OPEN FACED CHICKEN CORDON BLEU

OPEN FACED CHICKEN CORDON BLEU

Ingredient:

  • 2 chicken breasts (See Note 1)
  • 1/2 tsp each kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 4 slices deli ham (See Note 2)
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese (See Note 3)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pound chicken breast to flatten to 1/2″ or if large, slice horizontally. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Lightly dust each side with flour.
  2. In a oven proof skillet over medium high heat add the olive oil and butter. Quickly pan sear the chicken on both sides until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes each side. Turn off heat and brush each piece of chicken with divided mustard. Top each piece of chicken with divided sliced ham and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and top ham with Swiss cheese. Bake for another 5 minutes and serve immediately.

Notes

  • If large chicken breasts, slice horizontally for 4 pieces of chicken about 1/2″ thick.
  • I often times pick up lunch meat sliced ham and it is super thin and small. I use 3-4 pieces or use 1 large slice from deli.
  • I often times pick up lunch sliced cheese and it is super thin and small. I use 2-3 pieces or use 1 large slice from deli.
  • Enjoy!!
