Checking out some other ways to make cordon bleu? Well, here is a cordon bleu recipe with a twist.
Am I the only one who finds most of the cordon bleu dry and almost unpalatable? Well, based on experience, it’s because the chicken meat dries easily especially when flattened.
So, it’s much better if we’ll find a way to remove the pounding and then, at the same time, we will be able to flatten it.
How? Let’s use a ground chicken breast.

Since the ground chicken breast is already flexible, flattening it will be an easier task. Also, by adding onions and garlic, we’ll add flavor and moisture, thus, preventing the whole cordon bleu from drying out.

- 5 cloves garlic – peeled

- 1/2 cup flour
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 pieces sweet ham – sliced into strips

- Oil for frying
- Debone the chicken breast.
- Using a food processor combine chicken breast, onion, garlic, egg, flour, salt, and pepper. Blend until a dough-like mixture appears.
