While growing up, my mom would make some dishes just on special occasion.  Chicken Cordon Bleu happens to one of those dishes.  It was a favorite of mine growing up and I realized I haven’t shared it with you yet.

Ham and cheese is rolled up inside a chicken breast. Then this recipe gives the chicken a dip in some melted butter then a coating of crushed cornflakes, which I love.  It has a whole different texture that bread crumbs.  

Then you have to top it off with a yummy cream sauce.  The sauce is made from 4 ingredients. The base is a can of cream of chicken soup. It then gets mixed with some sour cream, milk, and lemon juice. I love to serve chicken cordon bleu with a side of rice pilaf.

  • Dip each chicken roll in butter then roll in cornflake crumbs until coated.  Place chicken rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 40 minutes until juices run clear and chicken is golden brown.
  • When the chicken has cooked for 30 minutes makes the sauce.  Place the soup, sour cream, and lemon juice in a sauce pan.  Add a little milk to help thin out.  Heat over medium heat until heated through.  Add more milk if needed to make the sauce the desired thickness.
  • Serve chicken rolls topped with sauce.
