What's For Dinner Tonight: Chicken Cordon Blue

I will have a race recap up for you later this week, but today I wanted to share a recipe for one of our favorite Sunday dinners.

On Sundays, I try to make a bigger/fancier meal for my family.  We have a few go-to's that we usually rotate between for Sundays. I think I do this mostly because it gives us a good way to enjoy time together on Sunday evenings, it's something I know that every person in the family likes and will eat without a fight, and it helps send us off into the work week feeling loved. So today I'm sharing my recipe for Chicken Cordon Blue with all of you!



What you need:

Chicken breast, depending on the size of your family. I can usually get by with cutting the chicken breast in half widthwise and get enough for all 5 of us. Trevon and I each eat a whole one and the kids split the rest. So if you're feeding adults you might need more chicken than what we use, this recipe makes 4 chickens.
4 pieces of ham
4 pieces of cheese, we like mozzarella on this.
bread crumbs (we use the ones with Italian seasoning)
1 egg beaten
1 cup flour

Sauce:
1 can of cream of chicken,
1 cup sour cream
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp parsley
4 tbs butter

First, preheat oven to 350, then cut the chicken in half and pound it out to about 1/4 inch thickness. Salt and pepper each piece. Put ham and cheese on each piece and roll it up. Dredge each piece in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Place seam side down in a sprayed baking dish. Put a pad of butter on each piece of chicken. Bake chicken for 20 minutes. In the meantime, Mix cream of chicken, sour cream, water and seasonings together to make the sauce. When the chicken is done, pour the sauce over the chicken and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes. The thicker your chicken is, the longer it's going to take to cook. So get it as close to 1/4 inch as possible. Serve with mashed potatoes, using the sauce as the gravy or you could have this with baked potatoes! Enjoy :)!
