Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

It has been a long time since we have posted but, we promise or at least we will try to be better at posting. This recipe would be great for a New Years Eve party or any dinner party that you are planning during the holidays! They are great served as a main dish or as and appetizer! They are made of ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already! Try them out and let us know what you think!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

12-20 chicken breast tenderloins

4 pieces of Swiss cheese ( cut in to slices about 1 inch wide)

4 pieces of ham (also cut these about 1 inch wide and as long as the tenderloin)

12-20 sturdy toothpicks (make sure they are thick so we could hold the chicken together)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Egg Wash- 3 eggs whisked with 2 tablespoons water

Flour Mixture-

2 cups flour

1 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Bread Crumbs-

2 cups Panko crumbs (If you use Italian crumbs then you do not need to add the next 2 following ingredients)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Dipping Sauce-

1/2 cup Dijon Mustard

1/2 Cup Yellow Mustard

2 tablespoons Mayo

1/4 cup honey

Combine all the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a bowl.

Place chicken tenderloin between two pieces of wax and beat with tenderizer for a few seconds. After you have tenderized all of the pieces place a strip of ham and then a strip of cheese on top of each tenderloin. Also add a dot of honey mustard on one end of the each strip. Then begin to roll your strip, once it has been rolled stick a tooth pick through it.

Make egg wash by whisking 3 eggs with 3 tablespoons with water.

In pan combine flour mixture and in another pan put bread crumbs in it.

After chicken is rolled up roll it into flour mixture then dip in egg wash. Last roll into the bread crumbs. Lay the Cordon Bleu bites on a oiled pan, lightly brush butter on to the tops of the bites or spray with Pam lightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until they are golden brown and the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Serve with Dipping Sauce and Enjoy!!
