What is Cordon Bleu?
It’s not known exactly where cordon bleu began, but it is known that, in its purest, most basic form, it’s a schnitzel stuffed with cheese and ham. Schnitzel is a boneless fried meat, one that can be made from beef, chicken, pork, turkey, and other meats. The sort of chicken cordon bleu described in this post began showing up in American restaurants in the 1960’s, and is a specifically American version of the dish.

Hi, I’m Chef Ted coming to you from the Rada Cutlery kitchen. Today I’m going to show you a real easy version of Chicken Cordon Bleu. I’ve got a couple pretty decent sized chicken breasts. These are really, really nice chicken breasts. There’s not much of a fat tip on them. I’m using the Rada Outdoors Fillet Knife, actually. It’s good for making sure you get the little tendons and attaching tissue cut.
I start on the thicker side and cut along so that we leave plenty of room for stuffing. I’m going to use the Rada Cheese Knife. I’m going to cut them kind of thick. We’ve got some Canadian bacon and I’m going to reserve a couple pieces of that as well. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. These are really nice sized chicken breasts, so yes, it worked.
Now I’m going to make an egg wash with a couple tablespoons of water and the Rada Handi-Stir. Here, what I have is a little bit of wheat cracker with a little bit of Panko bread crumbs mixed into it. I’m going to use some sugar, and for seasoning a little bit of season salt. You use garlic, onion powder, pepper, whatever you prefer. The seasoning that I use has all of it mixed together already. I season it fairly heavy. I’m going to take the chicken breast that’s stuffed and I’m going to carefully roll it so I don’t lose any of my stuff out of it. Then from there we give it a nice coat, take it over into the seasoned bread crumbs and wheat crackers. This is the easy way of making this. This would probably get me kicked out of culinary school!
Then I’m going to put them in the oven at 350-400 degrees, however your oven works best, and cook them until the internal temp is 165 degrees. There it is. A real quick and easy chicken cordon bleu.
