This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Chicken Cordon Bleu

One of my favorite things to make are chicken roulades. Which is basically just chicken rolled with some sort of yummy filling in the middle. Check out my broccoli and cheddar stuffed chicken, and my jalapeƱo popper chicken. This chicken cordon bleu was so easy to make- and so freaking good. I highly recommend you trying this out at home- wether it be for yourself or for family- your taste buds will thank you.


  • 1 package of thin sliced chicken breast (about 5)
  • 5-7 slices of deli ham
  • 5-7 slices of swiss cheese
  • flour
  • breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • seasoning salt
First you want to set up your breading station. One shallow bowl or dish for flour (with some seasoning salt), then a bowl for 2 eggs beaten with a little water, then a dish or bowl for breadcrumbs.

Place each individual breast in a large ziplock bag and seal it. lightly pound it out with a mallet until they are flattened into a large thin piece of chicken. Season with salt and pepper.

Lay the flat piece of seasoned chicken out and place 1 1/2 slices of ham down on top of it, then a slice of swiss cheese. 

Roll the chicken up into a ball, and try to tuck all of the filling inside. Toothpick it to keep it shut.

Dip the roll in the seasoned flour.

Then the egg.

Then the breadcrumbs. 

Be sure to make sure it is completely evenly covered with all of the ingredients. Then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Repeat with the rest of the chicken and ingredients.

Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. 

These were seriously so amazing. We served ours with creamed spinach and mushrooms over the chicken. The combination of these together was sublime. Give it a try and it will not disappoint. Plus every one will be really impressed, and think you spent hours and hours cooking this. Cheers!
