Bacon Wrapped Chicken Cordon Bleu

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Cordon Bleu

Understand your worth. Value your life. And appreciate your BACON. :D

Ingredients:
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 ounces bleu cheese
  • 4 slices black forest ham
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 12-15 toothpicks

  • How to prepare:
    1. Start by trimming up the breast meat. I separate the 2 halves and trim off excess meat.
    2. Carefully slice each breast portion in half lengthwise, like so:
    3. After you get it started, lay it open as you finish cutting it in half. Be careful to leave both halves intact. You don’t want to cut all the way through; just enough to lay it open flat.
    4. They should look like this when you are finished.
    5. Get all of your ingredients ready. This way you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination.
    6. Lay a piece of ham on the chicken breast and put cheese in the middle. Here I am using some horseradish Havarti for my spouse, who doesn’t care for bleu cheese.
    7. This is what you have so far: cheese on ham on chicken.
    8. Fold ham over cheese, like this:
    9. Then fold another side of ham over.
    10. Carefully fold chicken in two, covering ham. Take a piece of bacon and gently stretch it by pulling on both ends. Beginning at one end, begin to wrap chicken.
    11. Continue to wrap chicken to the opposite end.
    12. Once you have wrapped around the chicken, take the second piece of bacon and wrap end to end. Secure with toothpicks as needed.
    13. Place wrapped chicken in an oven proof skillet (I like using cast iron) that has been greased with butter, coconut oil, or bacon grease.
    14. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a skillet over medium heat, brown bacon on all 4 sides.
    15. Remove pan from stove top and place in oven. Cook for 45 minutes or until chicken is done. Let sit for 10 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
