Cordon Bleu Schnitzel

Cordon Bleu Schnitzel is a classic dish that combines a crispy, breaded cutlet with a flavorful filling of ham and cheese. This dish is a variation of the traditional Schnitzel, which is made with veal or pork cutlets. This version is a hearty and satisfying meal that is perfect for a special occasion or a weeknight dinner.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of cooked ham
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil for frying


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  3. Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on top of each chicken breast, and roll up the chicken to enclose the filling.
  4. Place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow dishes.
  5. Season the flour with salt and pepper.
  6. Dip the chicken rolls in the flour, then the eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs, making sure to coat each piece evenly.
  7. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded chicken rolls and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Remove the chicken rolls from the pan and place on a baking sheet.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  11. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
