Chicken Cordon Bleu

I've created this blogspot just now. And my purpose is to start posting all the recipes I've tried to cook based on millions of recipes you can see over the Internet. So, since this is my first, let's get started. I've seen this recipe from this link. I've just followed the Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe, not the mushroom sauce. Regarding the measurements, I've just tweaked most of them because I need 10 Cordon Bleu pieces. Here are the steps and my actual cooking procedures (Thanks to my wife, Belle, for taking the pictures :)):





  1. First of all, you need to prepare all your ingredients. Here they are:
    10 boneless chicken breast halves, skin removed

    Photobucket
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    2 eggs, beaten

    Photobucket
    1 cup milk
    10 pieces King Sue hawaiian ham, cut each in half
    10 slices Eden cheddar cheese
    Photobucket
    all-purpose flour

    Photobucket
    whole wheat bread crumbs

    Photobucket

  2. Place each piece of chicken inside a food storage bag. Pound gently to flatten, using a smooth side of meat mallet.

  6. Place 2 pieces of ham and cheese in the center of each flattened piece of chicken.

  7. Fold ends over ham and cheese. Roll up and secure them with toothpicks.

  8. Dredge chicken in the 1/3 cup flour.

  9. Dip it again in the egg-milk mixture.

  10. roll them in bream crumbs to coat well

  11. Place chicken rolls on a container. cover and refrigerate them (I did it overnight).

  12. Heat oven for about 10 minutes

  13. Place the chicken rolls inside the oven for 30 minutes or until then bread crubs turns brown.

Things I've considered:

I've tried to oven the chicken roll pieces to save oil plus the fact that it is healthier than the fried version. The difference is, it's not that crispy but it's moist and tender.

Expenses(approximate since I didn't consumed all of the ingredients):

  • King Sue Hawaiian Ham (consumed 1 pack of it at Php42.25)
  • Eden Cheese (consumed almost half of it at around Php50.00)
  • Alaska Evaporada (consumed 1 cup of it at around Php10.00)
  • Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs (consumed half of it at around Php18.00)
  • Glad Storage Lock Bag (consumed 1 piece of its 20 pieces at around Php11.30)
    Queen All-Purpose Cream (consumed half of it at Php24.30)
  • Chicken breast fillet (consumed all of it at Php180.84)
  • 2 Eggs (consumed all of it but I didn't bought it. I've just got them from our ref. :D around Php10.00 @ Php5.oo each)
  • salt and pepper (also, I've got this one from our kitchen. cost at around Php5.00)

Total Estimated Price for all the consumed ingredients:

Php351.69

Actual Expense:

  • King Sue Hawaiian Ham (Php42.25)
  • Eden Cheese (Php97.75)
  • Alaska Evaporada (Php21.20)
  • Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs (Php36.00)
  • Glad Storage Lock Bag (Php113.00)
  • Queen All-purpose Cream (Php48.60)
  • Chicken breast fillet (Php180.84)
  • 2 Eggs (I used 2 from our ref :))
  • salt and pepper (also, I've got this one from our kitchen :))

Total Actual Price:

Php539.64

It's ok to have excess ingredients. You might used them again on your next recipes. But since this is my first recipe I've followed, I think I've learned how to estimate closer on what I might consume during the actual cooking. Ok, now try it on your own. Good Luck! :)

  5. I wonder for the all purpose cream expenses. Did you use condensed milk, or evaporated milk? The picture shows an evap milk mixed with beaten eggs.
