Chicken Cordon Bleu I
This recipe was great! I went with some of the suggestions that I had found in here and it turned out amazing!! Here's what I did:
I pretty much stuck to the original recipe although I made a few additions. I put the breadcrumbs on a large dinner plate, added the pepper, and used a dash of garlic salt instead. I tried to go lite on the garlic salt after reading reviews that the ham would add quite a bit to the saltiness of the dish. I, too, dipped the chicken in an eggwash before breading the chicken, and breaded both sides. Then, because I didn't have toothpicks, I wrapped the chicken in large thick-cut bacon and flattened it a little in my 9"x13".
I also took the suggestion to make the sauce using a cream of ____ (I've seen several different suggestions i.e. chicken, celery, mushroom, whatever...). I used cream of mushroom because I like it, and it's what I had offhand. I mixed it with what sour cream I had had left - approximately 4oz. I didn't have lemon juice, so I left it out.
I covered the chicken with the sauce and baked it on 385F for 35 minutes, took it out and added a slice of provolone and swiss cheese to the top, and placed it back in the oven for another 7 minutes.
This dish turned out AMAZING!!!
