Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu with Cheese Sauce





Cordon Bleu ( my sons favorite!)

4 chicken breast sliced** thin about 1/4 inch, should have at least 12 pieces depending on breast size.. use meat pounder to make thinner
2 pieces of ham
1 container spreadable cream cheese

** Note if chicken is slightly frozen is much easier to cut even and thin...

In a saucepan add:

(This is the Sauce you will pour over the chicken and then bake covered on 350* for 1 hour.)
4 slices of swiss cheese
1/4 pound of  extra sharp cheddar
4 tablespoons of cream cheese
1 cup of half and half or heavy cream
1/4 cup milk
1/2 stick of butter or margarine
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of feta
2 tablespoons bleu cheese
1/4 teaspoons  of each, garlic powder, salt, white pepper, cayenne pepper and parsley.
Heat till melted set aside.

Take each slice of raw chicken, spread with cream cheese and lay a piece of ham on the chicken, roll up. Use tooth picks to hold together ... Roll each piece in flour. Heat oil for frying.
In a fry pan with hot canola oil, lightly brown each piece of chicken, place in a 13/9 baking pan lightly greased with cooking spray . Pour sauce over chicken and sprinkle with Italian flavored bread crumbs. Bake for 1 hour until bubbly and thickened....
