H3 Recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu


A fan favorite at H3… Chicken Cordon Bleu


This generous entrée takes a little time to prepare but we know you will find it worth the effort. Get your butcher to butterfly and pound the chicken breasts and slice the Canadian bacon to save time.  Make a few extra servings for another day.  Serve with Dijon Mustard Sauce and Cauliflower-Potato Mousse.



6, 5 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, butter-flied and lightly pounded

3 ounces Swiss cheese, (buy un-sliced and cut into ½ ounce batons)

12, 1/4 ounce (very thin) slices Canadian bacon (get it sliced at the deli counter)

12 cups, cleaned fresh spinach, wilted and drained

2 cups Panko Japanese style bread crumbs seasoned with1 teaspoon each:

onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, dried parsley, salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper

1 cup egg whites or egg substitute



Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Clean chicken, carefully butterfly and lightly pound each breast (ask your butcher).  Place spinach in a large skillet (no oil or water needed), cover and gently heat, stir to wilt. Drain well and lightly chop.  Lay breasts out on a clean surface.  Lay 2 slices of Canadian bacon,  2 tablespoons of spinach and 1/2 ounce of  cheese on the edge of each breast.  Carefully wrap the chicken around the filling so there are no gaps in the edges.  Combine bread crumbs with seasonings in a large pie plate.  Place egg in a pie plate and carefully dip each breast in the egg.  Carefully roll each stuffed breast in the seasoned crumbs and transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until cheese oozes and breasts are browned.  Serve with Dijon Sauce and Potato-Cauliflower Mousse.
