Chicken Cordon Bleu is an all-time favorite. It is quick and simple to make, and if you use a good quality ham and cheese, it is packed with flavor. The recipe for the gourmet cheese sauce is in our next video.
Ingredients
  • 2 x Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Slices hickory ham
  • 30g Grated mature cheddar mixed with 30g grated mozarella
  • ½ Cup finely crushed corn flakes mixed with ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ Cup Tapioca flour (can substitute cornflour)
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 100g Butter
Instructions
  1. Roll out 40cm / 6 inches of cling wrap.
  2. Place one of the breasts in the center of the plastic, fold the plastic over.
  3. Using your meat mallet, tap the breast down until it is 6mm / ¼ inch thick.
  4. Repeat this with the second breast.
  5. Trim the slices of ham so that they are just slightly smaller than the chicken breasts.
  6. Place the hams slices on top of the breasts and top each with half of the cheese.
  7. Fold the chicken over to enclose the ham and cheese.
  8. Dredge the breasts in the tapioca flour making sure to get a good coating all over - especially the edges.
  9. Dredge the breasts in the egg, making sure to wet all of the tapioca flour.
  10. Dredge the breasts in the cornflake mixture to get a good thick coating.
  11. Transfer the coated breasts to a platter and allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  12. Heat your pan over medium heat and add the butter.
  13. When the butter starts to bubble, carefully slide the breasts into the pan.
  14. Fry the breasts for 4 minutes per side, then balance them on the fat edge and fry for a further minute.
  15. Remove the chicken from the pan and serve immediately with our gourmet cheese sauce and the accompaniments of your choice.
