Ingredients
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 5 slices Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 5 slices deli ham, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup (125 mL) panko breadcrumbs
  • or
  • ½ cup (125 mL) breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil
  • 10 Kalamata olives, halved
Instructions
  1. Pound chicken breasts to ½ -inch thickness then cut into 3-inch x 4-inch pieces.
  2. Place a cheese and ham slice on each breast leaving a bit of room around the edges. Roll the edges over the filling and secure with toothpicks.
  3. Coat the chicken evenly with the flour, egg wash then breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat (preferably cast iron), and cook the chicken until browned on all sides. Transfer to 175°C preheated oven for 30 minutes or until internal temperature of 77°C (170º F) is reached when inserted with a meat thermometer.
  5. Remove the toothpick and transfer to a serving platter. Place halved kalamata olives at the end of the cooked chicken cordon bleu for the appearance of fingernails.
  6. For extra effect pour a little tomato sauce over a few of the fingers.
