This is an easy version of a French classic. It tastes wonderful with roasted vegetables.
Pound out chicken breasts to approximately 1/2 " thickness, so that they may be rolled. Season both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Place 1 slice of ham and 1 slice of provolone cheese on top of each chicken breast. Roll each chicken breasts so that the ham and provolone cheese is enclosed in the roll.
In a medium sized bowl or pie plate, make an egg wash by whisking an egg and the teaspoon of water. In a separate bowl or pie plate, lay out your bread crumbs.
Take each rolled chicken breast & roll first in the egg wash and then in the bread crumbs to completely cover. Set aside. Enclose with toothpicks at this point, if you wish, but be sure to remove toothpicks before serving.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
While oven is preheating, preheat a medium sized saute pan on the stove and heat up the butter and oil. Saute the chicken breasts for approximately 10 minutes, turning so that all sides begin to turn a golden brown. Transfer the chicken breasts to a baking sheet and finish off in the oven for approximatly 15-20 minutes or until golden and juices are running clear.
While chicken is finishing off in the oven, make a white wine sauce, by adding the dry white wine, cornstarch, cream & chicken broth granules to the pan that the chicken was started in. Whisk constantly for a few minutes to allow flavors to develop and for the sauce to thicken. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve with roasted vegetables.

jules403 2y agoWOW! This was one of the best recipes I've ever found and made from this site! I used Swiss cheese instead. Delicious.
Jennijen2021 2y agoMy husband loved it but my daughter and I did not.. Overall it is a good recipe and it was tasty I guess I'm just not a fan of chicken cordon bleu.

1horse4me 3y agoMade this last night using Provolone and Swiss Cheese. I used fresh garlic rather than powder and 1/2 Panko and 1/2 bread crumbs. For the sauce I use chicken stock and fat free half n half. Paired this with some fresh asparagus from the garden in Balsamic Butter and Roasted Red Potatoes with garlic and fresh rosemary! Love this dish!
1horse4me 3y agoAbsolutely love this recipe! Have made this several times and each time it is wonderful!
