Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Yields: 4 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 10 Mins Cook Time: 15 Mins Total Time: 25 Mins
I love making Chicken Cordon Bleu which I usually bread, roll and bake. But I wanted something quick with the same ingredients and came up with this – lazy chicken cordon bleu made all in one skillet. This is great with roasted veggies or you can serve this with rice pilaf.

0/10 Instructions
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place the flour in a shallow dish. Lightly dredge the chicken with flour on both sides, shaking off the excess reserving the flour.
  • In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and 1 teaspoon of the reserved flour, whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter and add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and half of the chicken.
  • Cook 2 minutes on each side, until slightly golden, then transfer to a dish.
  • Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and remaining chicken and cook 2 minutes on each side.
  • Set aside on a dish with the other pieces of chicken.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the chicken broth mixture. Whisk scraping up any bits stuck to the pan then simmer 2 minutes to reduce slightly.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, top each piece with a slice of ham and a slice of swiss, cover the skillet and simmer medium-low for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese melts.
  • To serve use a spatula and transfer the chicken to each dish, spoon the remaining sauce over each piece.
