Super Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

If you are a busy college student who LOVES food but doesn’t like spending $ on a meal, this recipe is for you.  Even if you have ZERO experience in the kitchen, you will fool all your friends with this impressively delicious dish.

I adapted the recipe from The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life (which, btw, my friends make fun of me for reading) and it has never failed of all the times I’ve made it.

tenderize chicken & arrange with one slice of ham & swiss cheese, then roll and pin with a toothpick

cordon_blue2
combine cream of mushroom soup & sour cream in a separate bowl

cordon_bleu3
place chicken a baking dish & cover with sauce mixture.
cover with tin foil, and place in the oven (heated to 350 degrees) for one hour.

cordon_bleu4
save extra sauce from the oven & use as gravy with chicken.  serve with something green and something starchy.  we chose salad & wild rice. but i bet potatoes would pair AMAZINGLY with it.

full recipe:

Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu (adapted from The Girl’s Modern Guide to Life)

Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 slices ham
4 slices swiss cheese
10.4 oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 c (8 oz) sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cut excess fat from chicken breasts, lay flat & lightly pound them with a meat tenderizer.  Place one slice ham and one slice swiss cheese on top, then roll with the ham & cheese inside (starting with the narrowest end) and pin with a tooth pick. Transfer them to an oven-safe baking dish.
3. In another bowl, stir cream of mushroom soup & sour cream together, then pour over chicken.
4. Cover baking dish with tin foil & bake it in the oven for 1 hour (or until chicken is tender and no longer pink inside)
5. Serve with any sides you’d like…I bet potatoes & salad would make  a great combo.

Enjoy!
