This past Monday was MyHandsomeHusbands birthday. As tradition goes around here, I asked what he would like for his birthday dinner. Homemade Won Tons is what he requested.
“I’ll just roll up the my sleeves,
line up my kids at the bar to help me
and start building won tons.”
….is what I thought.
Little did I know my time would be spent searching no less than three grocery stores for Won Ton Wrappers.
Apparently there is a Won Ton Wrapper shortage.
I know….scary times are upon us.
What IS the world coming to?
This Chicken Cordon Blue has been one of MyHandsomeHusbands favorites for years. I figured the blessed recipe could act as understudy for the ever wonderful Homemade Won Tons.
There were no complaints.
This is a very simple and healthy way to make
Chicken Cordon Bleu.
I served it with Rice Pilaf,Glazed Carrots with Rosemary and a loaf of Fabulous French Bread I had hanging out in the freezer.
I hope YourHandsomeSpouse enjoys it as much as mine did!
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Yield: 6 Servings
Time: 10 min. prep + 60 minutes baking
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
5 chicken breasts
1 C Italian bread crumbs
5 slices deli ham
5 slices Swiss cheese
2 cans cream of chicken soup
3 T sour cream
1 T butter
1. Fillet your chicken breasts. That means stick a sharp knife into the top of the breast and through the middle, cutting it into two pieces. This will give you smaller pieces of chicken to work with.
2. Cut your ham and cheese into 10 pieces as well. I usually purchase both my deli ham and Swiss cheese at Costco.
3. Place a piece of ham and a piece of Swiss cheese in the center of each slice of chicken and roll it up.
4. Place your Italian bread crumbs into a pie plate and dip each chicken wrap into the crumbs.
5. Place the breaded chicken into a sprayed 9×13 pan.
6. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Remove the tin foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
7. When the chicken in almost done combine the sauce ingredients in a medium sized sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until all ingredients are warmed through. Serve over the top of the chicken.
