Favorite Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe (Baked Not Fried!)
Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu is such an amazing recipe. I’m such a sucker for easy recipes. It’s the entire reason I started The Cookie Rookie. I love figuring out easier ways to make classic recipes. Less time, but just as much flavor. It’s not worth the hack if it doesn’t taste as good (or better) than the original!
We have worked our easy magic with classic recipes such as Easy French Silk Pie, our Easy White Queso, and Easy Banana Bread. Some of my favorite recipes with none of the fuss! This Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu is no exception.
This EASY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU is such a great recipe because to be honest, it’s juicier and tastier than some tradition cordon bleu recipes. I prefer this version to the pounded and rolled version for that reason. Plus it’s so much simpler. It has all the flavors you love about the original, but in an easy and quick version. I’m in love!
Easy Dijon Sauce for Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu
Two words…dijon and WINE. This Chicken Cordon Bleu Sauce is everything I want it to be and more. I’m lucky if I can make this recipe without diving into the sauce head first. It’s nothing short of divine.
This may be a super simple recipe, but it’s still pretty and dressy if you want it to be. It’s the ultimate recipe to make for company and it’s sure to please even the pickiest eaters. The sauce is EVVVVERYTHING and I cannot get enough. It’s a similar sauce to what we used on our Chicken Cordon Bleu Meatballs (!!!) and I loved it then just as much as I do now. I think it’s the white wine. Yep…it’s the white wine.

The French term “Cordon Bleu” translates roughly to “Blue Ribbon”. So basically this BLUE RIBBON CHICKEN is the best recipe ever. I know you’ll agree.
How to make Chicken Cordon Bleu traditionally?
The more complicated version of this recipe calls for pounding the chicken thin, rolling it with ham and cheese, and then breading and frying. This Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu is not only simpler, it’s also HEALTHIER! (no frying)

Traditionally you’ll find Swiss Cheese on this recipe. We love it with Swiss or even better, with Gruyere.
