Chicken Breast with Cheese and Ham - French Cordon Bleu

Delicious chicken breast stuffed with cheese and ham, breaded with breadcrumbs, and fried in a pan.  The chicken breast turns out low-calorie, as the breading does not absorb fat, but it remains juicy.


CHICKEN CORDON BLEU

Ingredients (1 serving)

  • 1 Chicken Breast (200 g)
  • 1 Slice of Cheese (Emmental or any other of your choice)
  • 1 Slice of Ham
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper

FOR BREADING

  • 1 Egg
  • Flour
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable Oil

INSTRUCTIONS

Make an incision in the middle of the chicken breast with a sharp knife and make a pocket for stuffing. Salt and pepper chicken breast on both sides, salt, and pepper the pocket.

Put a slice of cheese on the ham, fold in half, and put the ham and cheese into the pocket.

Roll the breast in the flour, then dip in the beaten egg, then roll in ground breadcrumbs. Repeat breading in egg and breadcrumbs. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep pan, fry the chicken breast until golden brown, turn over. Fry the cordon bleu until golden brown on the other side, pouring oil from the pan. Remove the chicken breast on a paper towel, sprinkle with fleur de sel.

As a side dish, I fried small lettuce, adding cherry tomatoes, black olives, green onion, and fresh basil leaves.
