    Default OK, Chicken Cordon Bleu

    I made it today with some chix breasts and I used bleu cheese crumbles
    w/ a slice of american.

    It wasn't bad. I'd always assumed that people who used swiss and
    american were doing it wrong. But, the bleu cheese did kind of
    overpower the ham.

    Please advise.

    As far as I know, chicken cordon bleu, at least in America, is made with
    chicken, swiss cheese and ham.

    This is how I make mine:

    I always butterfly the chicken breast, pound the chicken breast flat, place
    swiss cheese on both halves of the breast, then add my ham on top of the
    cheese. I fold the breast over, coat the whole thing in flour, dredge it in
    egg, and then press it into seasoned breadcrumbs. Saute' in olive oil and a
    little bit of butter.

    Sometimes, I make a swiss cheese-bourbon sauce to go over the chicken and
    sometimes I just serve it plain. In any case, I've never had a person say
    that the way I make my chicken cordon bleu was inedible - I've actually made
    it for the head chef of a prestigious restaurant on Maui who claimed it
    tender, juicy and delicious; gosh was I nervous at that serving! Yikes!

    In any case, this is how I do it and it works for me! (Oh, and if you put
    the cheese down *after* the ham, it tends to seep out during the saute'.
    Don't ask me how I know this.)

    Hope this helps!

    I almost did that, except I wish I would have thought to butterfly
    them. I just pounded the whole breast thin b/t saran wrap and used
    toothpicks to hold them together.

    That sounds good. If anyone speaks French, why do they call it "bleu"
    if it doesn't get bleu cheese?

    I don't speak French, but "cordon bleu" means "blue ribbon", not "cheese
    that is blue". The dish is named after an award.

    Army recipe, I'm pretty sure. That's how I've always made it. Half
    slice swiss, half slice american, half slice ham. Roll, toothpick,
    flour, egg, bread crumbs, brown, finish in the oven. Of course, I
    finish in the pan at home.

    That's an ARMY recipe? Now we'll be hearing all about how the Navy
    does it differently.

    Cordon Bleu means "blue ribbon"
    I believe it is named after the cooking school, not cheese.

    I suspect they borrowed the term.

    cordon bleu

    1. a first-rate cook, or one worthy to be the cook of the
    cordons bleus, or Knights of the Holy Ghost, a
    distinguished order of French knights, famous for their
    good dinners.

    2. the blue ribbon worn by the Knights of the Holy Ghost.

    3. [one entitled to wear the cordon bleu[2].] a person of
    high distinction.

    I once had a dish at an Italian restaurant that was somewhat like
    Cordon Bleu (they didn't call it that so don't anyone get riled up). It
    had chicken breast pounded out, but skin on. It was rolled up with
    proscuitto and some sort of Italian cheese, maybe provolone. Then it
    was grilled and probably finished in the oven so the skin outside was
    crispy. It was served with a bit of tomato sauce. Very good.

    I think you should name it after yourself (Dan's Chicken Cordon Bleu)
    if you're going to go with the wrong cheese.....

    Well....it dont have any 'cordons' in it either

    Though you could, i suppose serve it with a blue ribbon.
