I love chicken cordon bleu! I also love egg rolls. If you love both of these as much as I do, you will never make chicken cordon bleu the traditional way again! This is the best of both worlds.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet. Cook chicken strips until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  • Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, until well combined, about 1 minute. Increase heat to medium. Add milk gradually. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbling, about 7 minutes. Add shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir the sauce until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Beat egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl.

  • Lay 1 egg roll wrapper on a work surface. Fold 1 piece of ham in half and place in the center of the wrapper. Top with a half-slice of Swiss cheese and a chicken strip. Cover with another half-slice of Swiss cheese and folded piece of ham. Brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg mixture; fold wrapper in half over the filling and seal the edges. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place egg rolls in the hot oil; fry until crispy, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Cook's Note:

If cooking whole breast halves, dice and shred the chicken afterwards and spoon about 1/3 cup of it into each egg roll.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
