Chicken Cordon Bleu
Sometimes I like to feel super fancy.
On those days I like to sip Martinelli’s out of fancy glasses while listening to Josh Groban and cooking this chicken cordon bleu.
We won’t talk about the fact that I more than likely have spit up in my hair and a bleach stain on my favorite yoga pants. Actually, we can totally talk about that because I wouldn’t trade it for the entire world.
Maybe I’d trade the bleach stain on my favorite yoga pants, but I have learned how to rock the spit up hair by now.
Seriously, you just wipe it out, spray some perfume on there and do your thang and usually nobody is the wiser. Unless you run into fellow moms. They can spot spit up hair from a mile away.
You might think this is like way too fancy, and because it is fancy it is probably hard to make but it couldn’t be easier.
This is yet another fantastic recipe passed on from Mama Mackey. She is so awesome, and so fabulous. She is seriously one of the most talented people I’ve ever met, and one day I hope to be half as cool as she is.
Here is where we sing praises to our silicone baking mats. See all that cheese that looks like it has escaped? Well, it can think again. You just scoop up that deliciousness and go to town.

This chicken cordon bleu is really impressive, and nobody will ever believe how easy it is!

Swiss cheese slices
half stick butter, melted
1 package Ritz crackers, crushed
Marinate chicken in lemon juice with herbs for one hour.
Place a packet of Ritz crackers in a food processor and blend until crushed. Or put them in a ziploc bag and pound with a rolling pin until crushed into crumbs.
Take the chicken out of the lemon juice and pound until thin. Place prosciutto and one cheese slice on top of each chicken breast. Roll up and dunk in melted butter and then Ritz crumbs. Dash with season salt and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
*There are no measurements on here because it just depends on how many pieces you want. If you want four pieces, then you need 4 small chicken breasts, 4 cheese slices, 4 slice of prosciutto, etc. You got this! As far as the lemon juice and herbs go, I usually just throw in enough lemon juice to cover all the chicken and 2 sprigs of each herb torn up with my hands.
