Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Posted by Susie B. on February 3, 2014

Sure, deep fried chicken cordon bleu is a delicious classic. We've actually come to favor our baked version, coated in flavorful and crispy panko bread crumbs and cooked over Traeger's tasty wood smoke. For a bonus layer of flavor, mix equal parts mayonnaise and mustard and spoon on top of the chicken right after baking or serve on the side as a dipping sauce.



Prep Time: 25-30 minutes, plus an hour to chill
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes
Serves: 4
Recommended Pellets: Apple, Hickory, Oak

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, each
4 to 5 ounces, tenders removed
8 thin slices ham or prosciutto
1 cup baby spinach leaves
2 cups grated Swiss, gruyere, or mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup dry bread crumbs, preferably panko
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried
2 eggs

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Put each chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap that are 4 inches wider than the chicken breast. Evenly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet, being careful not to tear the chicken, until it is 1/4 inch thick. Remove the top piece of plastic wrap and discard.

Lay 1 to 2 slices of ham on the chicken breast to cover. Top with one-fourth of the cheese and spinach leaves.

Roll the chicken breast up like you would roll a burrito: Using the bottom piece of plastic wrap as an aid, fold the bottom of the breast up about an inch, then fold in the sides. Roll tightly. Wrap in the plastic wrap and tightly twist the ends to shape and compress the chicken. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

In the meantime, season the flour with salt and pepper and put in a shallow dish. Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, butter, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and put in a second shallow dish. Whisk the eggs in a third dish. Arrange on your workspace in this order: flour; eggs; bread crumbs. Put the prepared baking sheet next to the bread crumbs.

Remove the plastic wrap from the chicken breasts. Coat each lightly with flour, then dip in the egg. Finally, roll in bread crumbs, patting them on to make them adhere. Arrange on the baking sheet.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. Place the baking sheet with the chicken on the grill grate. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the coating is golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.

Serve whole, or slice crosswise into pinwheels with a sharp serrated knife.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
