Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Friday, October 1, 2010


My hubby loves Chicken Cordon Bleu. And it's the fried version.

When I saw a baked version on Angie's Recipes, I knew I just have to make this very soon.
I had a hard time trying to secure the ends, with a few time almost poking through my fingers.

I served this with a serving of salad with tomato cream and baked garlic fries. My husband said this tasted better than the local cafe that he frequents for this dish, saying this tasted like chicken. Not that the cafe didn't use chicken, hahaha, but the chicken was coated in so much batter and crumbs that the chicken doesn't seem to be the main star.


Here's what I used

2 Boneless Chicken whole legs
Salt, pepper and oregano
2 sliced of ham
2 slices of cheddar cheese (each broken up into 4 long strips and stacked)

1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 Tbsp finely grated parmesan
1 Tbsp butter, melted
2 Tbsp chicken broth (I used instant noodles chicken flavour seasoning, just 1/2 tsp mixed with water)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 180/200C.
2.Lightly flatten the boneless whole legs with the back of a cleaver or a meat mallet.
3. Sprinkle some salt, pepper and ground oregano onto chicken.
4. Put a piece of ham, then a piece of stacked cheese onto each chicken leg.
5. Roll up and secure ends with toothpicks.
6. Mix broth with garlic.
7. Mix bread crumbs and parmesan
8. Roll chicken into chicken broth and then the breadcrumb mixture.
9. Drizzle melted butter over chicken.
10. Bake chicken for 20-30 minutes or until chicken looks golden and crispy.
11. Remove toothpicks before serving.

I like to make chicken de bleu too especially for weekend. The ham and cheese make it so yummy!

Little Inbox October 1, 2010 at 11:19 AM  

I want to make this too! Baking! The method that I prefer. The color looks so nice. Some serve in restaurant are over-fried.

Jess @ Bakericious October 1, 2010 at 11:29 AM  

Wendy, I love this too but never think of making. You and Angie are tempting me, I should go get hold of ingredients and make it this wkend or may be next lah since my husband is not feeling well :). Wendy, I am hungry now, can share some with me leh...

Your hubby is right. Home cooked food is always the best food, especially from our loved ones. :)

Kathleen October 1, 2010 at 2:08 PM  

This is SO SO SO yummilicious. Your posts are always so interesting! Hope I can try this soon

I've only tasted the one from Secret Recipe, it's so...erm...I don't know...maybe too meaty or what...can't be able to describe it. Yours looks smaller. rite?

jess @ j3ss kitch3n October 1, 2010 at 2:36 PM  

one of my favorites! but stopped eating this to watch my weight haha i guess a baked version would be my excuse for indulging in this!

DG October 1, 2010 at 3:59 PM  

Wendy!
I just finish my lunch, now you make me hungry again :) Like to see the cheese portion melted out with the meat ... yum yum ...

Clare @ Mrs Multitasker October 1, 2010 at 5:06 PM  

This looks like the kind of thing my husband would absolutely love! Thanks for the recipe!

Kitchen Corner,
Oh you make this quite often?
Can share with the the tips on wrapping the ham and cheese?? I really need to improve on that



Little Inbox,
Sometimes those from restaurants smell rancid :(
Yucks.



Jess Bakericious,
Sure, the screen is all urs to eat from, hahaha!!
Eh, ur hubby not well ah. Then dun make this first. Heaty leh!!



Belly Good Cooking,
Haha, wish that he's say that for all my cooking, ahah! :)




Kathleen,
Thanks :)

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 1, 2010 at 5:15 PM  

Meldylocks,
Mine is like at the size of a sausage bun looo.
Long.. I really need to improve on the wrapping part. Very very worried about the cheese oozing out.



Jess Kitchen,
Haha, oh yes, a lot friendlier to the waistline.



DG,
Same goes for me.
Anything with cheese, the best part besides eating it, is watching it ooze



Clare,
U're welcomed :)

oh i love love chicken cordon bleu too!! there's 1 place that serves pretty a pretty good one.. I shall make, when I'm..... through the "to make" list Hahaha

did u use panko or the normal bread crumbs?

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 1, 2010 at 8:10 PM  

Swee San,
Err... what's panko?
I bought mine from the bakery supplies shop, and it's like very small bits of broken up bread, not like biscuit crumbs.

Min October 1, 2010 at 9:07 PM  

I like chicken cordon bleu, but haven't tried making it myself. I like those with a lot of cheese inside :)

lena October 1, 2010 at 9:47 PM  

i'm just imagining tough rolling up the chicken with the ham and cheese slices but you rolled it up very nice and balanced.

Blessed Homemaker October 1, 2010 at 11:10 PM  

I saw this in a Chinese program (can't rem which one though) and it's also a baked version. I didn't have time to copy the recipe then, so glad to find it here. I've got all the ingredients at home, just need some motivation to start cooking.

Bakertan October 1, 2010 at 11:46 PM  

hey wendy,

this is golden, crispy and cheesey.. yummy! I am a chicken corden bleu lover and this is definitely a great recipe for me. whats more, its a baked dish and it gives me yet another excuse to use my oven =]

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 2, 2010 at 12:05 AM  

Min,
I love it with lots of cheese too :)


Edith,
Thanks



lena,
I only showed u the nicer one, the other roll, wasn't done all that nicely.



Blessed Homemaker,
A good alternative to the hated deep frying leh ? Hahaha



Bakertan,
Haha, ovens are meant to be used, so use them!!
But electricity bills hurts:) Hahah!!!

Angie's Recipes October 2, 2010 at 2:19 AM  

wow Wendy...I must say that yours looks so much more pleasant and delicious than mine! I am so glad that your family enjoyed it.
I wish you a wonderful weekend!
Angie

pigpigscorner October 2, 2010 at 4:22 AM  

I bookmarked this too! Have to make this soon!

Karen October 2, 2010 at 6:21 AM  

This looks delicious! I love that it's baked...so much easier than frying!
Beautiful photos, too!

HomeKreation October 2, 2010 at 7:55 AM  

My children love this. We normally ordered from Secret Recipe. Never thought of making it myself... may be I'll try one day after seeing yours... you are always been inspiring

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 2, 2010 at 12:46 PM  

Angie,
Haha, no way!!!! Yours is definately much much better.


Pigpigscorner,
Hope u and wildboar will like this :)



Karen,
Yup,
I do prefer baking more than frying for this.



Home Kreation,
It's not too hard to make, but every easy to finish up. Sometimes I do feel, haiya, just go out and eat this, Hahaha!!

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi October 2, 2010 at 7:35 PM  

Wendy, of course la! Those sold outside sure will have less meat! Siapa mau rugi? Nothing beats home-made! Good stuff, always.

Agreed! Chicken cordon bleu sounds like a good one. I hope I'll get down to make the dish someday once I'm settled down. Your green curry first though. You know how many recipes I've bookmarked!!!??? Argh!

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 2, 2010 at 9:48 PM  

PeiLin ah..
Those outside look double of mine.
They contain the same amout of chicken, but heavily coated with battter and crumbs. You will need to eat 2 of mine to have the same "fillingness" compared to one from the outside.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) October 4, 2010 at 5:09 PM  

baked version, sound better than fry one, i must try this soon.

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more October 5, 2010 at 12:28 AM  

Sonia,
Don't forget to let me or Angie know if u like this

HK Choo October 25, 2010 at 3:16 PM  

Just want to let you know I tried this and love it a lot. Terima kasih for sharing :)
