Easy chicken cordon bleu

You’ll need:

2 large fat chicken breast or (I sliced into three thin layers) or 3 regular size chicken breast cut in half. You want them pretty thin!

2 cups mozzarella cheese

6 slices Swiss cheese

6 ham slices (I used pre cooked sliced ham)

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

3 tbsp Dijon mustard

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp parsley flakes

4 garlic cloves chopped

4 tbsp olive oil

4 tbsp butter

3/4 cup flour

Salt and pepper

Okay I know this looks like a lot but and it’s going to be overwhelming but it’s not. First slice chicken into thin 1/4″ thick and 4oz pieces, roughly. (thin? you want them pretty thin)

Okay so salt and pepper and sprinkle each side with parsley flakes. Then pour flour onto a plate and dip each side of chicken into the flour and coat each side. In a cast iron skillet heat half the oil and half the butter. Add chicken and brown each side of chicken, remove from pan and set aside into plate. (Chicken won’t be cooked through so don’t eat at this point) next add remaining butter and oil and add chopped garlic and sauté a few seconds. Add in the ham (I have 6 slices of ham that i chopped into strips) let sauté 30-45 seconds to brown then remove and place with chicken in plate. Leave as much garlic as possible in pan. Then add in the remaining flour from the plate about 3 tbsp to butter in pan and mix well. In bowl mix chicken broth, Dijon and lemon juice mix well. In small increments pour in liquid and whisk vigorously until flour mixes with juice, make sure the flour isn’t clumping. Bring liquid to boil and then add back to pan the chicken and ham. Let boil 3 minutes then top each piece with Swiss cheese and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with parsley and place into oven at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted and begins to crisp on top. Remove from oven and place on top of couscous for serving. Take some of the sauce and spoon a few tablespoons over top.

I served with couscous, for that I mixed together 2 cups chicken stalk 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp Dijon mustard with 1 tbsp parsley flakes. Bring liquid to a boil and pour in 2 cups couscous and stir, remove from heat cover and ready in 3 minutes. (You must addv? these ingredients to shopping list on top as they are not factored in) ?

For asparagus cut off the ends and add to a pot steam in water for 4-7 minutes depending on how thick it is. Sprinkle with garlic salt, Parmesan cheese and squeeze 1/2 lemon over top. Serve hot! (Same for this add to shopping list! ??) Enjoy ?
