Foodie Friday: Chicken Cordon Bleu and Sauce

Whoa Friday already! Is the time just flying by or is it me? Had some last minute request and there is a stomach bug going around, hubby caught it and I cleaned/washed like crazy to make sure I didn't! Knock on wood I am safe :)

Here is today Foodie Friday, Chicken Cordon Bleu with Sauce. So yummy and easy! I am all about quick recipe that I can toss in the oven and multi task.

Chicken, Ham, Cheese, Bread Crumbs and Tada! 

yum yum!
Don't forget the sauce! 

Chicken Cordon Bleu

3 Chicken Breast
10-12 Slices of Deli Ham
3-4 Slices of Swiss Cheese
1 Cup Italian Bread Crumbs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease baking dish. 
3. Cut chicken breast in halves to make them thinner, so you have a total of 6 chicken breast. 
4. Place the chicken in the backing dish. 
5. Layer ham and then cheese. 
6. Sprinkle bread crumbs over entire dish.
7. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through! 

*Chicken produces a lot of moisture so I added some flour to suck up that moisture.
*If your family isn't a fan of swiss cheese feel free to switch to one you all like :) 

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sauce

2 Tablespoons of Butter
2 Tablespoons of Flour
1 Cup of Milk
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese

1. Melt butter in a small pan.
2. Add flour and stir for about 2-3 minutes. 
3. Add milk and continue stirring. 
4. Add salt and keep stirring! 
5. Sauce will begin to thicken, it should take less than 5 minutes. 
6. After sauce is thick remove from heat. 
7. Add mustard, worcestershire sauce and parmesan cheese.
8. Continue stirring till everything is mixed well together. 
9. Tada all done and serve with chicken cordon bleu.

*This recipe makes a lot for just 2 people, so I would probably cut it in half next time I make. 
*This recipe is an altered version from The Girl Who Ate Everything. She also has a different take on how to make chicken cordon bleu.
