Cordon Bleu

Hello again, my dear food enthusiasts. Today i have a very special treat for you, a variation of a traditional German meal: The Schnitzel. Without further ado I present to you: 



Click Read more for the recipe, step by step pictures with a descriptive instruction on how to make this delicious meal.







The Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 slices hard salami or ham
  • 3 slices old cheese ( I took muenster cheese, very intense taste, compliments the chicken perfectly )
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 plain bread crumbs
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • oil
Preparation and cooking time combined: 40-50 minutes

Step one:
Butterfly cut your breast so that it will have the maximum surface size. You will want to press it a little, either use a big glass jar for that or a kitchen hammer. Be gentle.



Then, begin spreading your ham ( or salami ) and cheese on top of the breast. Cut and dice the garlic and sprinkle it on top as well.



If the chicken is resistant in being folded, it is perfectly acceptable to use tooth picks to keep them together. Just don't forget to pull them out before you begin eating.



Now, dip and roll the wrapped up breasts in a plate of flour, once you are finished with all of your breasts do the same thing but exchange the flour with bread crumbs. Mine looked like this after round one:



So I decided to give them another bath in both the flour and the bread crumbs:



Once your chicken looks like this you can prepare your pan. Sprinkle some oil in it and turn the stove on low-medium. Then insert breasts. Cook for 10-15 minutes on each side.



You will notice some juice flowing out once they reach their optimum state. It will also smell very nice. Here a close-up of a nearly done Cordon Bleu.



Serve them with whatever you like, I suggest either fried potatoes, French fries or even rice with a side dish of salad. Goes with nearly anything.



As usual, enjoy ;)

  1. I love Cordon Bleu, but I can't imagine myself putting muenster in it. The recipe is very helpful, I'm sure any substitutions I would make would still work with it!

  19. That's not Schnitzel. It is Cordon Bleu.... and I hope none of you dare to put Salami in there! One of my favourite foods and you tell them to put salami in it -.-

  20. Delicious! I love to eat this but its so hard to make. Oh btw its not from Schnitzel. Schnitzel is pig meat - you take chicken meat for that ;)
    In the middle of the meat then is some little Schinken.

  29. Oooh, muenster is my favorite cheese! However, I prefer it room temperature, the flavor is much yummier.
