It’s time for Cooking With The Husband!
It”s Foodie Friday at Michael Lee West’s wonderful blog Design’s by Gollum and The Husband is going to take this one~ The man can cook I tell ya!
He made the most amazing Chicken Cordon Bleu for our date night dinner! I had to share it with you…
I can’t resist taking pictures of him when he’s in the kitchen.
Don’t know what it is but I LOVE a man who knows his way around the kitchen!
Doesn’t this look yumalicious!?
It was really amazing! The chicken was so flavorful and tender…
He bakes the potatoes in the oven rubbed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and garlic powder and smothered in buttery mushrooms…
Here’s the recipe…
Chicken Cordon Bleu
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 slices of Swiss cheese
6 slices Canadian bacon
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup white wine
1 teaspoon chicken boullion granules (Low sodium)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup heavy whipping cream
~Pound out chicken breasts. Put a cheese and a ham slice on each breast. (keeping away from edges) Fold the edges of the chicken over the filling. Put a toothpick in to secure. Mix the flour and Paprika Coat the chicken with the mixture.
~Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken until brown on both sides. Add the wine and boullion. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes until chicken is not pink .
~Remove the toothpicks and move the chicken to a platter. Blend the cornstarch with the cream in a small bowl and whisk slowly into the skillet. Cook stiring until thickened. Pour over the chicken.
This was perfect! TTFN Peeps~ Prayers coming your way for a restful and lighthearted weekend~
