This entree is easy and delicious! It's one of my husband's favorites! Try to use the largest chicken breasts you can find so you'll be able to roll them easier.

I read the reviews and took the suggestion of some others. First of all I dipped the chicken in egg wash then laid the slices of ham and cheese on top. I got a plate and sprinkled breadcrumbs and placed the chicken on it and rolled it from there. I also added a pat of butter on top of each. It came out beautifully and you must use the sauce (which is 1 can of cream of chicken soup 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1 tbsp of lemon juice). I put a bed of white rice on the plates put the chicken cordon blue on top of the rice covered with the cream sauce. A good side dish is buttered rolls mmm-mhmm! All I can say was that it was such a beautiful presentation and absolutely heavenly! Read More

The chicken was dry despite correct cooking time. Perhaps a light sauce could have been served with it. I would not make this a 2nd time. Read More

I can't believe this awesome recipe! My boyfriend cannot stop talking about it. I told him I was making it for dinner and he came home early from work. Then when he tasted it......he moaned and groaned through the entire meal. He made a comment between each and every bite. He has thanked me over and over for making this for him. I have to say this recipe made me 'Queen for a Day.' I also dipped the chicken in egg before sprinkling the bread crumbs and I too added a small pat of butter on top of each of the breasts. I will definetely be making this at least once a month. I used the 'potatoe rounds' recipe from this site for the side dish. This entire meal turned out soooooooo good. You are a goddess Kiersten! Thank you so much.:) Read More

Fantastic. My variation includes: add some paprika to the breading and bread the whole chicken roll not just the top. I also like to cook my chicken hotter and faster to keep it juicy - 20-25 minutes at 400. Final suggestion: add the honey-mustard sauce from this site's Aussie Chicken recipe (inside the roll and/or as a dipping sauce). It really complements this dish! Read More

This recipe was absolutley amazing and very easy. I did follow some of the suggestions from previous raters(Mushroom soup sauce:1 can cream of mushroom soup 1/2 cup sour cream & 1 tbsp of lemon juice-served on top when finished; coated chicken in egg before adding bread crumbs; cooked at 400 for 25 min and I also added a small pat of butter to each breast before cooking). I would also suggest not to use sandwich ham. Anyway my boyfriend wants to marry me after tasting this recipe! Thanks! Read More

Very good! I can NEVER get breasts thin enough to roll so I cut breasts in half almost all the way through and laid a piece of Healthy Choice Ham and provolone in the cut; sprinkled Italian breadcrumbs on bottom of dish; laid chicken on top and then sprinkled more bread crumbs on chicken. Very tasty! Read More

Wow! These were looked and tasted wonderful and they were super simple to make. I bought big breasts and pounded them. They were quite easy to roll. I dipped them in egg first and then rolled them in the bread crumbs. I used the other reviewers suggestions and used provolone instead of swiss (just my preference) put a pat of butter on top of each and baked for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. I put a half slice of cheese on top and put it back in for 5 minutes. I also made the sauce recipe (1 can of cream of celery soup 1/2 cup of sour cream) and spooned it on top. Just lovely - thanks so much for a great recipe. Read More

A hit in my family of 5 including a 4 yr old the pickiest of all...The chicken cooked for 50 minutes..adding to its crispiness..and I didn't use toothpicks to secure them making them easier to eat. I used sliced cooked ham and processed swiss cheese to cut costs and found it to be a bit salty. I will try this again and again however I will cut down the amount of salt. It was totally simple to prepare! TY Read More

This recipe is incredible! It's so easy and sure to please any crowd. Provolone makes a great substitution for those who dislike swiss cheese. Read More
