Ghetto Fabulous Chicken Cordon Bleu

Sometimes you just don’t have “quality” (high-priced) ingredients on hand, but you have have the general idea for something.

A typical chicken cordon bleu recipe calls for the following ingredients:
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 slices ham
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
But sometimes all you have on hand is:ccb
  • chicken breast tenders
  • bleu cheese dressing (with actual bleu cheese crumbles)
  • canadian ham
  • mixed veggies


  1. Set oven to broil.
  2. In an oven safe pan sauté the chicken in butter or olive oil.
  3. When browned, pour dressing over chicken and top with ham. 
  4. Place in oven and broil until the dressing forms a crust – about 5 minutes. 


Enjoy! (Tastes better than the picture makes it look)
