

Chicken is done when you cut into it and juices are clear or chicken meat is no longer clear looking inside.

You can make a refreshing salad as a side along with a baked potato. ENJOY!

I will post pictures next time I make it, which will be next week.
