Chicken Cordon Bleu with Grilled Corn

My daughter had a friend sleep over so she got to decide what was for dinner.  Our kids really like Chicken Cordon Bleu but I really don’t like the frozen stuff you get that takes 25 minutes or so to bake.  Too much junk that is hard to pronounce in the ingredients.  The way we make it takes about 20 minutes to prep and cook and it is tastier!

For a family of four I do the following:

2 chicken breasts divided lengthwise down the center

1-2 slices of ham per serving

1-2 slices of Jarlsberg per serving

1 egg beaten

Panko bread crumbs

I place the ham and cheese on one half of the chicken and fold over.  I then dip it in the egg and then the Panko bread crumbs.  I pan fry in olive oil to brown both sides.  I usually finish off in the toaster oven at about 375 F.

Always soak the corn before grilling.  Feel free to take off a few layers of the husk and the silk but it’s not necessary.  You want to soak them for at least 10 minutes.

Once on the grill turn every 5 minutes.  The hotter the grill the more roasted the corn will be.  And sometimes it starts on fire!  Blow it out and carry on.  🙂

All in all this is a very quick and easy meal to make and the kids love it.
