Cordon Bleu Rollups with Honey-Mustard Wine Sauce


Rollups of chicken breast, Swiss cheese and ham are baked and topped with a white honey-mustard wine sauce. This is one of my favorites. It was trial and error. Play with the ingredient amounts, because I never use a recipe and these are approximations!

  1. To Marinate: Mix 2 cups wine, tarragon, parsley and oil in a nonporous glass dish or bowl and. Add chicken, and toss to coat. Cover dish or bowl, and refrigerate to marinate for at least 4 hours.

Roll and secure with toothpicks, then brown in skillet with marinade.

  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  4. Place browned rollups in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour a small amount of marinade over chicken, reserving at least 3 tablespoons in the skillet. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper to taste and a small amount of brown sugar.

  5. Bake chicken rollups in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until cooked through and chicken juices run clear.

  6. To Make Sauce: Meanwhile, add flour to skillet with reserved marinade. Add 2 cups wine, stirring constantly, letting sauce thicken. Then stir in mustard, honey, a bit of brown sugar and horseradish. Season with salt and pepper to taste, heat through and serve with chicken rollups.
